What version of crystal are you using?
I have the answer but I may only be valid for crystal 7.

Use "ParameterPromptingEnabled" property of the object "CRPEAuto.Report" and set the value to false for not prompting for parameters.

Or you can use Crystal Report OCX that comes with VB (so it doesn't matter what version of CR you have). Let's say I have a report which based on a Stored Procedure. This Stored Procedure has one parameter:

    With CrystalReport1
        .Connect = "DSN = MyDSN;UID = UserName;PWD = Password;DSQ = DatabaseName"
        .RetrieveStoredProcParams
        .StoredProcParam(0) = "2"
        .Action = 1
    End With


Note that I pass 2 as a string. Cyrstal Reports will expect all parameters as a string, although it knows their real data types.
