Pass a parameter value to control what a formula returns.  Sort on that formula.

You don't pass an order by clause but sort fields.

Public WithEvents cr_Generic_Report As CrystalReport

cr_Generic_Report.SortFields(1) = "{View.Field1}"
cr_Generic_Report.SortFields(2) = "{View.Field2}"

I believe you can pass as many as needed.  I have passed as many as 6.

mlmcc,

The problem with the direct approach is that there is no graceful way to recover from an incorrect value being passed in.

With the parameter approach, the formula can have a default field used if the parameter value makes no sense.

Agree until I need to sort on two fields or then someone want 4 fields.  I have to keep changing the report.
