I have a small VB.Net Web Application with two Web Forms. I have a populated DDL on the first form. Using server.transfer I can pass the DDL.selecteditemvalue to the second web form and display it in a label, text box etc. with no problems.

I also have a Crystal Report on the second web form, with a viewer. How do I use the value I have passed from the DDL in the SQL statement on the Crystal Report. For example select a from b where c = ddl.selecteditemvalue.

Any help would be appreciated.

Easiest solution is to place the passed value in a textbox on the destination form (maybe even set .visibility to false) and reference as normal from Crystal...

Have Fun,
