Parameter Prompting order on Crystal Reports Viewer

I am using the CrystalReportViewer to display reports from within a J2EE application. We create the reports external to the development environment using Crystal Reports 11.

All seems to work well except for a problem in the way that run-time parameters are displayed in the viewer panel. The problem is that the parameter order that we define in the report, and which is displayed as expected when the report is run in Crystal Reports itself, is not reflected on the viewer.

For example, our paramaters for a given report may be in this order:

From Date

To Date

Minimum Value

But when the report is executed through the viewer on a jsp page, we may see those same three parameters prompted like this:

To Date

Minimum Value

From Date

This is just an example of course, but in a complex report, with many associatted parameters, this somewhat random reordering makes the parameter list very difficult to comprehend.

Can anyone offer a method by which we can keep the display order consistent?

Best regards,
