Value based on date param?

i work for a electric utility and we have customer meter readings imported into the database on a daily basis. I would like to be able to calculate the daily use based on (2) date parameters (BEGDATE) & (ENDDATE). Any ideas how to approach this?

    Try to apply the fileter condition like this

    >={?BeginDate} and <={?EndDate}

    Now insert a summary in the report footer on meeter readings like this

    sum({Meter Reading})

    Regards,

      Thank you for the suggestions, but my problem is not on how to get the parameters for the Date prompts working, it is once I get the dates pulled in. How would I then pull the readings that correlate to the dates prompted? ie; Every date has a given reading assigned to it....06/01 = 200....06/02 = 225....06/02-06/01 = 25 kWh of usage.

    Please re-post if this is still an issue or purchase a case and have a dedicated support engineer work with you directly
