In my report i have stored date data "March 2005" as string type. I need to create parameter to filter out the report based on Year.

For example if users enters 2004 then the report should filter out by all 2004 data or i can have user input start date and end date and filter out the repor based on those dates.

I know how to create parameter in crystal and apply that to the field. The problem is that i have my date data type is define as string and i don't know to work around that situation.

Any suggestion ?

Thanks In Advance
