1. You can point the parameters to a in memory variable with a function call.  ie.

Public Sub SetParam(ByVal InputVal, ByVal ParamID)

    arrParameter(ParamID) = InputVal

End Sub

 before opening the report then redefine the query to do


Public Function GetParam(ByVal ParamID)

    GetParam = arrParameter(ParamID)

End Function

2. You can use a hidden form with controls, populate the controls, then have the select statement reference the form controls


3. You can modify the SQL statement on the fly in the reports Open event and supply the actual values to the string.
