Post subject: Unable to delete parameter from the Report

Hi,

I am developing report in Crystal Report Enterprise XI R2. I was using Static Parameter in the report.

Now I want to get rid of it. I am trying to delete the parameter in the Field Explorer But I don't see DELETE option, whereas I do see Delete option for Other parameters.

It is static parameter. I have commented the all FORMULAS where this parameter was used but still no luck.

Any idea on this ?

Regards,
Diablog

Hi Diablog,
You'll need to delete all references to it in the formulas, commenting out doesn't work, or at least it never has for me.
Use the find in formulas to go through every location and then remove the references; sometimes even after this when the find option is bringing back a blank, you may still not be able to delete.
In this case, save to another copy of the report, close Crystal and reopen the report and you should be able to remove it.
Andy.

Also be sure to check for references to the parameter in any suppression formulas. Places like the section expert can be hiding references to the parameter.
