Hi

I am using Seagate Crystal Reports 8.5 with VB6. I have the following code:

    Dim adoRsFinal As New ADODB.Recordset
    Dim CRXApplication As New CRAXDRT.Application
    Dim CRXReport As CRAXDRT.Report
    Dim CRXDatabase As CRAXDRT.Database
       
   Set CRXReport = CRXApplication.OpenReport("C:\temp\vickram\rptCompBandsEmployees.rpt", 1)  
   
   adoRsFinal.Open "C:\TEMP\VICKRAM\XML2.xml"  
   
   Set CRXDatabase = CRXReport.Database
   CRXDatabase.SetDataSource adoRsFinal, 3
   
   CRXReport.EnableParameterPrompting = False
   rptCRViewer.ReportSource = CRXReport
   
   CRXReport.ParameterFields.Item(1).Value = 1 <----------- I GET A OBJECT REQUIRED ERROR HERE

The report works fine without the parameters. If I try setting a parameter value, I get a "Object Required" error.

Please help

Thanks

You probably need to add a parameter first using:
CRXReport.ParameterFields.Add

KJHDI12,

I can retrieve the name using

 CRXReport.ParameterFields.Item(1).Name

Then how come value is not working?

Try this:
CRXReport.ParameterFields(1).SetCurrentValue (1)

They are discussing exactly what your having prolems with.

[form.]Report.ParameterFields(ArrayIndex)[="ParameterName;NewValue;SetCurrentValue"]
SetCurrentValue can be TRUE or FALSE
sale_purchase.ParameterFields(0) = "parameter0;your_string;TRUE"
