Information in this document applies to any platform.
This problem can occur on any platform.


When attempting to run a report with a simple query like "select sysdate from dual," and paramform=yes, the following error occurs:


REP-546: table or view does not exist
select <column_name>  from ==> <tableA>

REP-0788: Warning: The value of restricted LOV parameter <parameter_name> is not among the selectable values.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

1. Execute a report with User Parameters in the parameter form from Reports Builder or rwservlet url.

2. When the parameter form is displayed, pass the parameter value.

3. Run the report. REP-0546 and REP-788 will be displayed and the report will not be executed. The table_name that is generating the error is not found in the Data Model -> SQL Statement
