Hi

I have created a crystal report, when running the report I want the parameter to default to a certain value instead of me having to choose the value

Does anyone know if this is possible

Many Thanx in advance

Regards

AQ

I actually also see the need to be able to have a default value on a dynamic list.

We need to write reports where the user can either:

1. Select a value from a parameter (ranges), in which case the report must filter on the parameter, or

2. Do not do any selection, in which case the report must not do any filtering. And for that I want to default the parameters to .e.g A to Z in the case of a range, or default it to "All" in the case of a straightforward selection.

I don't know if I am missing something in Crystal XI, but I do not see any other way in which I can prevent filtering if no parameters are chosen

No, having a default value for a dynamic list is not possible for good reason. A dynamic list is created on the fly so assuming that a default value would exist in the list is counter intuitive.
