SQL Server 2005 Report Parameters Settings

Greetings,

When setting values in SQL Server 2005 Reporting parameter setting, how do you go about setting a multiple values where one of the values is NULL. For example:


select emp_name,title,emp_id
from emp
where emp_id=@emp_id



In this example I want to have the luxury to select all values, including the values that are null in the emp_id field or select only the null values in the emp_id field. When setting this up in SQL Server 2005 Reporting parameter section, it allows you to set each value separately but I want to know what is the proper syntax to set a value to NULL in SQL Server 2005 Reporting parameter section?

Could you not change your SQL statement to convert the NULL before passing the data to RS?

e.g.

select emp_name,title,COALESCE(Cast(emp_id AS VARCHAR),'No Value')
from emp
where COALESCE(CAST(emp_id AS VARCHAR),'No Value')=@emp_id

or

select emp_name,title,COALESCE(emp_id,0)
from emp
where COALESCE(emp_id,0)=@emp_id
