CR 8.5 - Prompting for Parameter Field(s) values ...

I am getting re-acquainted with CR after a 10 tear haidus. I just inherited a CR 8.5 template report to base myself on to produce a new report. This report will produce a dialog box that prompts for field parameter value(s) whenever the end-user refreshes the report. For example the user could select a "ClosingDate" field from the list of available fields and select the current date as a parameter which will force the report to display all entries for the current month.

How is this done. Is there a special functionality or feature in CR 8.5 that allows me to do this? Is this done via formulas - if so, how?

Thanks,

Jean
