1214946 - How to pass a parameter from a main report to a subreport

Symptom

A main report and its subreport each have a parameter that requires the same value. When the report is previewed and the Enter Parameter Values dialog box appears, two parameters are required, one for the main report and one for the subreport.

How can the parameter value from the main report be passed to the subreport to avoid being prompted twice for the same parameter?

Resolution

Refer to the Linking a Subreport on a Parameter Value section on page 13 of the Linked and Unlinked Subreports article.
