Dear All,

I want to create a report with department, employee and month parameters but I want to give option to user to select any single department or all departments or select more than one department.

Kindly advise me, how?

Reports' Parameter Form can't do that, so you'll have to develop your own solution.

If you, for example, call that report from Forms, you could create a data block based on the "departments" table and let users mark (with a checkbox) departments they are interested in. Report would then look at that table and display only values that are checked.

Or, if you call the report from an Apex application, a shuttle item might be a good idea. Its output is a colon-delimited string (so you'd have to parse it in report in order to display desired values).
