Extract Prompt information from EG

Hello to you all Smiley Happy

 

Is there a way to extract the PROMPTS ("invite" in french) information? (Name, type, low value, high vaule, etc...)

 

I'm very familiar with SAS Dictionary tables but this info doesn't seems to be there. I did my 15 min research effort with no chance.

 

Thanks in advance for your prompt reply.

 

Happy 4th of July to who'm it may apply Smiley Happy

Prompts are stored as macro variables. You should be able to find the values in the SASHELP.MACRO table.

Hello Reeza

 

Thanks for your prompt reply.

 

You're absolutely right about the dictionary.macros content. There is still a little something missing there.

 

Where do I find the validation element of thoses prompts? Date, Date interval, numeric, nemeric interval, etc...  Low value, hight value, default value, ertc...

Hello Reeza and a few other that replied in private.

 

After writing to SAS tech Support, I've got an answer that those are saved within the EG Project file and are not available in anyway other then by the menu.

 

Did ask to have this available in a future version if possible. That would have helped me on my current project.

 

Have fun guys Smiley Happy
