Parameter description name in report header
I can get a parameter to display in the report header; however, what I cannot seem to do is to get it to display the descriptive name for that parameter. When I created the parameter and inserted the field, I chose another field for the description or name, which works as desired for the input prompt. What I want is for the report header to display the description or name, not the value.
To be more specific, the parameter value is the accounting period. The key value for the accounting period is a number (e.g., 18). The Name field for the accounting period is 2008-6, which is June 2008. The report header will display the number 18, but I cannot figure out how to get the description, 2008-6. If I simply add that field in the header, it displays the first available record, not the description for that accounting period because there is nothing to connect it to the parameter value.
