URL Reporting connecting to SAP R/3


We have Crystal Reports that connect to ABAP Function Modules in our R/3 4.7 system as the data source. To minimize the number of user prompts, we use URL Reporting to pass all the required parameters for the report. The one thing we have not been able to do is specify data connection information in the URL. We currently get around this by setting the data connection information (SAP server, system #, client #, etc.) in the Database Configuration for the report in the CMC. The downside to this is that the report is now limited to running against a single SAP client.

Is there a way to specify the SAP connection information (server, system #, client #, etc) in the URL Reporting string? I know it can be done for SQL data sources through the USER- and PASSWORD- commands on the URL, but is there a similar way to specify SAP connection information?

Our reporting environment is BOBJ Enteprise XI 3.1, reports are developed in Crystal Reports 2008.
