Troubleshooting - How can I use wildcard (*) with Crystal Report and sp_report

Problem Description:

I am using the following SQL statement:

sp_report JobProfitabilityDetail show AmountActualCost_Title, AmountActualRevenue_Title, AmountDifferenceActual_Title, Text, Label, AmountActualCost, AmountActualRevenue, AmountDifferenceActual parameters DateMacro = 'All', SummarizeColumnsBy = 'TotalOnly' , EntityFilterFullNameWithChildren = '{?customer}'

I then create a customer parameter in the parameter list. The customer name is pretty long, so is there a way to search by using a wildcard, i.e., *50-126*, rather than having to enter:

Customer name. location.50-126.projectdescription??


Sorry, you can't use wildcards, and you need to use the full name path for a specific job:

sp_report JobProfitabilityDetail parameters DateMacro = 'All', EntityFilterFullNameWithChildren = 'Abercrombie, Kristy:Remodel Bathroom', SummarizeColumnsBy = 'TotalOnly'

If you wanted, for example, to compare all Remodel Bathroom (or 50-126) jobs for all customers, you would need to run the Job Profitability detail report off for each customer to a data file (like an append query in MS Access) and report from the data file instead.
