Report prompting for stored proc parameter twice

I have a report that connected to a stored proc that didn't initially require a parameter. I had to modify the sp so that it now requires a date input @report_date. Back at the crystal report, i've verified the database and was promped to enter a value for @report_date. A parameter named @report_date was also automatically generated under the 'Parameter Field' which I cannot remove but can rename. Now, whenever I refresh the data I get prompted for a @report_date value and then the report parameter dialog display where it prompts me again for the report Parameter Fields including @report_date(which I've since renamed).

Is there any way I can edit my report so that it doesn't prompt for that same stored proc parameter twice? It seems unnecessary since whatever I put in for @report_date the first time is overridden by the Parameter Field @report_date value.

Thank you,

    Hi Jesse,

    The parameter in Crystal was created because it's linked to the Stored Procedure so you can use it in the report. I'm pretty sure if you rename it back to it's original name you will not be prompted twice.

    Good luck,
