Hello,
Please find attached the screen shot of the tables involved.
The NtoNlist table is connected to physican and activefacilitylist using left join on the phnpi and the facid.
The report requires such that when I select a facility or multiple facilities as the facility parameter it should populate a cascading prompt which has only physicians who are in the nTonList.
Please help.
Not sure how to create it as a cascading parameters or any other work around.

You choose the fields you want the user tosee and select from.  The linking fields don't come into it.

What do you mean?

{FacilityField} = {?FacilityParameter} AND {DoctorField} = {?DoctorParameter}

Change those to match the names of the fields and parameters

You can use 2 parameters but then they won't be limited to related values
