Using IM5 I have developed a composite report using both tabular and
crosstab reports.
Each of these select data using the same retrieval arguments and where I
wish to enter the same value.

How can I set it up so that when running the composite report then the
retrieval argument values only need to be entered once?

Regards

You can create retrieval arguments at the composite level and map your
nested report retrieval arguments to those.
