I would like to have a Parameter within a Crystal report that will only call other reports and their parameters...

The embedded reports would not be linked to each other...I thought i had done this before but I can't remember how.

Create parameters on the report level, add subreports and link the subreports' parameters to the report parameters by riggt clicking the subreport and select "Link parameters" menu

Either I am not understanding what you are saying or you are not understanding what I am saying...

The parameters on the Main Report..need to link to the Name of the sub reports...

Example..

1. Report1.rpt
2. Report2.rpt

After clicking on the 1.   The Report1.rpt launches and then the prompts for that report are presented..

I don't believe you could do it automatically but you could create hyperlinks using formulas for the report names.  The formulas would convert the parameter into the appropriate report path/url and then when clicked it would open.

To extend mlmcc idea, you can suppress each of the subreports based on the value of the parameter. So if the parameter is saying report1 you will suppress all other subreports and just report 1 will be visible.

Simply place unlinked On-Demand subreports on the main report layout.
