Is it possible to use Pentaho to parameterize a report (preferably BIRT) with a parameter that has a population of values taken from the database?

To use the foodmart example, when a report is requested, rather than having the region coming from a list hard-coded into the report, can the list of regions come from the database? The user would select the region they are interested in from a dropdown before viewing the report.

Thanks,
Paul

Yes. Please see the examples under the solution samples/secure.

Take care,
