Multiple Fields for One Parameter

Posted on 2008-11-20

I have three fields coming from the database.

1. Secondary Solicitor
2. Primary Solicitor
3. Volunteer Solicitor

I created one parameter and the user will choose either one in the drop down.

How can I combine all three fields in the select expert?

    I don't really understand the Q.

    What are entering in the parameter? a field name? a solicitor name?

    Are you trying to enter one solicitor name and select records where that name is in any of the 3 fields?

    So that't a Yes to my Q:
    "Are you trying to enter one solicitor name and select records where that name is in any of the 3 fields?"

    In that case you set up a selection rule which is something like :

    if {table.primarysolicitor} = {?Param}
    or {table.secondarysolicitor} = {?Param}
    or {table.volunteersolicitor} = {?Param} then
