    Hi Tomer,

    When you view the source of a wad page (before the report is running, the page you see when you enter a wrong value for parameter), you'll see that the BW creates a parameter name for the dropdown as well.

    So if a dropdown has values like (=, [], =>, # etc).

    You will see in the HTML:

    <select name="VAR_OPERATOR_X" id="..." ...>

    <option value="EQ" > = </option> // Equal

    <option value="BT" > [] </option> // Bigger than

    ..

    ..

    </select>

    Also # should be transferred as hex code %23 (if this is the value you want to pass)

    TOmer,

    1. is the display value for Null - and you will not be able to pass the ASCII value of # (%23) and get the same result - you would have to pass space (%20) instead ...

    pass %20 as the variable value through the URL and your report will take the value as # or Not Assigned..
