Hi

I want to be able to add prompts to add text into a report (when report is refreshed).

So the user would be aske to enter

Pack Number
Description
Tally

and they then show on the report just as text.

I assume I do this through parameters but cant figure out how to do it, any ideas please

Thanks

RE: prompt for text vlues then add it into report

Just make a prompt with set values. Then drop that prompt into the report where you you need it.
