Stored procedure parameters with Crystal reports

Aloha, I have a bunch of SP is SQL server that I want to use in crystal reports. What is the command in CR to do this? I can run sp's with no parameters but not sure how to call
exec sp_test ........ when requiring a parameter to be entered. I would like the parameters to pop up like a date range. Mahalo Brew

Crystal will handle it for you if you wish.

Create a new report
Add the data source
  Choose the database method for your database
   Navigate to the SP
   Double click it to add it to the report

For parameters you can have Crystal provide its default prompt page for them or you could build your own

mlmcc is right. After that you need to integrate that report to application then create parameter fields in report and assign it to sps' parameter.
