Finding a Used Object

Using Crystal XI

In a report I created a couple of weeks ago I created and used a parameter.  Now I realize I didn't really need it and decided to remove it.  I deleted it off the report and took it's reference from the Record Selection Formula.  However Crystal still has it checked meaning it's used somewhere (in a formula, since I'm positive it's not on the report) and won't let me delete it until I remove all references to it.

So, how does one find an object that Crystal Reports says is being used?

Review all formulae,  check conditional formatting / suppression formulae as well.  I don't think there's a way of finding without looking manually.  Hope I'm wrong, but don't think I am.

Try this

Right click the parameter in the field explorer
Click FIND IN FORMULAS

Another way is to export the report to REPORT DEFINITION FORMAT
Open the file in WordPad and search for it.

There is no option "FIND IN FORMULAS" to click.

You must have an earlier version.

Can you export to Report Definition Format?

That did it.  I was able to track it down through the definition file.

Thanks.
