CR 9 Any way to change the data location prior to exec within VFP9


I issue a createobject at the beginning:
ocr=CREATEOBJECT("CrystalRuntime.Application. 9")

As you can see I have it hardcoded.  I could use a variable here and have the users furnishes another location but I don't know how to get the report to respect the "on the fly" location.

I know this can be done within CR9 but all they have is the ability to run the report.
