Report parameter brings out Like-value not Exact-value.

In a Crystal report I'm developing, one of the parameter picks on "CustomerRating", the Customer Rating field in the database is of type VARCHAR, and the values stored looks something like this: AC1, AC2, C1, C2, and so forth, when I'm defining "C1" in my parameter selection, I'm getting both "AC1" and "C1".

Your thoughts.

"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.

mlmcc; it's been a while, hope all is well with you, this was an Array formula tied to a parameter, if at run time the parameter is left blank (in our case * only) the report brings out all transactions, otherwise the report brings out only the value defined in the parameter, the array code;

If "*" in {?CustomerRating} then true else {Command.CustomerRating} in {?CustomerRating} and true

After reading your question, I changed the array from the above to the below version;

If "*" in {?CustomerRating} then true else {Command.CustomerRating} = {?CustomerRating} and true

 & Voila.
