Crystal Report SubReports using Stored Procedures and Passing Same Parameters

I have a Crystal Report which will be using 4 different data sets all retrieved from stored procedures.  Each procedure uses the same parameter value(@FromDate, @ToDate).  Yet, when I load the main report it asks for me to enter a parameter for all procedures.  Is there a way to make the report only ask 1 time for the parameter for each and every subreport?  See ScreenShots below...  Thanks in advance!  

P.S. - If there is a better or more effecient way to make this work I am open for suggestions.  Subreports were the only solution that I saw as being ideal for this client request.

I figured it out.  Pretty straightforward, just overlooked association.  The way to do this is to have Parameters on the Main Report.  Right-Click on the Subreports and select to Change Links...  Select the Parameter from your Main Report move it to the right side of the dialog.  Then in the bottom left dropdownlist select the associated Parameter which exists in your Subreport.  Do this for each Subreport and you may have one request for all duplicate parameters.  The tricky part is when using a date.  My Stored Procedures parameters were "DateTime" because this is the only date format that SQL Server 2005 accepts.  Hence, when creating the parameters in your Main Report you must make sure that the datatype matches.  "Date" will not work.  You must use "DateTime".  

CASE CLOSED!  haha...
