I am assuming that you are using the control and not the crw-api.

Use the

Report.StoredProcParam(Parameter Array Index%)[= newParameter$]
for each parm.

Note that the parms are in the same order as listed in your report.

Hope that helps

OOOPS...REREAD YOUR QUESTION.  If you're trying to get the result of a stored proc via parms...don't.  Always return data from the stored proc's resultset...i.e. have the sp return data in a table like fashion.

actually, i am using crystal report 5.0 the application, and i need the paremeters to display only on my reports, because my parameters are actually start date and end date, i only need to display these on my reports, you know how?

yes....modify the sp to return the parms in the resultset...then use them as datafields....
