However, what I really want to do - is have an 'intelligent' default value displayed to the user and also give the user the ability to override if they need to.
Therefore, I really want to be able to apply the date function to the default value of the parameter. Ie. I want to put the date function as per below in Default value box in the Parameters Manager screen.... But I just can't get this to work... Perhaps its not possible?
I have played with is a bit and it seems to me that SAS will ALWAYS run the built-in Enterprise Guide macro code (for the parameter) first... and then run code that I write in a module after that. I guess if there was a way to get it to run my code first it might be a way around this..? (ie. write code to work out the default value of the Enterprise Guide parameter and get this code to somehow run first)
