i have an application develop using VB6 & crystal report active designer. i have set some parameter in the report using the approach as below:

                'Set report parameter
                Dim CRXParamDefs As CRAXDRT.ParameterFieldDefinitions
                Dim CRXParamDef As CRAXDRT.ParameterFieldDefinition
                Set CRXParamDefs = RptInvT.ParameterFields

                    For Each CRXParamDef In CRXParamDefs
                        With CRXParamDef
                            Select Case .ParameterFieldName
                                Case "paramAdd1"
                                .SetCurrentValue pAdd1
                                Case "paramAdd2"
                                .SetCurrentValue pAdd2
                                Case "paramAdd3"
                                .SetCurrentValue pAdd3
                                Case "paramAdd4"
                                .SetCurrentValue pAdd4
                                Case "paramInstr1"
                                .SetCurrentValue pInstr1
                                Case "paramInstr2"
                                .SetCurrentValue pInstr2
                                Case "paramInstr3"
                                .SetCurrentValue pInstr3
                                Case "paramInstr4"
                                .SetCurrentValue pInstr4
                            End Select

Do you mean on the report?  Parameters don't have to appear on the report.

If you have put the on the report you should be able to FORMAT the field where suppress is an option.

Are you referring to in the VB program?  If so what value will you pass for a suppressed parameter?

I am still not clear where you want to suppress the parameters.

Do you mean you don't want to have to pass the parameter?
