Prompt for Report Title

My goal is to provide a prompt for users to type (or select from default values) a custom report title. In the business layer, I setup a static list of values:

I then setup a parameter:

And a filter:

I include that filter in a WebI report:

When I create a cell with:

=UserResponse("psReport Title")

The cell displays nothing. If I put one of the other prompts in the UserResponse function, then it displays the value; it just doesn't work for the report title prompt. Is this a bug, am I missing something, or is there a better way to set this up?

I'm pretty sure I did try that, but I must have had something slightly off, because it's working now. I'm still not sure why

"psReport Title" doesn't work, when it does with the other prompts, but I'm not going to worry about that; as long as it works this way. Thanks!
