Hello All.
I am having a problem with vb.net 2003 and passing a parameter to a crystal report 9 with a parameter field.  I have the parameter defined in crystal.  I am trying to pass the parameter this way.

oRpt.SetParameterValue("?pfAssetID", "AssessmentId")

The ?pfAssestID is in my crystal report and the AssessmentId field is from my vb program.

When I run the program I get invalid field name.

I have tried so many ideas from previous posts that I don't know what to do next.

Any ideas?


BTW:  I have applied all upgrades and patches to vb.net so that it is using 9.2 version in .net

I'm sure you know the error looks to be caused by your Parameter Name...

Did you try oRpt.SetParameterValue("{?pfAssetID}", "AssessmentId")?

Try trouble shooting...  Try to pull the CR's Parameter Names out of the collection and display them so you can see how CR names them.  This may help you determine how you have to pass them in.  (The Parameter Name that is.)

I corrected the setparametervalue and still get the same error.  How do I display the CR collection?

I have tried everything....  I still get invalid field.  I have checked my assessmentid and it has data in it.  So I think that it must be the parameter field...
I can see the CR in the watch.  Parameter field has a ?pfAssetID in it.
If I want to use a selectionformula in VB.  Do I need anything in the CR?

I have changed the program to use the selection function of CR Viewer and was able to make it work...
Thanks everyone
