Problem with passing multiple discrete values to a parameter

I am struggling to get the passing of multiple discrete values to a parameter field to work. Single discrete and single ranged parameters are working fine, but despite trying all examples I can find (and there's not many) I can't get it to work. Can anyone see what is going wrong in my code below, please?

This is running against CR Server 2013 and it is lines 36-45 that are the issue. The code steps through the parameters found in the report and looks for URL/Form values with matching names. The multiple value capable fields are supplied with comma delimited lists of strings in the URL/Form values.

Private Sub DatabaseLogon_unmanagedRAS()
  Dim mySampleReportPath As String = Request("rpt__rpt")
  Dim path As Object = CType(mySampleReportPath, String)
  Dim rptFile As String = path.Substring(8)
  Dim databaseUserName As String = Request("rpt__un")
  Dim databasePassword As String = Request("rpt__pw")

  Dim rcd As New ReportClientDocumentClass()
  Dim pfld As String
  Dim pfldName As String       
  Dim crMainReportParameterFields As Fields
  Dim crField As Field
  Dim arrKeys() As String
  Dim newVal As ParameterDiscreteValue
  Dim crDiscreteVal As CrystalDecisions.Shared.ParameterDiscreteValue

   rcd.ReportAppServer = "localhost:6420"
   rcd.Open(rptFile, 0)
   rcd.DatabaseController.logon(databaseUserName, databasePassword)
   crMainReportParameterFields = rcd.DataDefinition.ParameterFields

   For Each crField In crMainReportParameterFields
    pfldName = crField.Name.ToString
     Select Case crField.ValueRangeKind
      'Ranged parameter.
      Case 0
       Dim crRangeVal As ParameterFieldRangeValue = New ParameterFieldRangeValue()
       pfld = Request(pfldName)
       arrKeys = pfld.Split("|")
       crRangeVal.BeginValue = arrKeys(0)
       crRangeVal.EndValue = arrKeys(1)
       crRangeVal.LowerBoundType = RangeBoundType.BoundInclusive
       crRangeVal.UpperBoundType = RangeBoundType.BoundInclusive
       rcd.DataDefController.ParameterFieldController.SetCurrentValue("", pfldName, crRangeVal)
      'Discrete parameter.
      Case 1
       If crField.AllowMultiValue Then ' multiple values
        Dim crParameterValues As ParameterValues = New ParameterValues()
        pfld = Request(pfldName)
        arrKeys = pfld.Split(",")
        For Each multiVal As String In arrKeys
          crDiscreteVal = New CrystalDecisions.Shared.ParameterDiscreteValue()
          crDiscreteVal.value = multiVal.toString()
       Else ' single value
        crDiscreteVal = New CrystalDecisions.Shared.ParameterDiscreteValue()
        crDiscreteVal.Value = Request(pfldName)
        rcd.DataDefController.ParameterFieldController.SetCurrentValue("", pfldName, crDiscreteVal)
       End If
     End Select
    Catch ex As Exception
     Response.Write("<b><u>The report viewer has encountered an error:</u></b><br><br>")
     Response.Write("Stack Trace: " & vbCrLf & ex.StackTrace)
      'do cleanup
    End Try

   myCrystalReportViewer.ReportSource = rcd
   myCrystalReportViewer.HasRefreshButton = true
    End Sub
