WHat code are you using to pass the parameters?

One of the options on the call to CR is to prompt or not for parameters.

Someone recently asked the exact same question here.  You could save on points by quickly browsing or searching through the previously asked questions before posting your own.

The answer I gave for that one was that it is not necessary to define parameters in Crystal.  If you do, I think it is difficult, if not impossible to prevent the prompt from appearing.

Instead of parameters, create formula fields.  Then, in your code, just as you'd set the parameters, do:

Report1.Formulas(0) = "Cust_ID=5"
Report1.Action .......

Make sure to remove the parameters from the report, or you will still get the prompt.

I pass parameters routinely without a prompt.  It is simply done through the CR control but each one is slightly different.
