Explain correlation between crystal reports xi parameter and database field
Posted on 2008-06-20
I finally have my crystal reports set up to read my sql server database. I finally have my VB code set up to allow me to change a parameter value in my report.
Could someone explain to me how to set up my parameter now in Crystal so the parameter is directly linked to a specific field in my report.
For example, I have a table full of client names. Each client name is identified by a unique id number. In my report now, I get a listing of all of my clients. But let's say I wanted to set up a parameter, that I can change the value of this in my VB program, to only show say a client whose unqiue id is equal to X.
I'm really confused on the tie in between a specific field on my report and how the parameter ties into that.
If someone could explain that, that would be a huge help!
