Notes on the Parameter Wizard
NOTE: Some reports will not present this selection. This screen appears only when you are opening a Pre-Defined report created in a user account other than your own.
The user may also inhibit this screen from appearing regardless of who created the report by Navigating to TOOLS/OPTIONS/ GENERAL tab and un-checking the ‘Ask for confirmation’.
NOTE: The Parameter wizard defines the selection criteria for producing the results set. These parameters may be modified and new parameters can be defined. Users learn to modify and create parameters in Introduction to Discoverer.
NOTE: The report might allow multiple values or a single value for a given report.
NOTE: The description box shows the format masks for the values. Parameters must be keyed in conformity with the format (i.e. case sensitivity, punctuation such as quotation marks surrounding characters, number of digits in year, etc.).
6. Select [OK].
7. You may open more than one Pre-Defined Report at a time, by opening a new browser window.
