Ok, I'm working on a solution where the end user will select options that they want to report on. It is a standard report but the end user selects which records to report on. i.e. builds the parameters of a find request. My question for Technet is: What are your thoughts on how to go about this? What have you done in this sort of situation?


I'm more looking for ideas that others have made work.


Here is what I'm thinking so far. Create a layout that has the report filtering fields on it and a submit button on it. The submit button would then perform a find and take the user to the Report layout. Personally this seems like a kludgy way to make this happen. I'm looking for new way to make this happen and I having a problem getting out of old design ruts.
