Adhoc Parameter Display

Adhoc Parameter Display

I have a report that uses an adhoc parameter.  I want to display the value of the parameter in the report heading.

I created a data row variable named "CompletionDateRange" and set its value like this:

CompletionDateRange = v_ProjectList_ActualProjectComp

v_ProjectList_ActualProjectComp is the name of the parameter I see when I open the parameters editor by selecting the Tools...Parameters... menu.

What I see in the CompletionDateRange text control in the report heading is the value of the first CompletionDate from the database record and not the date range parameter I entered (e.g., 01/01/2007-12/31/2007).

How can I get the adhoc parameter value to display in the report heading?

RE: Adhoc Parameter Display

forget the data row variable named "CompletionDateRange" and create a text box whose VALUEXP =  v_ProjectList_ActualProjectComp
