Crystal Reports 2011 Parameters

I have created a number of reports and when the parameters load the values in the parameters are cut off on the right side of the parameters box.  It seems as if I've missed a wrapping button or a horizontal slider.  Can anyone assist with what Im missing?  Thanks in advance

Which release of Crystal XI?

Have applied any service packs?

Is this from the Crystal designer or are you uisng an application with the Crystal parameter screen?

What's your screen resolution?  Are you trying to view reports at a low resolution?

How long are the parameter values, on average?

Apparently only the 11 registered.

Various resolutions. Lowest being 1024 x 768. Normally it's 1366 x 768.

I will get a screen shot of an example param.

No, you can't modify the width of that parameter window (without creating your own custom coded parameter window), nor is there a slider.   Why is the parameter so long?  It looks like it should actually contain more cascading parameter values that have been concatenated into one long string.  Can you separate them into separate levels? Such as:

Root Location
Campus
Facility
Building
...

That would be more in line with how the parameters are intended to be used.

Thanks for the input.  

The locations are broken down into 3 levels, Top Level, "everything in between" and Site.  The "everything in between" varies from customer to customer and have had a few customers recently have these extended levels due to mutilple sections of the physical locations.  Is there any way I could get the param to wrap?  I think the only other solution we have considered is modifying every report to look at a view that will truncate the location bredcrumb to the 2 loweste levels of "everything in between".  Was trying to avoid that if possible.

As stated you can't modify the behavior of the default Crystal parameter screen.
