Dynamic and Prompted Dates in Central Management Console/BI Launchpad


I'm not sure if this is the right forum for this discussion, so please let me know if I should move it.

The reports where I work are currently with an Oracle database, using SQL Commands or stored procedures and temp tables, run through a custom Internet interface or scheduled through Central Management Console or BI Launchpad.

The reports in question that I'm being asked about are desired to have both dynamic and user-entered date parameters.

When they are scheduled on a recurring basis, the user wants to put in a formula or sysdate (see attached) so that can be used to complete the date parameters, BUT if the report is run ad-hoc or through the Internet interface, the user can still enter the date parameters and have it run to those specifications.

Is this possible?  I would normally have two reports - one that runs the desired date range and set that one to recurring and one for ad-hoc with date parameters.

Would anyone happen to know how to do this?  If it's possible?  A work-around?

Thank you,

    Which version of BusinessObjects/Crystal Reports Server are you using?  Which version of Crystal?

    There is probably a way to do this, but it's dependent on the version you're using.
