To my knowledge, Crystal does not allow access to stored proc parameters at run time.  The only way I have found to do this is to include your parameters in your return set.

I'm not sure about informix, but in MS-SQL if you're going to return data, the last line of your stored proc is usually a select like:
SELECT * FROM #TABLENAME

In this example, #TABLENAME is a temp table that holds the dataset you want to return.

If your input parameter is named @inparam, your select would become:
SELECT *, @inparam AS "paramname" FROM #TABLENAME

This is not totoally efficient as it returns your parameter(s) in every row of your result set.  But you can exlude that field from the detail section of your report and just include it wherever you want.

Hope this is helpful!   :)
