HI,
I need to display the user input parameters(nearly 4 parameters) in crystal report header by creating formulae in crystal reports. I am using crystal reports 2008 against BEx query as datasource.

I would really appreciate your quick reply.
Thanks!

You would have to create a formula to convert the value to a description or create a table in the database for this.  There is no way to retrieve the parameter value description directly.

I you are referring to the description that is displayed with the parameter prompt then I agree.

Is the field with the description included in the report?
