I'm building a labor edit report in Crystal (8.5) that I plan on
compiling and distributing to our shop supervisors.



I'd like to use a parameter field to let them choose the date range, but
I can't get it to work (I know I could use a discrete parameter and have
the supervisor choose every date they would like to see but that would
get annoying if they wanted a month's worth of data).



This is what I'm starting with - I know it is incorrect (that's why I'm
here).



{JobOper.StartDate} in Date {?Start Date} to Date {?Start Date}



Do I need to use two distinct parameter fields?



Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!



Thanks,

I really could use either method, but i was hoping to use a single
range parameter. Part of the reason is that it would be a little
easier for the end user. The other part of the reason is that I want
to figure it out because its bothering me.

Ok, final question.

My other parameter field is PartNum. I have it set as "Discrete" and
to allow multiple selections.

I'd like to display which PartNums are on the report in the Header.
If I put the ?PartNum field in the header it will only show the first
PartNum choosen. How do I display PartNum's 1,2,3,4...n?

Thanks!
I have to think about that one. :)
