Using Parameter Collection In ASP to expose Crystal Reports

I am using 5 files created by Business Objects to expose Crystal Reports to the browser so users will be able to print report.

Those files are AlwaysrequiredSteps.asp, MoreRequiredSteps.asp, SmartViewerActiveX.asp, cleanup.asp and the RDCrptserver11.

Then my own asp file that includes above files. I am using Crystal Reports 11 R2.

When I run these reports with my asp file *without* parameters, it works because it exposes .rpt files to browser with data and you can print them.

If, however, I attempt to run these reports with ParameterCollection, it exposes the crystal Reports viewer but no data, just blank screen.

Can someone please, please help me with a working version of files with parameters.

It will be really, really, really appreciated.

I will demo this on Monday and I am sweating like crazy trying to make this work.

Thanks so very much.

I am using my last available points but will buy more points and award them if need.

Many thanks again in advance.

Check the samples here.  There is at least one that has parameters

first mlmcc,

I must apologize for my tardiness in responding to your post.

I have been trying to find a way to use the code that you referenced.

It works fine *if* I hardcode the id value.

If, however, I reference the variable passed through querystring, I get following error:

Error Occurred Reading Records: Type mismatch

Do you by chance or experience know how to resolve?

Here is the offending lines (only 2 lines)


I want to use variable from querystring.

For instance:

id_pid = request.querystring("id_pid")
F_FID = request.querystring("F_FID")


Thanks
Session("oRpt").ParameterFields.GetItemByName("ID_PID").AddCurrentValue(CDbl("3311"))
Session("oRpt").ParameterFields.GetItemByNames("F_FID").AddCurrentValue(CDbl("567"))

Open in new window
