Crystal Reports 9 selection formula error

I am currently dealing with a baffling issue with Crystal 9. I have an asp page passing parameters to my report and everything looks fine with that. The url string is exactly how it is supposed to look. I created 2 string parameters to match the additional drop down and text box that I added to the report. Both of the Crystal created parameters are strings. When I add both of the parameters to the crystal reports record selection formula I get a prompt error for the sub_line1 field asking me for a value when it is already submitted. Here is my record selection formula:

{ldr_acct_bal_join_mhc_account_vw_1.ldr_entity_id} ="MHC" and
{MHC_GROUPING.GROUP_ID} = {?group_id} and
{ldr_acct_bal_join_mhc_account_vw_1.PMF_LINE} in {?lineitem} and
{ldr_acct_bal_join_mhc_account_vw_1.TYPE} = "Statistical" and
(({ldr_acct_bal_join_mhc_account_vw_1.processing_yr} = tonumber({?year})-1
 AND {ldr_acct_bal_join_mhc_account_vw_1.amt_class_type}= "ACTUAL")
OR ({ldr_acct_bal_join_mhc_account_vw_1.processing_yr} =tonumber({?year})
 AND {ldr_acct_bal_join_mhc_account_vw_1.amt_class_type} in["ACTUAL", "BUDGET", "FORECAST"])) and

IF {?sub_line1} <> "ALL" THEN
{ldr_acct_bal_join_mhc_account_vw_1.SUB_LINE_1} IN {?sub_line1} and

IF NOT ISNULL({?AcctNumber}) THEN
{ldr_acct_bal_join_mhc_account_vw_1.ACCOUNT_ID} = {?AcctNumber}



Any ideas on what could be causing this error would be greatly appreciated. Let me also add that the data is coming from a view created in sql 2005.

Not sure if thsi is your problem but i woudl try changing the last part of your record selection formula to

and (
IF {?sub_line1} <> "ALL" THEN
{ldr_acct_bal_join_mhc_account_vw_1.SUB_LINE_1} IN {?sub_line1}
Else
True)

and (
IF NOT ISNULL({?AcctNumber}) THEN
{ldr_acct_bal_join_mhc_account_vw_1.ACCOUNT_ID} = {?AcctNumber}
Else
True)

i would change the last part to:
AND
( {?sub_line1} = "ALL" OR
{ldr_acct_bal_join_mhc_account_vw_1.SUB_LINE_1} IN {?sub_line1})

AND
( ISNULL({?AcctNumber}) OR
{ldr_acct_bal_join_mhc_account_vw_1.ACCOUNT_ID} = {?AcctNumber})

Does teh report run ok when you run it using teh CR designer ?

If so then I would suggest it's your application code thats at fault

I'm still getting the same error. Let me also add that even though i see the values for sub_line1 in the url as a string and even though the report parameter is defined as a string, when i try to add sub_line1 to this parameter display formula:

join({?sub_line1},", ") + chr(13) +
join({?MHCRSI},", ") + chr(13) +
join({?region},", ") + chr(13) +
join({?state},", ") + chr(13) +
join({?asset_type},", ") + chr(13) +
join({?core},", ") + chr(13) +
join({?profile},", ") + chr(13) +
join({?market},", ")

it gives me the error that a string array is required here.Confusing.....

Here is the url that is passing the parameters to the report

http://mhccrystal/reportstest/khari/mhc_line_item_analysis_stat.rpt?user0=sis**&password0=b**&user1=sis**&password1=b**&promptex0=%221%22&promptex1=%222011%22&promptex2=[%22New Sales Volume%22-%22New Sales Volume%22]&promptex3=%22All%22&promptex4=%22All%22&promptex5=%22All%22&promptex6=%22All%22&promptex7=%22All%22&promptex8=%22All%22&promptex9=%22All%22&promptex10=200632&promptex11=%22None%22&promptex12=S&promptex14=%22Gas Income%22&promptex15=%22%22&promptex16=&init=actx

with promptex14 being sub_line1......

Can Sub_Line1 have multiple values?

Try it without the join.

good calls on that one mlmcc and GJ...but my original issue still is plaguing me. The report works when I type the values in the designer. The url looks to me exactly how it should passing the string values, so I'm at a loss in terms of identifying the real issue here.

There is no promptex13 in the list.

Decided to start over with the asp page as the error was probably generated from there.
