Hi!

I have set up a retrieval argument to allow the user to input a range of
dates. It works fine in restricting the data. Now I need to print both
arguments on the header of the report. I cannot find out in the manaul
how to do this.

Thanks, Jim

I believe thay your retrieval arguments are available in the
computed-field painter. Create a computed field, press MORE to bring
up the expression painter, and you should see your arguments in the
column list.

Hi Jim,

Add a computed field. Give the field a name and then click in expression
text box area, then click more. A list of function and column names will
show. Scroll the columns list to fine the computed field name. i. g.
startdateReq, enddateReq, textvaluesArray, serialnoLike, ...
