crystal reports parameter

crystal reports parameter


crystal reports xi, windows 7

I have a report that does only one thing - call a subreport.

the subreport is also very simple; it has two fields in the detail section based on a cascading parameter which also works fine; this is what I see when I run the host report - two fields in the detail section.

the problem is, that when I run the subreport by itself another parameter is requested but I can't figure out where it's used or what causes it to be there. It's not requested when I run the host report.

when I run the subreport, the cascading parameters work as they should and I know that they're requested because they're in the record select; but following the cascading parameter entry, this other parameter entry is requested but it's not in the record or group selection formulae and if I enter nothing it doesn't give me a message, it just goes on to the report which prints the two fields in the detail section.

I can't delete it because it says it's used in the report but I can't figure out where.

hoping you can help

This is the wrong forum for asking this question. Please repost to one of the BusinessObjects: Crystal Reports forums, such as here: http://www.tek-tips.com/threadminder.cfm?pid=149.

RE: crystal reports parameter

my apology, I certainly intended it to be in the Crystal Reports forum; shall report there and be more careful about searching for the forum in the future.
