Show us the query that returns this error.

If you have a column named Name, they you may have to use square brackets [Name] surrounding it, as Name is a property of almost everything.

It turns out that the reason why the Input structure was not working is because I had a blank field being passed into the Reporting Server and as I learned and found when I did research, you cannot pass a blank field into the Report Server.  So after I figured out to only pass 6 records of parameters into the Report Server as opposed to 7 which included a blank field, the problem was resolved.
