Is there a possibiliy of passing values from a regular table as a parameter value in crystal report command?

For example: table Ordertrack (with fields: originatorid, requestdate)

Sql Command:

Select * from EmployeeeLoan where EmployerID={?@originatorid} and LoanDate >={?@requestdate}.

We cant join these 2 tables together but using a sql command would be most efficient if the command can accept values from the Ordertrack table for its parameters.

In other words, you want to use one table as the source for the List of Values with a dynamic parameter.  The short answer is no.  Dynamic parameters aren't compatible with SQL Commands. That being said, if you capture the dynamic parameters in a container report, you can pass them to a subreport that uses the command.   So, build a blank report against one table and create dynamic parameters against that table.  Then, create a subreport based on the command and link the main report to the subreport based on the parameter values in the main to the parameter values that exist inside the command.
