Web page, SQL, and Crystal???

Web page, SQL, and Crystal???

(OP)
New to Crystal, so please forgive me.

I want to be able to pass paramters from a web page to a crystal report (that pulls info from MS-SQL).

Example:  A teacher goes to a web page and selects a student's name from a list. A report on the student's grade is shown.

I know that Crystal can process SQL stored procedures and parameters, but how do I pass them from a web page. If anyone has any real examples, that would be great!!!

Thanks in advance!

RE: Web page, SQL, and Crystal???

Elvis98,

The URL call from the web page can be used to pass selection cryteria for you.

http://<;host>/<path>/report.rpt?sf={fieldname}=studentname

if the context of the report has a parameter, then note that they are addressed as value0= then value1= and so on.

RE: Web page, SQL, and Crystal???

Instead of directly modifying the selection filter (as suggested by Thomas) you could also create your report with parameters and pass that values from the URL:

http://<;host>/<path>/report.rpt?param0=studentname
