Physical Database not found.

I am trying to compile a report using VB 6.0.  No matter what I try, I cannot get it to open the datasource when installed on a different machine.

I would like to have it use certain Foxpro .dbf files (located in the same directory as the report program).
I have found a few references on how to do this:

crReport.DataFiles(0) = App.Path & "\something.dbf"

I am not exactly sure where to enter this code.  It does not appear to be working for me.

Let me explain what I am trying to do.  I have a program that uses a Foxpro database.  I would like to create custom reports for customers that do not require them to have Crystal Reports or VB.  

I am really looking for a good resource on how I might accomplish this.  Any help is appreciated.
