My report accepts a customer ID parameter.

I need to use that parameter to get an invoice number value from my SQL Server database, to display the invoice number in my report.

An obvious choice would be a SQL Expression, but I don't think you can use parameters in those.

So how can I do this?

You can use the parameter in your record selection formula and this will automatically filter out the SQL data. Since you're registered to read the ebooks online, you can click this link for more info: http://members.crystalreportsbook.com/books/?p=88

You can find out more about my books at Amazon.com or reading the Crystal Reports eBooks online.
