I believe the command is on the report menu:  Report -> Compile Report.  It may be on the File -> Save As menu also - I can't remember for sure.

Once you've compiled it you can simply send the file to the user and they can dbl-click to view the report.

I believe they stopped including the compiled reporting functionality by 8.5.

Here is a link to download the file to allow you to compile reports: http://support.businessobjects.com/communityCS/FilesAndUpdates/scr8_distr_expert.exe.asp

You're right - it was actually dropped from 8.0: http://support.businessobjects.com/library/kbase/articles/c2006523.asp

Use the link bdreed gave to add the compiled report functionality.

Be forewarned though if you upgrade Crystal you will lose this function completely.  Version 9+ doesn't support it at all: http://support.businessobjects.com/library/kbase/articles/c2011739.asp

Use the minimum and maximum functions in a formula:

minimum({?Date_Range_Param})

maximum({?Date_Range_Param})

You can create seperate formulas for each or combine them into one like this:

"Date Range: " & ToText(minimum({?Date_Range_Param}),"MM/dd/yyyy") & " to " & ToText(maximum({?Date_Range_Param}),"MM/dd/yyyy")
