Hey all.. i'm using Crystal reports for the first time here at work.  It's a little tricky but i'm getting the hang of it.  Anyway.. i've written code to make VB pass a value to the paramater instead of having the viewer prompt the user.  the code is like this

Set crpParamDefs = m_crReport.ParameterFields
  For Each crpParamDef In crpParamDefs
     Select Case crpParamDef.ParameterFieldName
        Call crpParamDef.SetCurrentValue([THE_VALUE_TO_SET_IT_TO)
     End Select
  Next crpParamDef
but here is the question... when i setup the paramater, i set it up to allow for multiple values.. How can i pass it multiple values?  It is my understanding that .SetCurrentValue only passes 1 value.  Thank for any help.

Knowledge base article I referred to is
How to pass multiple parameter values to a report at runtime.

It should supply the answer.
