Parameter - Web Action Builder Dialog

The Parameter-Web Action Builder dialog helps you to build a Parameter web action on an object so as to run a specified report with the parameters defined in the dialog when the event bound with the action is triggered at runtime. It appears when you select *Parameter and select OK in the Web Action List dialog.
