Is there anything special I have to include when connecting to a remote sql server? Here's my scenario:

A report is created using a local database(design db). The VB application will use a remote sql server(production). The VB form with the CR viewer is passed the report name, and the following code is used:

Set Report = globalCrystalReportApplication.OpenReport(globalPath & globalCrystalReport & ".rpt")
    'If the intCentral = 1, then it will set the datasource
    'to the SQL server.
    If intCentral = 1 Then
    Report.Database.SetDataSource ("Provider=SQEDB;Data  
    End If
    Dim lngIndex As Long
    Set crxRTables = Report.Database.Tables
    For lngIndex = 1 To crxRTables.Count
    For Each crxRTable In crxRTables
       Set crxRTable = crxRTables.Item(lngIndex)
   If intCentral = 1 Then
       gblSQLServerTCP, "DatabaseName",   
       gblSQLServerDBUserID, gblSQLServerDBPassword
   crxRTable.Location = "DatabaseName.dbo." &
   Else crxRTable.SetLogOnInfo "C:\LocalDB.mdb", , , "Password"       crxRTable.SetTableLocation "C:\LocalDB.mdb",crxRTable.Name, ""
   End If
   lngIndex = lngIndex + 1
 Next crxRTable

Is there any other step I need to connect to a remote DB?
