I'm working on a SQL report and am returning a list of values for a column/field, "STATUS", to be used as one of the search parameter.

SELECT DISTINCT STATUS FROM [table]
ORDER BY STATUS

Values returned are [blank], approved, onhold, etc.

How can I get the [blank] value to be set as "All" within the report parameter for STATUS?

Thanks for any help! Much appreciated.

Are you asking how you pass a value of ALL from your report? Or do you want to replace a blank value with the string value "All" when selecting from your table?

Here are some links about how to ask you question so that we can help you better:

CASE WHEN Status = '' THEN 'All' ELSE Status END

--or

COALESCE(NULLIF(Status, ''), 'All')
