I want to change the nulls to 'All' instead of showing NULL in the parameter.  I have 'Allow NULL values option selected'

This is my dataset for a parameter I am using for the parameters
--this data set shows null and works fine when rpt is exec
select distinct  Terr from dimcustomer
order by Terr
--this does not work, it thinks 'All' is not null
select distinct  isnull(Terr,'All') as Terr from dimcustomer
order by Terr

Any suggestions

Do you have blank values in Terr instead of NULL? try this.
select distinct  isnull(nullif(ltrim(rtrim(Terr)),''),'All') as Terr 
  from dimcustomer 
 order by Terr
