Are you writing some code yourself? If so, I guess you try to access a member of a collection that doesn't exist. Ie member 0 if the index starts at 1 or something like that.
Or are you using the Software as it comes out of the box? In that case describe please what steps provoke that error

The error means you are referencing a parameter that doesnt exist - either its the wrong index (number) or the name you are using to reference the param is incorrect

Shay79 -

You're on track, it's definitely a parameter issue and this is the first time I've really worked with Crystal.  My boss pretty much dumped the work on me and I feel that I've been set up for failure, sigh.

I just don't know which parameter is not working right.  Where can I go from here?

How can I get the codes? I can only see "Design/Preview" tabs.

Are you running the reports form an application or from the designer?

If from the designer then what are the parameters?  what data types?

My boss helped me out, I was passing unneccessary parameters and didn't have parameters that I was supposed to include.  It's all fixed now.

Should I reward points to anyone?

llputney - In looking at the comments I don't see any that directly say or suggest that.  That was the gist of my comment to list the parameters but I was thinking more on the lines of passing a non-date to a date parameter.
