Passing parameter value

Passing parameter value

Passing parameter value

I am creating a 7 day calendar (CR 8.5) getting a parameter field from the user as the starting day.  I want to display the dates on the Page Header but they only display on the first page all the rest are balnk.

this is what I have done at the page header

Global dateVar StartDate:={?StartDate};

RE: Passing parameter value

If the parameter is a discrete date, you should be able to display the parameter directly in the page header, along with other column headings which use the parameter, e.g.:

{?date}   {@date1}   {@date2} //where each successive date is a formula like:  {?date}+1

Are you sure you have this displayed in the page header and not the report header?


RE: Passing parameter value

Yeap that was my first thought but it is on the page hearder..  I even have a logo which displays on every page on the same section.

RE: Passing parameter value

Did you check for a conditional field suppression on the parameter field?  What other fields do you have in the page header? Any subreports that might overlap the field? Could your logo or some other field be behaving differently on different pages because of a "can grow" option?  What happens if you make the page header large and add more space between fields?  This is odd behavior, just trying to brainstorm here...

RE: Passing parameter value

oddly enough, if I place just the parameter field
?startdate  it does display on all the pages.  It is when I use the parameter field on the formulas.  The formulas only displays on the first page.

RE: Passing parameter value

Got it...   I had a field suppresion based on a no longer existing condition.

Thanks for the help....
