I have a table with a field that have some empty string entry in “”, it is not Null  it is empty string ””.
I need to change it for user that empty string “”  value  to string “Blank Entry” and populate parameter based on new value in the field.
I did this using a command object and it was not complicated. It worked fine.
However.
Crystal Report, need to be uploaded in Raiser’s Edge application.
Command object as source for parameter can not be used in  Raiser’s Edge application, so I was planning to create subreport in main report with one field and use that field as source for Parameter in main report.

I am using  Crystal Report CR XI R2 ver.
 Is it possible to use subreport field as source for main report parameter and how set up it.
What I have to do?

In a word no.

Subreports are the last thing evaluated in a report so the values are not available when the report is run.
