I am new to Infomaker (6.0) and am using a retrieval argument of type
StringArray in a SQL query. I would like to display the retrieval argument
(as entered by the user) on the report, but it appears that the retrieval
arguments of type array cannot be shown on the report. The report and the
query work just fine.

Will appreciate any help.

Thanks.
SP

Unfortunately, that's correct. You can't even do it in SQL itself.
Normally you can create a computed column in the Select statement with the
name of the argument (e.g. :my_arg (including the colon)), but it will fail
at runtime when using a string-array.
