Symptoms

You've created an FR report that contains a prompt, and you would like to define a substitution variable as the Default Value for the prompt.  When you select the variable from the hierarchy (preceded by the '$' character), it subsequently displays in the Default Value field without the '$'.  When you click OK, an error is returned:

"ErrorNumber:2014  Error Message: Next elements are invalid for dialog box selection: <variable name>  ErrorStack:"
