Passing Parameters via Action Go To URL

I am trying to pass a parameter from one report to another. I will be passing a YYYYMM from one report to another. In the first report, you choose your 'beginPeriod', in the format YYYYMM and view report. In the report is a link to a second report. In the second report, there is also a beginPeriod. When the 2nd report is accessed, it should automatically run using the passed YYYYMM. AND there should be a parameter window with the YYYYMM filled in, but you should have the option to change it and run again.

report 1

The passed value is definitely one of the available values in the dropdown on the 2nd report. Is there a way to get the 2nd report to default to the passed value and execute?
