URGENT! Crystal Caching Parameters

Hi,

Using Coldfusion i'm calling a report that is run so frequently that i'm keeping the object open.

               if (Not StructKeyExists(Application, Attributes.Persist)) {
                    Application[Attributes.Persist] = StructNew();
                    Application[Attributes.Persist].o_CrystalReport = CreateObject('component', '#Application.DbSource#.nuReport');
                    Application[Attributes.Persist].o_CrystalReport.Init(Application.DbServer);
                    Application[Attributes.Persist].o_CrystalReport.OpenReport(Attributes.Report,'rassdk://');
                    Application[Attributes.Persist].o_CrystalReport.SetDatasource(Application.DBSource,Application.DbServer,Application.DbUser,Application.DbPass);
               }
               Application[Attributes.Persist].o_CrystalReport.RunReport(5,'#GetPrinter.Path##Attributes.JobId#',Attributes.Parameters);

So the only bit that gets run more than once is the last line which just calls the report which will already be open. The problem that i'm having is the report is always run with the set of parameters that were first passed, even though im passing the parameters on this line, theres a couple of sub functions, but here's the bit of code that sets the parameters, can anyone tell me how to replace the existing parameters.

               for (i=1; i lte ListLen(Arguments.parameters); i=i+1)
               {
                    result = ListgetAt(Arguments.parameters,i);
                    ParamCollection = getClientDoc().DataDefinition().ParameterFields;
                    ParamToChange = ParamCollection.Item(i-1);
                    NewValue = GetFactory().CreateObject("CrystalReports.ParameterFieldDiscreteValue");
                    NewValue.Value = result;
                    TempParam = GetFactory().CreateObject("CrystalReports.ParameterField");
                    ParamToChange.CopyTo (TempParam);
                    TempParam.CurrentValues().Add(NewValue);
                    ParamController = getClientDoc().DataDefController().ParameterFieldController();
                    ParamController.Modify (ParamToChange, TempParam);
               }

I believe (from my experience with VB) you need to fully close the report and the viewer to pass new parameters.  The only other idea I have would be to add a line like
crReport.DiscardSavedData or force a refresh of the viewer.

I thought this over and decided I'm rusty on using the RDC, it's been a good year.  Do you have access to the Technical Developer's guide?  It has great resources on it.  Crystal's site has some great ASP examples which you can pretty well copy line for line.  

My Crystal development project unfortunately came with paid for tech support by the client, so I simply called them for any strange issues and let them sweat over it.  I did however, learn how incredibly deep and invaluable their knowledgebase is.  

mlmcc has a great suggestion.  I don't remember offhand, but there are a few commands for initializing the report, it's values, etc, that you can use at different times.  The answer is definitely out there, especially for a product as widely used as CR.

Best of luck,
sl
