Goal: to reorder the parameter fields in my report

My actions:

1) Open report in design view
2) Open Field Explorer
3) Expand Parameter fields
4) Move some fields around using the up and down arrows at the top of the Field Explorer window
5) click Close to close the Field Explorer
6) Save Report

Result:

I open back up the report and go to field explorer only to find that the fields go back to where they were and my rearranging never stays

Why?

What version of Crystal?

I have CR7.  When I reorder the parameters the order stays.

What is your purpose in rearranging the order?

In order to change the order of the procedure parameters, you may need to change their order in the procedure (and then do a verify database to reflect changes made to the procedure).

Here are some KB articles from Business Objects on the subject:

So true, rhinok.  I was looking at parameters being added in Crystal but if they are stored procedure parameters then you must change the order in the stored procedure.

there are only 2 parameters in the stored procedure signified with @ and they are @startdate and @neddate.

So all the other parameters in Crystal are without the @...so then there is no way to do this

Unfortunately, dba123, there are so many factors here that its tough to tell what would work.  You have asp passing multiple parameters to Crystal.  Two of the parameters are from the stored proc, the rest are Crystal Reports Parameters.  Theoretically, you could just reorder the parameters in Crystal and save the report, but this is clearly not working.  I wish I had a better solution for you :-(
