Business View Manager - Dynamic Data Connections


Dear Experts,

I am using CR 2008 - BOXI 3.1.

CR has a main + 2 sub reports. The report queries are 3 different Business Views on Business View Manager. Here are the issues:

1 In the data foundation, when I paste my sql code it dosent copy the entire code. It appears there is a character / file size limit. Is that true? Anyways to change it?

2 Since there are 3 views, I get the connection choice 3 times (1 for each view). Is there a way to pass the selection choice from one parameter to the other 2 & that way the user dosent have to select it 3 times?

3 I tried to avoid the sub reports by adding multiple connections in the main report & Crystal will not like it. Throws out this error:

"Business View connections cannot be mixed with other connections"

I do have 3 connections but then they are all Business View connections. Any workarounds?
