How do Parmeter Strings work in Crystal Reports?

I have a report that I need to update but I am not sure how the parameters work. When I hoover over the parameter it has string behind the name.

What do you mean how do they work?

Are you updating the parameters?
If not you should be able to simply update the report then run as usual

This report has 9 parameters and I only need 2 the site name and the date. The date can have a range. See below this is how it looks. I cannot find where the "Site Name, Date & to" is coming in at.

Site Name:004 Beverly Hills Acad.  Date range: 20/05/14 to 02/11/14.
It might be easiest if you could post the report (.RPT) file.

 It's possible that you're looking at a text field that had the parameters added to it, so the one report field is actually composed of different parts, like "Site Name:", then one parameter, then "Date range:", then the minimum value from the date parameter, and so on.

 What are you trying to change?  Are you actually trying to change a parameter in some way (eg. to a different data type), or are you trying to change something in that line that you posted (eg. change "Site Name:" to "Site:"), or something else?
