How to create an input parameter to pass another corresponding value?


Hi Everyone,

I want to create an Input parameter in a way which will prompt the user to enter the value in some predefined description, but in back end it should pass the ID of that filed. I have a field call ERP System; the ERP system can be identified from ID or the name. Currently the users are entering the value using the ERP name. But to restrict the data from table used in view, based on ERP, I am joining using the ERP ID (as the fact and dimension tables doesn't have ERP name).

So my question is, if it is possible to accept ERP name in the front end and filter the table data based on ERP ID by passing the ERP ID internally?

I have WebI reports running on this view, so if I can achieve this from WebI also a fesible solution for me.

Note: I have one ERP Table, which stores the ERP Name and ERP ID column.
