Hello,

I have a Crystal Report that has just one parameter.  I wan't to call it from another program.  Is there a way to tell Crystal Reports Viewer 2008 to open a certain report with a certain parameter with a shell command or command prompt?

No.  However you can add a viewer to your application and open a report there.

Another way would be to write a viewing application that can be called from a shell or command line and have it open the report.

You might look at the viewing programs available here.  Some do supprt the command line and some are not overly exspensive
