Hi,

I am trying to create a running parameter that will utilise the "is in period"

When a user runs the report I want them to be able select from a drop down menu the options listed in the picture attached.

Can anyone explain how to set the parameter up?

Thanks

You would need to type each value into a parameter and handle the results from this paramter in the record selection formula i.e.

If {?Param} = 'Last7Days' Then
  {table.date} >= Today - 7 and {table.date} <= Today
Else If {?Param} = 'MonthToDate' Then
  {table.date} > Today - Day(Today) and {table.date} <= Today
Else If .........etc.

actually the selection formula can use the relative function

If {?Param} = 'Last7Days' Then
  {table.date} In Last7days
Else If {?Param} = 'MonthToDate' Then
  {table.date} In MonthToDate
Else If .........etc.
