multiple parameter in crystal reports(CAse in SQL)

Hi All,

I am using add command in crystal report


Query is

select a.text_value, s.user_sampleid, from naiv_sample_attributes a inner join nai_samples s

on s.sample_id=a.sample_id

inner join nai_results r on s.sample_id=r.sample_id

inner join nai_submissions ns on


where'Date Received'


to_date(a.text_value,'DD-MON-yyyy HH24:mi:ss') between

to_date('01-APR-2013 08:53:22','DD-MON-yyyy HH24:mi:ss')

and to_date('30-APR-2013 08:53:25','DD-MON-yyyy HH24:mi:ss')

and r.Status in {&Status}

now Status parameter contains 3 values 'COMPLETE' , 'SUSPECT' and COMPLETE/ SUSPECT so if i select COMPLETE/ SUSPECT it should use COMPLETE and if I select SUSPECT it should take SUSPECT ,i need it to write in SQL only (i know we can do this through formula).How to write this by using case? if so please explain me

    hi Venkatesh,

    you shouldn't require a case statement for this as you're using a prompt / parameter to define the status in the where clause.

    you should have created a parameter inside the command as opposed to using an on-report parameter. once you have that command parameter you change the where clause last line to

    and r.Status = '{?Status}' or '{?Status}' = 'COMPLETE/SUSPECT'

    i'm assuming that if the end user selects complete/suspect that you want to show both complete & suspect...if that's not correct, please let me know what should be returned.
