As far as I can tell (keeping in mind that I use Reports 10g), parameters are displayed without any problems using the "&field" notation. Therefore, perhaps it is you who did something wrong.

Based on your previous posts,I am assuming that you are using Repors6i...
Even In report 6i You can use in the parameter validation trigger By assigning your format into another variable2...
and set the source as variable2 @margin level so that you can get.

If you use '&' notation along with to_char

It will display...like tochar('Your format','YYYY').

So use a validation trigger for parameter form field.

Sriram.

Why wouldn't it compile? It is valid declaration.
SQL> declare
  2    v2 varchar2(4);
  3  begin
  4    v2 := to_char(sysdate, 'yyyy');
  5  end;
  6  /

PL/SQL procedure successfully completed.

Of course it is, i did not mean that actually, In his post he is not taking that as a bind variable.... Smile i suggested him to hold the string in a variable and give it as a source @ margin.

And I am Using the following at Afterparameter form

function AfterPForm return boolean is
begin
  srw.message(1,'Subhead:'||nvl(:subhead,'sriram'));
  	begin
	  select nvl('Report for Employee '||' On '||to_char(hiredate,'YYYY'),'sriram') into :subhead from emp_sriram a
  	where a.empno=:emp_no;
	exception when no_data_found then
		:subhead := null;
		srw.message(1001,'subhead:' ||:subhead);
	end;
	  return (TRUE);
end;


And used subhead as a source for the Required output.

I dont have your tables,i dont have your data....Nothing with me..thats why i already provided a sample example based on the normal tables Please use the same logic.....


Debug the error using srw package(upto which level your code working properly)....That might be because of afterPform trigger....

I have got it ..since one of my friend has helped me the same to get it done..
Thanks for all your time bro ram..


i Just write down what my friend has told

1. Create a parameter P_DATE under User Parameter section and make the DataType as Character.
2. Add the coding in Report Trigger->After Parameter Form

function AfterPForm return boolean is
begin
SELECT TO_CHAR(TO_DATE(:P_DATE),'YYYY') INTO :P_DATE FROM DUAL;
return (TRUE);
end;

3. Take a Field in Report layout form and choose Field Source as P_Date. Then run the report.

Ok..congratulations Smile What will you do if you want that :pdate to be used in the query ? again convert into date ?.

In my case i used :subhead of type char,:pdate as date so that i can use this :subhead any where at margin....What ever your friend suggested thats equal to my post is n`t it ?

Any way You got the desired output..congrats once again Smile Wink
And one more just now i re read your post,Please use proper format model for to_date As you are using :pdate as char...

Good luck.

If p_date is a date you shouldn't be to_dateing it. That's just a bug waiting to happen.
Also I would have thought it'd make more sense to put the results of your query in a different variable.

Yes you are right...But
He changed his mind now he wants the :pdate as a char....
