I am connecting to a Pervaive 10 DB through VS 2008 (dataset)  All is working fine, but when I have more than 1 filter, all I can see is "?" for the paramater prompt.  Is there a way to Identify is like SQL server or Access like "@Param1" <-  does not work BTW.

Nope. PSQL uses the "?" for it's parameter identifier.  
Attached is a code sample using C# and the PSQL ADO.NET provider.

using System;
using Pervasive.Data.SqlClient;
namespace PsqlParamTest
	class PsqlParamTest
		static void Main(string[] args)
				PsqlConnection con = new PsqlConnection("ServerDSN=demodata;ServerName=localhost");
				PsqlCommand cmd = new PsqlCommand("CREATE TABLE PsqlParamDate ( f1 char(10), f2 LongVarChar)",con);
				int iRes = 0;
				iRes = cmd.ExecuteNonQuery();
				Console.WriteLine("Records affected: {0}",iRes);
				PsqlCommand cmd1 = new PsqlCommand("INSERT INTO lvctest (f1,f2) values ( ?,?)",con);
				PsqlParameter param1 = new PsqlParameter("@param1", PsqlDbType.Char);
				param1.Value = "1234";
				PsqlParameter param2 = new PsqlParameter("@param2", PsqlDbType.LongVarChar);
				string sTemp = "";
				sTemp = "Test Value";
				param2.Value = sTemp; 
				iRes = cmd1.ExecuteNonQuery();
				Console.WriteLine("Records affected: {0}",iRes);
			catch (Exception ex)
