I have built a report around a KEY ID or variable/parameter, the problem is I can't seem to get the report to use the KEY ID field from the initial data set in all of the other data sets to return the data I need.
I have created parameters in the hope that I could use this across the data sets within the report to pick up the data from the other data set tables...two of the parameters are visible via the parameter UI.
I basically want an id (the KEY ID) coming in through the initial data set to be used to return data from several other data sets...how can I do this?...making the KEY ID field a parameter doesn't appear to do what I want it to do, seemingly because although the KEY ID field is being captured it is not acting as a parameter across the report...I am new to BIRT am I missing something? hard coding the KEY ID into the data set Query replacing:[param:PBM_ID] allows the report to return the data I need - I need the parameter to work..any ideas? thanks
