I want to use a single Crystal report (.rpt) file for two actual reports, changing only the title and the data. I've got the data working, but I can't seem to get the title part right. I tried to follow this
tutorial, but when I do my report just disappears (whether I set the parameter or not). I created a "Report Title" special field and dragged it to my page header. Then I brought up the formula editor on the report title display string and clicked on my
title parameter. So the formula ends up being
I'm sure I'm probably just making a rookie mistake here. Can anyone provide any advice as to what I'm doing wrong?

you can pass a parameter simply

I don't think the passing of the parameter is really the problem. It's how to use the parameter value to update the report. I this case I want to know how to make the parameter value be used as the title of the report.

Aproach is depending on logic you are appying

This seems to work to use a parameter for record selection, but I'm interested in using a parameter to change the text in the report itself...in this case the title of the report. So, I need a way for a parameter to be assigned to a text object or maybe
the "report title" special field, but I can't seem to find a way to make the assignment in the formula editor.
Does anyone have any ideas?

Looks like you do it by adding the special field "Report Title" to the report and then doing the following in the code:
MyReport report = new MyReport();
report.SummaryInfo.ReportTitle = "My Title";
