Thanks to some Expert assistance I received earlier, I was able to make my reports work great.  Now, if possible, we'd like to be able to hide the variables being sent.  The problem is how to construct the syntax in Flex.

      private function callInventoryReportRequest(): void {
                  var url:String = "http://localhost/wmsrpts/rdPage.aspx";
                  var request:URLRequest = new URLRequest(url);
                  var variables:URLVariables = new URLVariables();
                  variables.input type='hidden';  //<<<< this will generate an error in Flex......
                  variables.rdReport="ItemMasterListing";
                  variables.coid=model.currentCompany;
                  variables.coname=model.companyName;  
                  request.data = variables;
                  navigateToURL(request);
            }

Thank You!!

The default method for a URLRequest is GET which appends the variables to the url, if you change it to POST it should solve your problem - you will of course have to check your server side script and make sure you are referencing the urls in the correct context

   
  private function callInventoryReportRequest(): void {
                  var url:String = "http://localhost/wmsrpts/rdPage.aspx";
                  var request:URLRequest = new URLRequest(url);
                  var variables:URLVariables = new URLVariables();
                  variables.rdReport="ItemMasterListing";
                  variables.coid=model.currentCompany;
                  variables.coname=model.companyName;  
                  request.data = variables;
                  request.method = URLRequestMethod.POST;
                  navigateToURL(request);
            }
