I have a report with a Prompt Build Filter Expression {Ask:A;B;C} and I would like to use the result of this prompt in the Output layout but I do not find how to do it ?
I can do the same directly in the layout with a Dialog field but without list.
Thanks for yours answers

Unfortunately this isn't really possible.

Some of my clients choose date ranges they want to see on the report, but it can't do it.

If the entry is part of the first line of the report, it can display, but not otherwise.

Using Dialogs instead of the Filter prompts is the way forward here. You have to then modify how some of the information is presented in the report (with Section Filters) and formulae need amending too but it is perfectly possible.

There are some compromises to using Dialogs (such as not being able to define a list of options for the User to select from and the macros to default dates don't work) but it depends on your priority.

Email steve@hilltopsit.co.uk and I'll send you a report which demonstrates some of the techniques required using the Dialog route.

Hope this helps,

If you are using dates; if you double-click the dialog's text box, it should pop-up with the calendar.
