I have a VB program where i am prompting user to enter the fromdate and todate in a datepicker.

This i am trying to pass to an crystal report.

The crystal report is getting pupolated using a stored procedure. This stored procedure takes 2 parameters as datetime: fromdate and todate

Now when i am trying to open my reports in crystal report everything is working fine but when i am trying to pass value from Vb using following code:

        .ParameterFields(0) = "fromdate;DateTime(" & l_intFromYY & "," & l_intFromMM & "," & l_intFromDD & ");TRUE"
        .ParameterFields(1) = "todate;DateTime(" & l_intToYY & "," & l_intToMM & "," & l_intToDD & ");TRUE"


its throwing error as

err.description : Invalid parameter field value & err.number : 20553

However my other reports which are getting populated from simple table is working fine.

I tried using

        .ParameterFields(0) = "fromdate;Date(" & l_intFromYY & "," & l_intFromMM & "," & l_intFromDD & ");TRUE"
        .ParameterFields(1) = "todate;Date(" & l_intToYY & "," & l_intToMM & "," & l_intToDD & ");TRUE"

Need help of experts..

You need to include the time with the parameter.  Here is how I did it with the OCX

    cr_Generic_Report.ParameterFields(0) = txt_First_Param_Name & ";Date(" & _
                            Mid(txt_First_Date, 7, 4) & "," & _
                            Mid(txt_First_Date, 4, 2) & "," & _
                            Mid(txt_First_Date, 1, 2) & _
                            ")Time(00,00,00,000);True"
    cr_Generic_Report.ParameterFields(1) = txt_Second_Param_Name & ";Date(" & _
                            Mid(txt_Second_Date, 7, 4) & "," & _
                            Mid(txt_Second_Date, 4, 2) & "," & _
                            Mid(txt_Second_Date, 1, 2) & _
                            ")Time(00,00,00,000);True"

have you made sure that the months and days come out as 2 digits?

e.g.  
 .ParameterFields(0) = "fromdate;Date(" & l_intFromyy & RIGHT('00' & l_intfromMM, 2) & right('00' & l_intfromdd,2) & ");TRUE"
        .ParameterFields(1) = "todate;Date("l_inttoyy & RIGHT('00' & l_inttoMM, 2) & right('00' & l_inttodd,2)  & ");TRUE"

i guess you are using the ocx?

It seems that it would be bes to use the .StoredProcParam when passing a datetime value to a stored procedure. something like
CrystalReport1.StoredProcParam(1) = "1998-01-01 00:00:00.000"

Another possible solution:
We pass our datetime fields as text strings parameters from VC++ through the report to the stored proc and then convert them at the beginning of the proc.

A Line from my module, it's working, Try this

Formula = "{cmd_tOrder.DateUpdated} >= DateTime(" & dtpFrom.Year & "," & dtpFrom.Month & "," & dtpFrom.Day & ",00,00,00)"

'Explanation
{cmd_tOrder.DateUpdated} = Table.Field
DateTime is Crystal Report 9's Date/Time function
dtpFrom is the date control in VB

pass Formula to RecordSelectionFormula

hope it will work
