Dynamic Prompts - Permissions

Hi,

I'm having an issue with dynamic prompts performing look ups on tables.

Libname and tables are assigned via a library and users can access the data from sas programs.  Library is pre-assigned.

Issue comes up with dynamic prompts on the same tables.  Users can open SP.  No message in EG but fields are not populated.  The prompt GUI comes up with the following message in SMC

Unable to find physical table

I have checked relevant permissions on:

- stored process

- reference tables and libraries

Any help is appreciated.

Thx,

R

Re: Dynamic Prompts - Permissions

When we pre-assign libraries in SMC we also add AssignMode = 2 under the Extended Attirbutes tab of the library properties. This ensures that any tables in that library will show in the server list or enable use in code etc without being registered. Suggest you try this with your problem.

Thanks SASKiwi.

I figured it out.  Turns out it was a permissions issue on a Metadata folder.
