Simulated Cascading Parameters in Crystal Reports 10

I know that Crystal Reports XI offers cascading parameters.  The company I am working
for is using Crystal Reports 10, and there are no plans to migrate to XI.  Is there any
way of simulating  cascading parameters in CR 10?  For example, once I prompt
user for "Department", I would then like to prompt user for ONLY those "Teachers" in that
specific "Department".   ( These have got to be parameters. )

Thanks for your help.

I don't believe that there is any way to do this within CR10.
The only solution for pre-XI versions of CR is to create a 'front-end' application (using VB, say) to collect and  pass the parameters using code.

At least one of the 3rd-party Crystal reports Viewers listed at http://www.kenhamady.com/bookmarks.html provides dynamic & cascading parameter functionality even for versions prior to XI.

I don't think that's an option since this company would prefer to avoid 3rd-party add-ons, but
thanks for the references.
