Reproducing the Issue

  1. On an SAP System, create an Infoset with at least one parameter.
  2. Set a default value for the parameter of the SAP Info Set.
  3. In Crystal Reports, create a report off the SAP Info Set.
  4. When refreshing the report, it prompts for the parameter(s), but does not display the parameter default value.


  • Crystal Reports can report off InfoSets, but the InfoSet parameter default value is not supported. This is why it does not display a default parameter for the report based off an InfoSet.


  • To display the default parameter values, add the default values in the Crystal Reports designer by completing these steps:
    1. In Crystal Reports designer, open the report based off the SAP InfoSet.
    2. Right-click the parameter name in the 'Field Explorer'.
    3. Click 'Edit'. The 'Edit Parameter Field' dialog box appears.
    4. Click the 'Default Values' button. The 'Set Default Values' dialog box appears.
    5. Add the required default values and then click the 'OK' button.
    6. Save the report.
