Multiple String Parameter Join Function for array; include parameter description with default value

Multiple String Parameter Join Function for array; include parameter description with default value

Multiple String Parameter Join Function for array; include parameter description with default value

(OP)
Crystal Reports 10
MS SQL Server 2008 R2

This works when presenting array results for parameter default values:

Join ( {?YourCharPrompt} , ', ' )

Is it possible to also include the parameter descriptions along with the default values?

E.g.:
Default Value / Description
A / Andes
B / Bolivia
C / Columbia

Show array result as "A - Andes, B - Bolivia, C - Columbia".

Thank you.

RE: Multiple String Parameter Join Function for array; include parameter description with default value

Unfortunately there is currently no automatic way to tap into the descriptions. Supposedly this is one of the new features of CR 2016 that is due out shortly. This article describes some of the the workarounds available in the current versions of CR.

Thank you, Ken. Good to know this might be possible in CR 2016.
