Default values for static report parameters are not visible when scheduling
Crystal Reports 2008 Dev
Crystal Reports Server 2008
When I publish a report to the repository and then try to schedule that report, the default value that I have set for a static parameter in the report is not visible.
In the Parameters section of the Scheduling wizard this parameter is marked as [EMPTY]
However, when I View the report (right click and select View) from within Infoview, the parameter default value is visible
I have published in the following 3 ways:
File > Save As > Enterprise from withing Crystal Reports Dev
CMC > Folders > Add > Crystal Reports
The results are the same for each method of publishing.
To try to eliminate any DB issues etc i have created a report that is not attached to a datasource.
This test report has one Static parameter.
I have set 3 values for its list: Entry A, Entry B, Entry C
Entry X is set as the parameter Default Value
The parameter is placed in the details section of the report
When the report is Viewed it will prompt for parameter entry, with the default value present
When I try to schedule the report is will not have an entry for its parameter
It seems to me that the default values for parameters should be retained from report design through to report schedule, especially when the default values are retained from report design to report View
Is this a config problem that i have ?
Can anyone help me with this ?

I know that within an XI R2 Environment that to ensure my default parameters do not appear as 'empty', I need to refresh the report (and connect to the database) before using the publisher.
