How to stop parameter prompt in Access

Hi, I'm relatively new to database creation and am using MS Access 2013.

My database: Users fill out a form (Parameters_InvoiceRpt) to filter results to open a report (InvoiceHrgs) via a macro (MacroInvoiceRpt).  Report's record source is a query (Invoice Query).

When I run my report, I keep getting a Parameter question box asking for the value of "Courthouse".  Courthouse is a value found in the "Counties" table and is not used in this query, form, or report.  So why is Access prompting me for it and how do I get rid of this?

DB is uploaded to assist you.  Relevant titles are referenced above.

thanks!

Whenever you get a prompt, it means that Access can't figure out what your referring to.  Look for table and field name mis-spellings, not including it in the objects recordsource, etc.

In reports, often where there is a problem is in the sorting and grouping options where you refer to a field that is no longer available.

OrderBy and FilterBy are two other properties where something may be referred to but not available.

And check to make sure you have not actually defined a parameter for a query.  This can happen when you copy a query and then modify it.  If you defined a parameter for the query, it will show up as the first line in the SQL view of the query.

You did not post the specific instructions on how to see this issue in your database...

But I dug a little, and what Jim said is true...

You have set up a sort for "Courthouse",...in the report's Sorting and Grouping options...
Remove this sort and the prompt should go away...
