Multiple Default values - Crystal Report


is there a way to set multiple values as the default value in a crystal reports paramter?

If I enter multiple values separated by a semicolon displays it as one value.

    Hi Leo,

    You can only set one value as default. If you type in a comma separated string in the 'Default Values', then it is treated as a single value.

    What you can, however do is create a record selection formula that runs different checks before showing the data. Like this

    Note: This is assuming the prompt itself is set to allow multiple values.

    stringvar array arr;

    if ubound({?Prompt}) = 1 then


    if instr({?Prompt}[1],",") > 0 then


    arr := split({?Prompt}[1],",");

    {database_field} IN arr;



    {database_field} = {?Prompt}



    {database_field} IN {?Prompt}

    Hope this helps!
