Crystal Report Parameter Dialog box is missing parameter fields for only SOME users.

We have a Crystal report that is run from within a compiled UI.  (Code base is C#/.NET)  It works perfectly for 99% of our users in the field but we have a user for whom the dialog box comes up but ONE of the two sets of ranged parameter fields (string) does not show.  The date parameter fields do show.  This is a Windows 7 standalone environment.  Not even sure where to begin.  Could this be video-driver dependent?

Does he see the full parameter box?
In particular the OK button at the bottom?

Yes.  It is odd.  The full parameter box INCLUDING a parameter section for the 'broken' parameter.  Everything is there EXCEPT the dropdown windows themselves.  These parameters pull values from the SQL database.

The video driver is completely up to date.

Does that user have permissions for the table that supplies the list of values?

Do other users have a problem running the report from his computer (logged in as themselves)?

Can he run from another computer?

Yes. All permissions. Unfortunately this is a standalone environment so can't answer the second question. I will ask if there is a local security policy but I'm guessing not.

Actually I have an answer.  If the report is driven by a command query and not all tables specified are available, parameter boxes for the missing tables are also suppressed.  Interestingly, Crystal does not return an error message that there are tables it cannot access.
