    Unanswered: Text Box Prompt on Report

    We have purchase orders that we are pulling from a MSSQL backend, and the report works fine.

    However, in the subreport, the users would like to be prompted to enter up to 8 lines of text to be inserted into the report when they execute the report.

    I am not sure if this is possible, or how to go about it. I tried using a parameter field, but there is simply not enough space for them to enter in info, and they have to enter multiple lines. I would like to make this as user friendly as possible.

    We are using Crystal Reports 7, and may be upgrading to Crystal 11 by the end of the year.

    Thank you in advance.

    Had a similar problem in crystal 7. I had our programers create a GUI for the parameters for my report and then pass the values selected by the user in the GUI to formula in my report.

    So when looking at the formula in crystal it would just have '' as its value and then would be poplutated as text when the GUI passed the parameters.

    Hope this helps
