i have a problem with crystal report in VS 2008.
I can't display result of parameter' value.
when i run program, it must me enter parameter'value into textbox instead of show result. Then i click Input button, occur a error below:
Server Error in '/' Application.

But other website it is Ok.
My code:
           rptDoc.SetParameterValue("@tuan1", "chào các bạn")
           rptViewer.ReportSource = rptDoc

So according to your code, it could only be a couple of things. Put a breakpoint in your method and see which one is null. Then make it not null and your error condition will go away.

Object reference not set to an instance of an object

This error happens when you try to use a property or call a method of an object that is null. More details: here[^]

A simple use of Visual studio DEBUGGER can tell you the object because of which it is happening. Just look at the stack trace and put a debugger on that line. Check the objects of that line and see if any one is null and you are trying to use that objects property. Handle the same.

For now, looks like some issue while setting datasource.

Have a look at these articles on how to pass parameter to crystal report:
