I need to select records for a Crystal Report.  I thought the best way was to create a view - i need to select records based on their shipment number - my code is below and the question follows:
--------------
DECLARE @ship char(5);
SET              @ship = '1012';
                          SELECT     dbo.tblShipments.id AS ShipNum, dbo.tblShipments.Destination AS Destination, dbo.tblShipments.Date AS ShipDate,
                                                  dbo.tblShipmentData.palletid AS Pallet, dbo.tblShipmentData.tubcode AS Product, dbo.tblShipmentData.qty AS qty,
                                                  dbo.tblShipmentData.dateprod AS DateProd
                           FROM         dbo.tblShipments RIGHT OUTER JOIN
                                                  dbo.tblShipmentData ON dbo.tblShipments.id = dbo.tblShipmentData.shipnum
                           WHERE     (dbo.tblShipments.id = @ship)
---------------------
Now, how, in VB or Chrystal, so i pass the current @ship value to the view????

you wouldnt do that ...

you would either use a stored procedure and pass a parameter or use ...

view ...
                          SELECT     dbo.tblShipments.id AS ShipNum, dbo.tblShipments.Destination AS Destination, dbo.tblShipments.Date AS ShipDate,
                                                  dbo.tblShipmentData.palletid AS Pallet, dbo.tblShipmentData.tubcode AS Product, dbo.tblShipmentData.qty AS qty,
                                                  dbo.tblShipmentData.dateprod AS DateProd
                           FROM         dbo.tblShipments RIGHT OUTER JOIN
                                                  dbo.tblShipmentData ON dbo.tblShipments.id = dbo.tblShipmentData.shipnum

SELECT * from YourViewName where ShipNum = '1012'
