Issue with parameters when setting new Datasource location


I am updating a group of very old (Crystal Reports 9) reports to use a new Datasource location (a new server hosting the same database). However, when I make the change to the new data source, the report is demanding a value for the parameter (as seen in the screenshot below). I have tried leaving it blank, putting in a valid value, putting in the parameter name, everything. What happens is that the value I type here gets hard-coded into the report, and then the parameter passed in by the software running the report gets ignored.

I did not design and implement these reports, so this problem is kinda throwing me for a loop. I would greatly appreciate any help you can give. Thank you!
