One Parameter for Multiple Fields -

Good afternoon!

I am using the select expert to select records for a report.  Technically there are 4 user-defined selection options BUT, I can narrow this down if I can use the same parameter for multiple fields.

For example:

Solicitor Name and Proposal Solicitor Name (both separate fields) must be the same, instead of asking the user twice to enter the name, is there a way to have it ask once and then apply that answer to the other parameter?  (eg. enter solicitor name and automatically use that entry for the Proposal Solicitor Name?).

Any assistance with this would be very much appreciated!

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Just create seperate rules using the select expert and set them both to equal to ?Param. If you want to add this to the selection formula manually it would be something like

{table.solicitor_name} = {?Param} and
{table.proposal_solicitor_name} = {?Param}
