Is formatted value of prompts available?

Hi,

When you define a stored process prompt, you can assign an unformatted value, and formatted value.  So you have maybe

0=No

1=Yes

When the stored process runs, the unformatted values are passed via macro variables.

Was wondering, is there an easy way to get the formatted values? (e.g. is there an actual format catalog sitting somewhere that has this in it?, or somewhere in the metadata?).

Of course I built the prompt values, so can use the same data to build my own format.

But was curious if this was already sitting somewhere.

Planning to use this with a SP called from SPWA, and want to return a subtitle which displays some of the user provided prompt values in language they will recognize.

Thanks,

-Q.
