List of Values not Showing up (Crystal 2008)-BOE XI 3.1

I am using Crystal 2008. I created a parameter 'X' and it uses a Prompt Group(PG_1) built in Business View Manager. And the Data Connection's(DC_1) property 'Runtime Prompt Mode' is set to 'Always Prompt'.

Now when I run my report runs in the Crystal Reports 2008, it never asks me for the database user credentials for DC_1. And it asks me for database credentials when I try to schedule the report by giving the parameter values from the INFOVIEW. After enting the database details, it gives me the List of values.

Now that I didn't want to be asked for the credentials everytime, I set the Data Connection's(DC_1) property 'Runtime Prompt Mode' is set to 'Never Prompt'. After I do this, whenever I run the report it doesn't ask me for the database details, which is good. But the issue is now after the property change it does not show the list of values in only in INFOVIEW when prompted. It only shows a text box against the prompt just to enter the value.

Is there any way to show the LOVs after the change in the property for 'Runtime Prompt Mode' to 'Never Prompt'?

Thanks in Advance.

In order to get LOV without prompt you need to specify both user and password.

Sorry, press enter before type all answer...

I had same issue before and in order to get LOV without prompt you need to enter user name and password to appropriate boxes in DC and specify Never Prompt, what you already did.
