    Question Web Report doesn't prompt for parameters

    Hello Everyone,

    Iím working on developing a Web Database for my company. One of the reports Iíve created uses a query with parameters. If I run the report from the Access client, Iím prompted to enter the parameters and the report runs with no problems. However, if I run the same report from the web interface, I never receive a prompt for the parameters. The report runs, but with no results.

    I've been searching for several days to find a solution to something that seems so simple. I did read a note on this site : ďYou cannot use a form to collect query parameters in a web database.Ē

    Does anyone have a solution or workaround? Iíve seen people on other forums saying you can, but none with specifics on how to accomplish the task.

    Thank you for any help.

    Instead of prompts, maybe the parameters should refer to controls on form where values are input. I have never built a web database so not sure if that is possible. I never use parameter prompts in any database just because can't validate user entry.
