Report Builder 2016 videos | Report Builder Pt 10.2 - Query Parameters and Filters

Posted by Andrew Gould on 13 February 2021

This video explains how to create query parameters in Report Builder to filter the results of a dataset. You'll learn how to add query parameters in the Query Designer and by writing the SQL code. You'll see how a query parameter is linked to a report parameter and how to modify these parameters without breaking the link. You'll also learn how to display the parameter values in a page header so that they can be viewed when the report is exported and how to display a "no rows" message when the parameter values don't return any results.
