Hi Havas, 

It’s not possible to use manually entered value in a cell as a filter. As a workaround you can create a report template with an excel filter option, by using the code_b in the repeater. 

Or use a sheet repeater, if you can control the multiple input parameter in code_b.

Hi Havas,
You cannot take a cell value to filter records. Hence you can try the following approach.

First you need to create a parameter to represent the value of Code_B.

You need to have a repeater to show the result for each account.


Selecting the same row and navigate to the tab Filter Criteria and add Code_B and from the LOV select the parameter value created.

When you execute the report with the following setup, during the execution a dialog box will popup to get the value for the Code_B.

Best Regards,
