Crystal Report Date Range Parameters

Hello, I have a crystal report with a transaction date range. When I run the report a date range is asked.
How do I get the selected ‘date range’ to appear at the top of the report?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You can use formulas.  If the parameter only allows a single range, you can use Minimum ({?your date range parameter}) and Maximum ({?your date range parameter}) to display the range values.  You could put those functions in separate formulas, or convert the dates to strings and combine them in a single formula.  For example:

"Date Range: " + CStr (Minimum ({?your date range parameter}), "MM/dd/yyyy") + " to " +
 CStr (Maximum ({?your date range parameter}), "MM/dd/yyyy")

 If you'd like the date in a different format, look up CStr in the CR Help for info on the different format strings.
