Can a prompt be created for a stored process that displays a value and description?

I have a request to build a stored process to create a report and the user would like prompts to be displayed for 'county code' & 'county name' .

Example:

County_Code   County_Name

001                    Alpharetta

002                    Carter

003                    Denald

.....

 

The user would like a prompt built only for 'county code' but would like to see the 'county name' associated with the 'county code' listed in the drop down list of values. In the example above, they would see both in the list of values but the only prompt defined is for the 'county code'.

 

I have see documentation on creating selection group prompts and dependency prompts but can not find anything that fits what I need to be able to provide above.  Is there some other method I need to look at for doing this?

 

Thanks!

When creating the prompt, you can use unformatted value and the Formatted (Displayed Value). You can create a format that maps the two so the displayed value is what you want to show, but the underlying value remains unformatted.

Either way, I think formatted/unformatted value are what you're looking for.

yes it can display a value and description . during prompt creation you must specify the unformatted value (description)
