Hi there
Using Crystal Version 9.0 onto a SQL database.
Users would like to be able select single or multiple parameters from below list:-
* Product Name (string)              - discrete
* Product ID (number)                - range
* Suburb/City (string)               - range
* Product Category (String)          - range
* Status (string)                    - discrete
* Expiry Date (date)                 - range
* Last edited (date)                 - range
Can I achieve a selection criteria like this in Crystal?
Must be able to accept 1 or multiple selections from list.
Thanks in advance.

How will they be selecting?

Are you running from CR or from an application?

I have an application that does exactly that.  I built a form that allows the user to enter the selections some can be ALL then once they say PROCESS I check each parameter and build a filter or where clause that is passed to the report.  The users can select discrete, date ranges and like strings.
