The specified value type is different to the current value type -ERROR

The specified value type is different to the current value type -ERROR

(OP)
Hi,
Using Crystal 2008 and Crystal enterprise XI-3


I have a report with 3 parameters and one of them is date range set as option. When auto scheduling; Report failed with the error message "The specified value type is different to the current value type" I am pass blank to the date range. I am sure that must be the cause for the error.

Anyone please suggest or advice how to get around?

Thanks,
RR

RE: The specified value type is different to the current value type -ERROR

When you created the prompt, did you set the "Optional Prompt" property to True? If not, try that. I think when you run the report you'll then have the option to check a box on the parameters screen that says to use a null value. Note that when you set it to a range, you have to enter BOTH values. If you want users to be able to enter just one value, you should create separate Start Date and End Date parameters.
