Prompts - Create a decision prompt and based upon the response provided give other prompts

I will try to be clear on what I would like to do.  Is it possible to have Crystal Reports provide one prompt and based on the response of that prompt, ask the user for other prompts (or at least) have the cursor go to the correct prompt.  For now, what is happening, no matter how I answer, the first (deciding prompt), ithe cursor skips the next prompt and goes to the third prompt in the list of prompts.  The following is at the record level:

uppercase ({?Decision Prompt})<>'YES'
{EVAL_DATA.UPDATED_ON} >= {@FirstDate}
{EVAL_DATA.UPDATED_ON} <= {@SecondDate}


if uppercase ({?Decision Prompt})='YES'


{?Class Number}= {EVAL_DATA.NO_SCH}

The decision prompt is Yes or No

If the reply is Yes
I would like the cursor to go to the class number prompt space and ignore the other spaces.

If the reply is No
I would like the cursor to go to the firstdate prompt space, then go to the seconddate prompt space, then go to the UserID prompt space and ignore the prompt for class number.

Or, should I create the one prompt (expecting answer yes or no) and direct it to a sub report?  What can I do please?  Thank you.

I don't know of a way to use the Crystal prompting and get what you want.

You are basically looking for a cascading prompt but it isn't based on the same field.

The only way I can think to do this is to write your own application to accept parameter values and prompt as you want it to.

This is not a bad grade.  This is the best answers based on the information given.  This is just the functionality of of Crystal XI at this time.  Would not know how to write my own application to accept parameters.  I don't think that it's fair to ask how to do this, but I'm sure that this response will be just the right hint for a person who is familiar with APIs.
