Crystal Reports 10 - Suppress statement Help

I have a report with one detail band. In this detail band, I have multiple fields. This detail band needs to pull based on values entered into one specific field ...

Field Name = [Last Visit Date]

Three values that could be in this field.
'less than 2'
'2 or more'
'No detected Visit'

If the end user selects 'less than 2' only, I want the visits marked in my sql with 'less than 2' to print and suppress the '2 or more' and 'No detected Visit'.

If the end user selects '2 or more' only, I want the visits marked in my sql with '2 or more' to print and suppress the 'less than 2' and 'No detected Visit'.

Ok.. why do you have two parameters.  What make them different?  

You could create one parameter that has 3 different values.

Typically I would set up a stored procedure that you can submit a parameter to in order to accomplish this.  When the user starts the report have them select the appropriate value from a list.

I have it set in SQL and in the third party application, the user has two checkboxs to pick from ....

__ Over 2 years
__ Under 2 years

When they select one, the records not meeting this condition need to be suppressed.

simply filter them off. You already have the parameter, and you said the column exists in the database as less than 2, no detected visit, or 2 or more.  

So go to Report> Selection Formula>Records
{?parameter} = {columnindatabase}

In my sql, I have set up filters as such:

(?VISITSOVER.VALUE.U? = 0 AND ('2YRStatus' <> '2 or more')) OR
(?VISITSOVER.VALUE.U? = 1)
)
AND
(?VISITSUNDER.VALUE.U? = 0 AND '2YRStatus' <> 'less than 2')) OR
(?VISITSUNDER.VALUE.U? = 1)
)

In Crystal, I created 2 Parameters .... VISITSOVER and VISITSUNDER.

I am confused on what you mean wykabryan.

Went the route of working out more in SQL, but your help was needed. Thanks
