I'm using this SQL Command at the Database Command line level and I would like to have the ability in CR XI to input/change the DATE within the Crystal Report...instead of having to go to the Command Line here and change it. I "think" I need to use a parameter but not sure how.

How can I have the DATE of 06-30-2006 00:00:00 changed to where I use the SELECT CRITERIA in Crystal to change the date for the report run...THANKS
Mike



declare @HistDate datetime
set @HistDate = '06-30-2006 00:00:00'  --<<<--- Type in the Historical Unit DATE that you wish to use HERE
SELECT *
FROM (
select ( dbo.gethistoricalunit(dbo.bkcyacct.[file number],@HistDate)) as [HistUnit],*
from dbo.bkcyacct
where [system closed date] is null
or [system closed date] > @HistDate
and [file open date] <= @HistDate
 )A

WHERE A.[HistUnit] is  not null
--and [file number] not like 'Z%'
and [file number] not like '99%'
and [file number] not like '1001%'

declare @HistDate datetime                  --<<<--- don't need
set @HistDate = '06-30-2006 00:00:00'  --<<<--- don't need

SELECT *
FROM (
select ( dbo.gethistoricalunit(dbo.bkcyacct.[file number],{?HistDate})) as [HistUnit],*
from dbo.bkcyacct
where [system closed date] is null
or [system closed date] > {?HistDate}
and [file open date] <= {?HistDate}
 )A


In the above, "HistDate" is your date parameter in Crystal.  Format your SQL as shown above to compare to the date parameter.
