I am passing report criteria in a VisualForce page with an outputLink. It works fine where i pass a blank / true / false but when i pass a picklist value, the value does show up in the report filter but the report does not actually filter on that value?

This is my outputLink: (issue is with PV1)

<apex:outputLink value="{!'/00Ob0000004MZCF?pv0='&uv['Status__c']&'&pv1=Picklistvalue'&'&pc2=\'\''&'&pc3=\'\''&'&pc4=\'\''&'&pc5=\'\''&'&pc6=\'\''&'&pc7=\'\''&'&pc8=\'\''}"

If you are thinking to yourself that this is a rookie mistake - it is because i am a rookie! A rookie that desperately needs a pro's advise please.

Much obliged!

I found the solution. This particular filter is for the object's record type, so i needed to pass the record type id and not the text like with the other filters.
