How to pass multiple prompts when using report linking (WRS 4.2)?

My first report has multiple prompts (5).  Once the results are displayed in WRS, the users want be able to link to a second report using 2 of the prompts (vendor & type).  I can get the linking to work with only 1 prompt (vendor), but not more than that.  Was thinking if there was some way to create a concataned column of these 2 prompts (vendor, type) and somehow use this 'behind the scenes'?  Any ideas on how to accomplish this?

THanks

How to pass multiple prompts when using report linking (WRS 4.2)?

You could save the prompt values to a temporary table and then recover them when needed in the linked reports.  This link shows how to do a single set of prompts for a multi-section report.  Linked reports would use a similar pattern.  You just need to place a stored process in the linked report to recover the saved prompt selections.
