1209331 - Range parameters not supported in the web component server


A report containing a range parameter field works correctly in the Crystal Report Designer.

However, calling this report via a browser's 'URL' line gives the following results:

  • The parameter window that appears is incomplete. It contains a text box only for one parameter instead of two.
  • The prompting text is incorrect.
  • When a parameter is given, the resulting report only returns results in which the data is true for that parameter only. There is no range returned in the resulting report.


This functionality is available in the release of Crystal Enterprise 8.

A workaround for Crystal Reports version 8 and earlier is to use two different parameter fields, one for the start of range, and one for the end of range. Then the ability to call the report with both of these parameters from the URL line is enabled.
