[CLOSED] Parameter report to scheduel report

I was told to make 4 reports for our different teams ( acct. mtg...)I made each report and had the user enter a specific week range. This report shows what each employee is working on and shows how long they spent on a specific task. Then it adds up the hours and minutes and displays the total. Now the users would like the report to run every Tuesday. The reports should run from the previous week (sun-sat). I know to scheduel the reports in Report Caster but what I am having trouble with is the date parameters. No one will enter the date range so how do I tell the report to run the previous week from Tuesday? Any help is appreciated.

Here is my code for one team. All of the code is the same for the other 3 teams.
 JOIN
 INNER MASTER14.MASTER14.MRID IN MASTER14 TO MULTIPLE
 MASTER14_TIMETRACKING.MASTER14_TIMETRACKING.MRID IN MASTER14_TIMETRACKING
 TAG J0 AS J0
 END
JOIN
 INNER J0.MASTER14_TIMETRACKING.MRTIMEUSER IN MASTER14 TO MULTIPLE
 CM_USERS.CM_USERS.USER_ID IN CM_USERS TAG J1 AS J1
 END
JOIN
 INNER J1.CM_USERS.USER_ID IN MASTER14 TO MULTIPLE
 VPCR_TEAMMEMBERS.VPCR_TEAMMEMBERS.TEAMMEMBER IN VPCR_TEAMMEMBERS TAG J4 AS J4
 END
TABLE FILE MASTER14
SUM
     COMPUTE EnrtyDate/YYMD = HDATE(J0.MASTER14_TIMETRACKING.MRTIMEDATE, 'YYMD'); NOPRINT
BY 'J4.VPCR_TEAMMEMBERS.TEAMNAME' AS 'TEAM NAME'
BY 'J1.CM_USERS.REAL_NAME' AS 'Name'
BY 'J0.MASTER14_TIMETRACKING.MRTIMEDATE' NOPRINT
PRINT
     COMPUTE EDate/MDYY = DATECVT(EnrtyDate, 'YYMD', 'MDYY'); AS 'Entry Date'
     COMPUTE Temp1/A10 = RJUST(10, J0.MASTER14_TIMETRACKING.MRTIMESPENT, Temp1); NOPRINT
     COMPUTE Temp2/A9 = SUBSTR(10, Temp1, 1, 9, 9, Temp2); NOPRINT
     COMPUTE TodaysDate/MDYY = DATEADD(&MDYY, 'D', -14);
     COMPUTE Temp3/D9 = EDIT(Temp2); NOPRINT
     COMPUTE Hours/D9 = INT(Temp3 / 60);
     COMPUTE Minutes/D5 = DMOD(Temp3, 60, Minutes);

Use Dialogue manager to calculate the date range and then use that value as a paramter for your report. Probably would be easiest to get system date, use DATEMOV to move to the beginning of week (BOW) and then DATEADD to subtract one week. Using this technique, a user could run the report at any time during the week and get the data for the previous week.

Specifics for using those funtions are in the online help or "Using Functions" manual.

A possible example might be:
DEFINE FILE SYSTABLE
NOW/YYMD = '20101125';
DOW/W = NOW;
LESS/I4 = DECODE DOW(7 1 1 2 2 3 3 4 4 5 5 6 6 7);
ENDDATE/YYMD = NOW - LESS;
STARTDATE/YYMD = ENDDATE - 7;
END

TABLE FILE SYSTABLE
ON TABLE SET PREVIEW ON
SUM FST.STARTDATE FST.ENDDATE 
ON TABLE SAVE
END
-RUN
-READ SAVE &STARTDATE.8. &ENDDATE.8.
-TYPE &STARTDATE = &ENDDATE
