I have created a report that is based on a command within a data environment. This is easy if the command has no parameters, but if params are required, how do you pass the param values to the command ?

TIA

Here is an article by Microsoft that describes passing a parameter to a Command object.  It comes with explanation and sample code!

I agree that this explains passing params to a data environment, but it does not explain how to do it from a data report.

In the report you select which command to base the report on, but when the report is generated, I cannot see where you would pass the params to the command function....

Just invoke the command first:

DataEnvironment1.Command1 parm1, parm2

then invoke the DataReport:

DataReport1.PrintReport

This works!
