Omiting parameters for stored procs

Post Author: lihaze

CA Forum: Data Connectivity and SQL

Hi - I hope that this is a straightforward one.. I have a number of params in a shared stored proc (they do default to NULL, but the app that I am using to call Crystal firstly cannot pass in a NULL value(!!!), and also always asks for the same no. of params that are in the creport. So, I am using Crystal 8.5, I dont even want these params to be requested. How can I make sure that they arent requested in Crystal?thanks

    to actually pass a null value using crystal reports you will have to use crystal 2008as this isn't what you are after the alternative would be to in your report edit the parameter from the stored procedureput in a value, set the default value to that value and change allow custom value to falsethis will push the default value to the parameter every single time the report is run so you will not be prompted for the parameter value anymore
