Crystal Report Fields

I have designed a crystal report and connected to a database. When the report launches a sql statement runs on the calling form and generates a dataset in which to populate the report. See below.

I need to know how to create 3 fields or parameters within crystal so I can assign them to the dataset fields for population? The fields are called 'name' but the query renames the fields accordingly.

SELECT c.JobNo,c.Contract_Name,c.Address1,c.Address2,c.Address3,c.Town,c.County,c.PostCode,
s1.Name AS 'Contract Manager', s2.Name AS 'Surveyor', s3.Name as 'Site Manager',
s1.Mobile, s2.Mobile, s3.Mobile
FROM tbl_ContractDetails c LEFT OUTER JOIN tbl_Staff s1 ON c.ContractManagerID = s1.ID
LEFT OUTER JOIN tbl_Staff s2 ON c.SurveyorID = s2.ID
LEFT OUTER JOIN tbl_Staff s3 ON c.SiteManagerID = s3.ID
ORDER BY c.JobNo ASC

Create Procedure Sp_Whatever
(
 @name1 varchar(50),
@name2 varchar(50),
@name3 varchar(50)
)
AS
SELECT c.JobNo,c.Contract_Name,c.Address1,c.Address2,c.Address3,c.Town,c.County,c.PostCode,
s1.Name AS 'Contract Manager', s2.Name AS 'Surveyor', s3.Name as 'Site Manager',
s1.Mobile, s2.Mobile, s3.Mobile
FROM tbl_ContractDetails c LEFT OUTER JOIN tbl_Staff s1 ON c.ContractManagerID = s1.ID
LEFT OUTER JOIN tbl_Staff s2 ON c.SurveyorID = s2.ID
LEFT OUTER JOIN tbl_Staff s3 ON c.SiteManagerID = s3.ID
where s1.name = @name1
and s2.name = @name2
and s3.name = @name3
ORDER BY c.JobNo ASC

Base the crystal report on this procedure and it automatically pulls through the parameters to be populated.

Is the report built to run from a dataset?

Can you change the SQL to do the filtering rather than relying on the report?

How are you passing the recordset to the report?

Does the report show the expected data?
