Im looking to see if I can make a paramater dependenet on another in SQL (AND SSRS)

Basicaly we currently have a look up where people put part of a name in and it takes all of them and searches
Contact_Name LIKE '%' + @BrokerLookup + '%'

so if it was like nic

it would pick out nick, nicholas, nic from the contact name

what I then want is a second paramater that goes okay heres all the contact names liek nic, now in ssrs I want just nick and nicholas and to exclude nic...

how would I do this in SQL? I think SSRS bit is just a case of adding a paramater which is hidden until someone types in something in to first paramater am i right?

Many Thanks

Nic, Nick, NIcholas :)

nope. in SSRS you need to create second parameter and add first parameter as a parameter for dataset query in it. By doing so,SSRS interprets them as related and makes them cascading so that param2 will get enabled only when you enter/select a value in param1
