I have a nested report built within a tabular report. Both share the
same retrieval arguments of type date array, and I'd like the users to
input parameters just once. The problem was I couldn't link the two
reports by the same arguments. The error message was "nest arguments
are incorrectly specified". Any idea how to make it work?

Thanks.

Tracy.

The nested report doesn't require a date array. Only the main report should
have the date array. The nested report column gets its value from the
actual column from the main report row, not from the argument itself.
