To pass the paramters to Crystal Report, you need to create two additional fields in your report structure. Save the Rpt file and in your codes, get the value for these fields and insert it into the report structure.

To change the title of the report while you run it, go to the menu item "Insert" and choose Formula. Click New to bring up the FormulaBuilder. Type in the condition to change the title. Eg:

If {tbl.Balance} = 0 then
     "Report Number 1"
     "Report Number 2"
Save the formula and drag it to where you want to display it.

Hope this helps! Btw, i think you should allocate more marks :-)
