if you have created 2 parameters i.e. fromdate and todate then crystal report will ask you to provide values for fromdate and todate parameters but my recomendation is you should get values by having your own parameter input page. if you have succeded to get parameter values from user  then by using record selection formula editor you can write as

{yourtable.datefield} in {?fromdate} to {?Todate}

it wil only print those records which will fall in user provided date range.

{?fromdate} and {?Todate} is a parameter that you create

on you select expert
click new >> choose your date field and on the first drop down column choose
is between
On the right drop down, you should be able to choose the {?fromdate} (first option)
on the {?Todate} as second options

or
{yourtable.datefield} in {?fromdate} to {?Todate} paste this on your select expert
