I wanted to create dynamic prompting in my report
(means : in user prompt if i select a country, the next prompt should contain the states of that country and further on seleting a state the next prompt should filter out the cities in that state.)
but i found that SAS 9.1 lacks dynamic prompting.
i found that it may be possible by linking stored processes together (executing one stored process calls other) but could sort it out.
anybody please assist...
if possible, please tell any other way out for the problem described above...
Your reference to "user prompt" is presumed to be a web application and a browser/user interaction? I performed a SEARCH at the SAS support website http://support.sas.com/ and there technical discussion about this topic (see link below), I believe, that may be of interest.
SAS 9.1.3 Integration Technologies » Developer's Guide
Another way would be that when you select a country (for example) the stored process is called again, passing the country in to it, you then generate the next list box with states, and so on. We built a very flexible dataviewer using this technqiue.
