Printing Parameters in Crystal Report, source Vantage

Good Afternoon Experts!

I am having a problem with the reports I create through Vantage. If anyone is familiar with this program, basically you create first a BAQ, then you design a BAQ report, then you create a Crystal Report based on the XML generated in Vantage. Two of the tables that appear on Crystal are: BAQReportResult and BAQReportParameter.

I'm creating a report, and I'm using the Crystal "Select Expert" to filter my data. When my logic doesn't find any records, the fields from the BADReportParameter are not being printed on my report. This parameters include the report Title and the User's Input parameters

I'd really appreciate if you can help to overcome this issue.

What is the BadReportParameter?

Returning no records is a valid result.  I suspect BadReportParameter means you entered an invalid value

Thanks for your answer mimcc. I had a Typo on my question instead of BADReportParameter is BAQReportParameter, and this refer to one of the tables that Vantage generates in the XML.

I'm linking BAQReportParameter --> BAQReportResult with a Left Outer Join

I'm filtering records from the BAQReportResult table, but still, if the selection doesn't return any records, the information from BAQReportParameter should be displayed because is a left Outer Join.

As soon as you filter based on the jopined table, Crystal changes the join to an INNER JOIN so it doesn't have to deal with the NULLs.
