Parameter Concatenation

I am looking to create 3 parameters that will be combined to create a 4th parameter.

 

Here is the idea

Parameter one they would enter their state like (OR, CA, FL)

Parameter two they would enter their Private Code (6879,0987)

Parameter three they would enter their file name (6879.xlsm, 0987.xlsm)

 

Parameter four would change this into a path like \\network\outside\locational\"Parameter One"&OT\"Parameter two"\Parameter three

 

So you would end up with something like this \\network\outside\locational\CAOT\6879\6879.xlsm

 

This would then be used as the parameter file to update the queries location for that report.

 

I hope that makes sense.

 

thanks

Hi @ipon70 ,

 

Due to the design, the parameter 4 you mentioned cannot be implemented dynamically. Here are the alternatives:

(1) Create three parameters.

(2) Create a new blank query.

 

= "\\network\outside\locational\" & Parameter1 & "OT\" & Parameter2 & "\" & Parameter3

 

Click Source in the step bar to change the original source to query.

(3)Or you can click the gear next to the source in the step bar.
