Filtering Blanks


I am trying to filter a report based on a parameter that is sometimes blank. I can get it to filter with a single line of code but I can't get it to work with this code. Can someone point me in the right direction. What am I doing wrong?


StringVar Salesperson;

Salesperson = Trim({BAQReportParameter.Option09});

If Length({BAQReportParameter.Option09}) < 1 Then

{@SalesRep} Like "*"

Else {@SalesRep} = Salesperson


Option 9 is a Salesperson # that is sometimes blank. If there is no option number I would like it to display all records. Only one salesperson value is in the parameter at a time.

I have tried the If to be equal to "" as well but that behaves similarily.

This code returns only blank values for the {@SalesRep} even though 'Salesperson' is 8091.

Also, this formula is in the Record Selection.

Figured it out. I had to add a formula like this:

If Length(Trim({BAQReportParameter.Option09})) < 1 Then 1

Else If Length(Trim({BAQReportParameter.Option09})) > 1 AND {@SalesRep} = {BAQReportParameter.Option09} Then 1;

And then add a record select looking for this field to be 1.
