Hello Expert.

I have created a parameter {?name} that is based on a numeric field, but it shows the description as a fullname.  When there is data to display based on the parameter, the fullname is displayed on the report.  Yet, if there are no records returned, the parameter selected does not show in the report.

Is there a way around this without having to hard code every single name with an if {?name} = 1 then "Joe Smith"...?
