How to suppress Crystal Reports 7 Parameter Prompt
Posted on 2007-08-10
We're supporting a client using a VB6 application and an Access 97 database to produce Crystal Reports version 7 (Standard Edition). They require some urgent changes, including a new report. The report requires the VB app to pass a parameter to display on the page header. So far so good and no problems doing any of this. However, Crystal keeps displaying the parameter prompt prior to showing the report and we simply cannot find a way of suppressing it.
Here's how we're passing the parameter to be displayed in a Crystal parameter field named 'SelectionCriteria'
ParameterFields(0) = "SelectionCriteria;" & PValue$ & ";False"
Changing False to True also results in the parameter prompt display appearing.
Surely there must be a way of suppress this annoying popup.
Any help greatly appreciated.
