Build Dynamic, Relative Date Ranges

We've all done it. We build a Web Intelligence report, set it to prompt for a beginning and ending date, and publish it. It works, and the user gets the results they need. (As long as they enter the dates correctly.)

But what about scheduling? How do you schedule a Web Intelligence report to dynamically show the previous month's results?

Let's make it easy. Instead of having to figure out dates, simply choose from a drop-down list. Plus, the same logic will work whether a report is run interactively or scheduled...even in your dashboards.
