Selecting Multiple Parameters in Reports

A check box column exists with the parameter lists. Selecting a check box will add the item to the parameter; deselecting will remove it. Since the parameter value is based on the selected check boxes, filtering does not remove the values. Additional features of the parameter selection interface follow.


Boxes do not have to be directly checked for each row being added to the selected list for a report parameter. Click anywhere in the row to select the item.

Extending selections via shift-click and control-click and selecting multiple items via click and drag all function appropriately.

Selecting many items for a parameter, then selecting another parameter outside of this set, and then removing just one item from the selected items in the initial set, functions as intended.

It is possible to make selections for a single parameter (e.g. SYS_LOC_CODE), then make selections to another parameter (e.g. matrix), and then return to the initial parameter and add or remove selections. The initial selections are not lost.

To multi-select in the check box list, check the first item, hold down the Shift key, then Shift+Select or Alt+Select additional items.

To uncheck multiple selections, uncheck the first location, hold down the Shift key and select the last location. This will uncheck the selected locations.

The empty row with a check box at the top of the list (shown below) can be used as a placeholder to start the check or uncheck, using the Shift or Alt keys to select multiple locations.

The filter row at the top has a check box (shown below) which can be used to display all selected or all those not selected.
