I am using Crystal Reports 6.0 but I have also tested on 8.5.  I am running SQL Server 2000.  

I have a stored Procedure that has two varchar parameters (a date range).

I have a report trying to report on the results of this stored procedure.

Whenever I try to verify the database, it asks for the values of the parameters but when I put in the values that I used to test the Stored Procedure on SQL I get the following error

ODBC Error:  [Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver]String data, right truncation

I have requirement to use the ODBC driver so I cannot use Crystal's SQL driver.

I am getting desperate.  HELP!!

Just a short note:  I am using NT4 and Crystal 8.5 is running on Win 2K.  I am positive it is an ODBC issue and I really need a workaround...  It only happens with Stored Procedures with parameters.
