Crystal Report is not prompting for parameters

Hello, I have a report I developed in Crystal Reports XI.  When I run the report, it does not prompt for parameters even though 3 parameters do exist.  I have unchecked the option to save data w/ report.  Any help would be appreciated.

How are you running the report?

Forgive the obvious, but are you actually using those parameters in the report somewhere, like in a record selection formula or displaying them on the report?  If you don't actually use a parameter, CR doesn't ask you to enter a value for it.

Hi, running in crystal reports, doesn't prompt.  Publishing to Crystal Reports Server.  Doesn't prompt their either.

Yes, I am using them in a record selection formula.  I am not displaying them on the report itself though.

Does the report show data?

If they're used in the record selection formula, then I don't know why CR isn't prompting you for them.  Just to be clear, they don't have to be displayed on the report.  They just need to be used somewhere, and you're using them in the record selection.  Displaying them on the report is just another way that you could use them.

 If all else fails, you could try deleting the parameters and recreating them.
