select non-query from the start date parameter properties and put this expression in the textbox:

=DateAdd("d", -6, Parameters!Enddate.Value)

where parameters!Enddate.Value is the end date parameter (replace 'Enddate' with the name of your parameter)

You must also order your parameters so the the end date is requested first else this wont work.

Hi,

I have one more doubt,

Will the date automatically change when, I change the end date after running the report 1st time.

When you select the date parameter as End Date that can be used to show all data from last 7 days.

Ex: In the expression if you select Today() it will be “14th March 2011”

So for between condition you have pass the same parameter “BETWEEN Today()-6 AND Today()”
It will be taken as “08th March 2011” AND “14th March 2011”

It depends what control you are using in the Report
