How do I display crystal reports properly when the save data with report is checked

We are having a problem with Crystal reports 2013, for any reports that have the Save Data with Report checked.

Through the API we are passing in parameter values into the report within our application which correctly connects to the database without issue. Everything works fine as long as the report does NOT have the Save Data with Report checked.

If the report has the Save Data With Report checked, then in 100% of the cases it will prompt the user to provide the parameter values that have already been passed in by our application. As soon as we get them to send us the actual report design, and we open it up and uncheck the Save Data with Report and send it back to them, everything works fine.

We have tried everything we can find in the API, and nothing seems to get around this bug.

Some of our clients design their own reports and attach them to our application's report menu, so we have no control over whether they remember to uncheck that checkbox, and some of our old legacy reports may have been designed with that setting checked as well. It's something that wasn't an issue until the 2013 version was released it seems.

    What SDK are you using?

    See this WIKI for the latest:

    https://wiki.scn.sap.com/wiki/display/BOBJ/Crystal+Reports%2C+Developer+for+Visual+Studio+Downloads

    On that page is a Parameter test app, see if that works for you, you will need to edit the app.
