Single Date Parameter to run financial Quarterly Report in Crystal

I have 1 date parameter called {?Quarter} and it is defined as a date.  I want the user to enter this date (ie. 2008-05-01) and then want the report to pull all financial data from that entire quarter from a table field {table.invdate}.  Then summarize that data.  I've got the summarizing down, but my record selector does not seem to care about the date entered.  It is giving me all data for all quarters that year.

I do want this info, but I'd like the report to define the quarter and print that quarter's data first and then the 3 previous quarters.

Based on the above date entered example of 2008-05-01:

Quarter          Invoice Date          Invoice #          Sales         Tons
2nd                5-1-08                   123                   $2000        150
2nd                5-2-08                   246                   $1500        125
The above would be my details section (suppressed or not).

Group #1 Footer - Summarized

2nd               Invoice Date & # - suppressed     $3500        275    >>Year (2008)
1st                                                                      $4000        300     >>Year (2008)
4th                                                                      $3000        285     >>Year (2007)
3rd                                                                      $3000        290     >>Year (2007)

Any suggestions?

Thanks so much.
