Hi!

Is there a way to pass parameters to a report. For example, a report
that is only to print a report for the last name that I pass to the
report. I am using version 5 of IM.

Thanks, Jim

If you mean running an Infomaker executable from the command line and
passing it the report name and parameters: no. I use a PB application that
does this. But it of course requires hardcoding certain connection
parameters (Oracle in my case), so you can't use it just like that. if you
have PB, you're free to have it and modify it appropiately.
