Passing Parameters to Seagate Crystal Reports

I am using a Visual Basic Application as the Front End and Crytsal Reports as the Reporting tool.  I want to generate some reports on the base of the dates provided by the user, for that I have to pass the "from date" and the "to date" to the Crystal Reports as parameters.  But every time I pass the SQL query to the crystal reports alongwith the parameters it always gives me an error and never the correct report with the data is generated.  So can u tell me how can I pass the SQL query alongwith the dates as the parameters to the Crystal Reports.  I am using VB 6.0 and Crystal Reports 8.0

do not declare your parameter as date, declare parameter as text and then in your query - WHERE clause you convert the text into date using CDate() function.

i.e.
PARAMETERS mFromDt Text(125), mTODt Text(125);
SELECT * FROM tbl_Master WHERE FromDate >= cdate(mFromDt) AND ToDate <= cdate(mToDt)

pass your parmater as text in vb.

i hope this will solve your problem.
