How do I show a range parameter in my report? by AyJayEL
Posted: 8 Jun 01 (Edited 8 Sep 03)

If you have a range paramater it won't display if you drag it into the report. This is how you get it to display for the different types.

Create a formula thus;- (For versions 9 and above I am told you need to substitute Cstr for ToText, I don't use 9 so can't vouch for it!)

For a Date Range

"From: " + ToText (Minimum({?DateRange}))+"To: " + ToText(Maximum({?DateRange}))

Where ?DateRange is your parameter.

For a number range
"From: " + ToText (Minimum({?NumberRange}),0,"")+"To: "
+ ToText(Maximum({?NumberRange}),0,"")

Where ?NumberRange is your parameter

For a String Range
"From: " + Minimum({?StringRange})+
"To: " + Maximum({?StringRange})

Where ?StringRange is your parameter

Then put the formula in your report.
