Default CRD vba code no longer works

I use the crystal report designer i to export a crystal report as a tab separated text from Microsoft Access. The report was originally written in Crystal 8.5 and connected to the Oracle back end database via ODBC.

This code worked:

Public Function ExportCrystalReport(strReportLocation As String, _
                                    strReportFileName As String, _
                                    strExportLocation As String, _
                                    strExportFileName As String, _
                                    Optional intParameterValue As Integer = 0) As Boolean

Dim crxApp As New CRAXDRT.Application
Dim crxReport As CRAXDRT.Report
Dim crxParameter As CRAXDRT.ParameterFieldDefinition

On Error GoTo ErrHandler

    Set crxReport = crxApp.OpenReport(strReportLocation & strReportFileName)

    crxApp.LogOnServer "pdsora7.dll", "EMS", , "XXXX", "xxxx"

    With crxReport
        With .ExportOptions
            .DiskFileName = strExportLocation & strExportFileName
            .DestinationType = crEDTDiskFile
            .FormatType = crEFTTabSeparatedText
        End With

        If intParameterValue = 0 Then
        Else
            Debug.Print .ParameterFields.Count
            Debug.Print .ParameterFields.Item(1).Name
            .ParameterFields.Item(1).AddCurrentValue intParameterValue
        End If

        'Don't prompt for export options
        .Export False
    End With

    Set crxReport = Nothing

    crxApp.LogOffServer "pdsora7.dll", "EMS", , "XXXX", "xxx"

    Set crxApp = Nothing
    ExportCrystalReport = True

CleanUp:
    Exit Function

ErrHandler:
    ExportCrystalReport = False
    MsgBox "Error whilst exporting the report " & strReportFileName, vbCritical

End Function

However, we have since upgraded to crystal 10 standard edition so the ODBC link is no longer available. The report now connects using the Microsoft OLEDB provider for Oracle. I've changed the references in Access so that the "Crystal reports ActiveX Designer Run time Library 10.0" is referenced rather than the 8.5 version. I've also changed the log on server command so that it uses the P2Soledb.dll to connect to the database. This appears to be ok as I can view details about the report (eg crxreport.ReportAuthor) but I now get an error at the ".Export false" line.

Anyone got any ideas? Am I using the correct logonserver line?
