[SOLVED] Populating a dropdown via report
 Login/Join

I am working on a report that will require multiple filters so that there aren't thousands of results in one dropdown. The 2 filters are both in dropdowns and passed into a final dropdown. The final dropdown, however, isn't being populated by the report. When I run the report separately, rather than trying to populate it through the dropdown, the values get passed in properly and filter just fine.

Are you using Auto-prompting where two prompt should provide values for a third one or from an html page you have three filters (dropdown) that must pass values to a report ?

Please clarify and maybe share your code using the code tag (last icon on the ribbon that looks like the below)

If your report is on an HTML launch page, don't forget to "refresh" the dropdown requests if you make any changes.

It's all on one HTML page with 3 dropdowns. 2 dropdowns are meant to pass its value into the 3rd report, which I then use to populate the last dropdown.

Does DropDown 1 & 2 are properly linked to DD 3 ?

For me it's look like they must be chained together
Look under Parameters tab from HTML Composer

Thanks Martin, my problem was that I didn't properly link dropdown 1&2 to 3. That solved everything!
