Resolution

Possible solutions to the scenario above:
1. Enter both "From Run Date" and "To Run Date" even if those are not mandatory
2. Create a custom job that is a replica of the Purge Report Output but where both parameters are mandatory
   Custom jobs can be created at Administration > Data Administration > Report and Jobs
   For further information on how to create custom jobs, please check our documentation:
