Dates from a cell

You can specify a date range by selecting cells from a worksheet that contains a request. Report builder uses the specific date range information in those requests. If you select today’s date, you see partial data based on the time of day the request runs.

To configure dates from a cell

  1. On the Request Wizard: Step 1, select Dates From Cell.

  2. Enter cell references in the From and To fields, or click the selector and select the cells containing the requests with the starting and ending dates.

    For example, create a Report Builder request with the date range set to “yesterday” and output the request date in the same cell as “today()-1”.

Here is a list of supported date formats:
