An expression that will not pass a parameter to a report

Hello,

I have created a pie chart, and in the actions of pie i defined "Go to report"
In the expression,I go to a differnet reports by one of my parameters.

I want that one of the parameters I am passing will not pass to one of the report.
Is there any expression that i can write in one of the parameters that will not pass the parameter?

An alternative option you might consider is to publish your report to a folder, hide it using security permissions, and present to the users two "linked reports" based on the hidden one. You could then show/hide different combinations of parameters on each, e.g. one can show the start and end date parameters, while in the other the users can select "Entire Program" or "Last Quarter" (no need for the "Specified Dates" option). To the users they will appear to be 2 different reports, but you will only need to maintain one in the background.

You could always pass a value eg. -1 into the report instead of the real value.
In the report you could set fields to hidden (that you don't want shown under these special circumstances) based on a condition (eg. PassedInParameterWhichHasADifferentNameToThisMadeUpOne = -1)

My comment #35068691 indicates a method to achieve what the asker requires.  Namely always pass in a value BUT for a particular value the parameter field on the report is hidden so the user doesn't see that dummy value.
