May 17, 2006: Setting Up Parameters With the Design Studio, from Doug Moran, Pentaho Architect

The article this week addresses a common task that community users are asking about over and over - how do you specify parameters to a report, and pass a list of valid values for the user to select the parameter from?

The Design Studio eliminates the frustration of writing XML, and should make the parameter passing a bit easier to understand and implement.
