Field name not known error running Oracle report using crystal viewer

thread768-493919: Crystal Report Viewer "This field name is not known."

Did anyone ever have any luck determining what caused the 'field name not known' error message?  My error message is:
Exception in formula '{@Record_Selection}' at '{PROJECT_TEXT.PROJECT_ID}': This field name is not known

Which makes no sense to me.  I've checked all the report selection formulas and replaced the {PROJECT_TEXT.PROJECT_ID} or the applicable field with the same field taken from the field tree in the formula editor.  I've made the parameter selections uppercase.  The same report runs fine in a SQL application and in Crystal designer.

I'm using a java application, Orace 10g, Crystal XI and if any additional information is needed I'll be happy to provide it.
