Passing report parameters using Global32.lss and Crystal Reports

Using Global32.lss I am successfully able to execute Crystal Reports from a view action button. Now I need to pass report parameters from within the API to the Crystal Reports at runtime. Having read up lots, I find that 'PEValueInfo' (the function I need in order to acheive my goal) is for some reason missing from Global32.lss. Do you have any advice to help me achieve passing parameters such as a date at runtime of a Crystal Report?

I haven't programmed Crystal Reports, and I'm not familiar with the LSS file you're talking about, but I did find this documentation from Seagate; refer to page 352-353: http://dynalivery.com/customersupport/crystaldecisions/CR7TechrefVOL2.pdf. This shows how to declare the PEValueInfo structure (not function), which you then can apparently pass as a parameter to various functions.

If you're trying to declare outside functions and data structures to call from LotusScript, it often helps to search for documentation on calling those functions from Visual Basic, on which the LotusScript language is based.
