I am not sure how to ask this but here goes. I am trying to pass a series of parameter values from one products filtering through to anothers. From Tableau to Crystal Reports via URL query string parameters.Line one shows what works if the values are manually entered. However with Tableaus Actions feature. You can edit the URL and manually put those in. I am wondering
This query string shows all US states
1. http://localhost/Ripplestone/CRViewer.aspx?DocID=22&User=administrator&Key=c1dda10c&Params=USA,ALL

This query string produces nothing but shows the naming convention of the parameters in both the Crystal Report and Tableau.
2. http://localhost/Ripplestone/CRViewer.aspx?DocID=22&User=administrator&Key=c1dda10c&Params=<Parameters.Country>,<Parameters.Region>

I am totally clueless as to how to pass a parameter from one filtered action in Tableau through to a URL that displays an embedded Crystal Report. If I have left out key information or botched this question let me know. Thank you.
