What do you mean by the parameter desciption?

Generally the description is another database field and can be displayed just by including it in the field selection and putting it on the report.

If you are providing all the parameter values and descriptions, I don't think you can display the description.

If you don't hve too many values and values aren't added, you could create a formula to test the value then display the apropriate value

If {?param} = 1 then
    "Desc1"
Else If {?param} = 2 then
    "Desc2"
Else etc

sorry mlmcc,
If I have a parameter which is dynamic example facilityid and facilityname.
Facilityid is the value and facname is the description. So how to display the facname in the report.The data is coming from a subreport.
Thanks

You should be able to add facility name to the query and then just use the field.  if you need to pass the value to or from a subreport you can use a shared variable.
