How to change Crystal Reports parameter/prompt layout in LaunchPad?


Hi Guys,

i´ve noticed something strange. We i open a Crystal Report 2013 in Designer and launch the report, i get some really great formated parameter prompts. The huge advantage from this great parameters is, you don´t have to insert a value in every parameter. Blank works like a *.

Now when i publish this report to BO and i access it from launchpad, i get a weired / ugly / old style prompt / parameter screen.

Attached you will find a screenshot of both, on the left the ugly ones and on the right the better ones.

Can some tell me, how do i change the paramater/prompts in the launchpad to the good layout. It´s really annoying to put a value in every parameters screen just to launch the crystal report.

We are using:

SAP BusinessObjects BI Platform Servers 4.1 SP03

SAP NetWeaver 7.40 SP5


Kindly regards
