    Crystal Reports Help

    I've got a crystal report that I'm trying to use in a program I'm writing.

    The problem I have relates to the use of Parameters. I have a String based field in a database that I want to filter against certain strings I enter as parameters.

    If I use a single value parameter, it works a treat

    Code:
    {?Name} in {misc.Name}
    But if I want to use {?Name} as a multi value parameter, it needs to used as an array ({?Name}[i]).

    I'm not used to this syntax (some type of screwed up javascript), and every method I've tried to loop through and do anything seems to either throw an error or not work properly.

    It doesnt seem to have a debugger either so that doesnt help!

    Any suggestions?

    (Crystal Reports 9)

    Forget it. You spend ages battling with something, then you make a tiny alteration and it works:

    Code:
    Local numberVar x;
    Local booleanVar b := false;
    for x := 1 to Count({?Name}) do 
    (
        if {?Name}[x] in {misc.Name} then b:= true;
    );
    b
    Still a pretty wierd syntax IMHO.
