I have a BAQ that has mandatory parameters. How can I setup Options fields in a BAQ Report to flow to those parameters?
Or do I have to remove the Parameters from the BAQ, an strictly rely on the Options fields?
Also, is there a way to have the defaults for the options feild be dynamic? In particular, setting an option field for FiscalYear and FiscalPeriod to the current year and month (actual calendar, not fiscal calendar)?
Maybe an inner sub-query of the FiscalPer table, that returns one record where the current date is in between the to find the FiscalPer.StartDate and FiscalPer.EndDate. Then link that sub-query to your main query, wherever FP and FY are.
I’ve seen code on this site, to require BAQR option values before printing
i was thinking of trying a similar approach, but to populate the OPTION value outright, if null
What’s Your Opinion? is that reasonable?
