Almost a month back i noticed an issue with Stored Process Prompt in SAS EG 5.1. This issue however does not occur in 4.3. I have raised a incident with SAS Support on this.They are still working on the Fix i am assuming.
The issue is occurs when i create a simple stored process in SAS EG 5.1 having a Prompt of type "Dynamic List" and of "Multiple Value" ( ie User can choose more than one value) sourced from a SAS Dataset ( having for eg 15K records) and registered in a Metadata Library and now if i click the Prompt PREVIEW button the SAS EG just hangs but does open the Prompt window after about 15 mins. when the same process is repeated this time changing the same Prompt to a "Single Value" ( ie User can choose only one value) then the Prompt Windows opens faster when PREVIEW is clicked.
In SAS EG 4.3 this issue does not occur at all.
Please see attached file for the Prompt build using SAS EG 5.1.
I am curious if anyone else too is facing the same issue. BTW i am using SAS EG 5.1 with the latest Hotfixes G35013 in place on the Windows XP SP3.
I hope a solution to this issue is found soon as i do not want to use SAS EG 4.3 anymore because of the new features available in SAS EG 5.1
Need further help from the community? Please ask a new question.
