OLE Security Rights

Hello Group,

I know inside of an ODBC report you can include a connection string to house the username and password needed to access the database. Is there anything like that for OLE reports? I've turned off the 'Integrated Security' and typed in the username and password manually when setting the datasource inside crystal. However this does nothing when running it from the Epicor Menu. I also see where you can add properties to your data source in Crystal, i messed with this for a little bit but didn't see anything that looked promising. 

Also i looked into applying a customization to the 'Custom Crystal report Link' menu item. Even though Epicor allows for a customization to be made, the box to set the customization inside Menu Maintenance is grayed out. 

Any suggestions or information would be greatly appreciated.
