Is there a way to have the content of a retrieval argument provided by
the client to be included in an InfoMaker report? When I try to include
the argument in my report header, it is blank.

Normally this isn't a problem if you have an equality between the
retrieval argument and a database column since you can just use the
column in the report. However, I have a Transaction Date retrieval
argument with a less-than-or-equal-to (<=) operator and so I want to
include the retrieval argument in the header. I can select it in my
report painter and include it in the header band, but it is blank.

TIA,
Scott

This definitely should work. It's a bug, I think fixed in 5.0.03 or
.04.
I think child reports were a problem too.

Create a computed field on the report. You will be able to then select the
retrieval argument.
