Entering Parameter Values
When you run a report, parameter cards are used to filter the data and make your reports more meaningful. These parameter cards are added by the report author, who you can identify from the report description on the report card. For more information, see Types of Parameters. All parameters must have beside them, satisfying the parameter requirements, before you can view the report.
The action you take to enter a parameter value depends on both the type of operator and the type of field you are working with. For example, a field that contains numbers, combined with the Between operator, requires you to enter two values, one higher than the other. A field that contains a date and the Not in the last operator requires you to either type in or use the spin control to enter a number of days.
