Post subject: Need Clarification about "PROMPTS" in "BO XI-


Hi everybody,
I am facing some problems with prompt while creating universes in BO XI and want solutions to them:-

1.Is it possible to validate a prompt.I mean to say that if it contains a parameter like DATE(to be entered by user),then it should also validate whether the entered value is in proper format or not like 'DD/MM/YYYY'.

2.Also in case if there are two parameters "Start Date" and "End Date",then is it possible to put this condition (Start date > end date) in the prompt as this condition will work after the user has entered date in the "Start Date" and "end date" columns in prompt.So how to get the dynamic value entered by user and put condition on it.

3.Can we disable the prompts depending upon the conditions.I mean to say that is it possible to disable prompts depending upon the values entered by the user in previous prompts.

Like the font - really helped my headache this morning.

Point 1. I suggest you put this into the text of the prompt: i.e "Enter Date dd/mm/yyyy"

Point 2. Not that I am aware of

Point 3. No. Each and every prompt must be completed.

Off to get some nurofen. icon_cool.gif
