hi there,
I have a sub that it needs to take a list of parameters and pass it to the a report.
my problems occurs when i have to pass the parameters and get the values out from the array is there a way you experts can help me?

here is my code:

Public Shared Sub GenerateReport(ByVal strRptName As String, ByVal ParamArray param() As String)

        Dim crReportDocument As ReportDocument
        Dim pFieldDefs As ParameterFieldDefinitions
        Dim mypFieldDef As ParameterFieldDefinition
        Dim pVal As ParameterValues = New ParameterValues
        Dim pDiscreteVal As ParameterDiscreteValue = New ParameterDiscreteValue

            crReportDocument = New ReportDocument
            crReportDocument.Load("C:\Reports\" & strRptName)
            crReportDocument.SetDatabaseLogon("park", "park")
            pFieldDefs = crReportDocument.DataDefinition.ParameterFields

            Dim objectlist As String
            For Each objectlist In param

                pDiscreteVal.Value = objectlist.Substring(0)
                mypFieldDef = pFieldDefs(objectlist)

            ' crReportDocument.ExportToDisk(ExportFormatType.RichText, strExportPath)
            'crReportDocument.PrintToPrinter(1, True, 1, 1)

        Catch ex As Exception
        End Try
    End Sub

the only thing i know is that this part is not working and it is setup wrong:
For Each objectlist In param

                pDiscreteVal.Value = objectlist.Substring(0)
                mypFieldDef = pFieldDefs(objectlist)

how can i change in order to pass my values to the report?
