A Parameter Field prompts a user for a specific value, multiple values, or a range of values each time the report is run or when report data is refreshed. A report can contain one or more Parameter Fields that can be used as selection criteria, formula data, report text, conditional formatting, sorting, etc. By using Parameter Fields, one report can be modified quickly as reporting needs change.
