I have a parameter in a where statement that works fine when I am using query designer in SSRS 2008.  But when I go back out to the report section, I get a pop up screen that says define query paramaters and my parameter that I used  has been stripped from the code or all of the fields in the dataset are gone.  The parm I'm having an issue with is the @Days.  If I substitute 90 for the @Days in query designer, it works in both the query designer and the SSRS report...  I'm not quite sure how to fix this...  Can anybody help?

WHERE  (FACT_GiftCommitment.BalanceAmount = 0) AND (FACT_GiftCommitment.LastPaymentDate BETWEEN @BeginDate AND @EndDate) AND (DATEADD(dd, - @Days, FACT_GiftCommitment.LastInstallmentDate) > FACT_GiftCommitment.LastPaymentDate)

Yes that popup was asking for the values of the parameters.  In the past when I saw that pop up I thought there was an error and would click out of it and go back to try and fix the program.  I'd never tried entering the values again.  Wow - that actually solved the problem.  Learned a good lesson today.
