In Crystal Reports XI.5, how do I set a Date Range Parameter?  I've done it before in XI, but I can't seem to get the proper screens to come up.  Any clues?

Are you referring to CR XI R2?

It should be the same as in CR XI R1.

Are you having trouble creating the parameter
Right Click PARAMETERS in the Field Explorer
Click NEW
Give it a name - DateRange
Choose the type as DATE
In the box at the bottom make it ALLOW RANGES - TRUE

This is the way that I was trying to get the parameter to work.  I think I was being too rushed and crashed the beastie.

Thanks for your help.
