Stored Process Generate PDF

Hi Tech Support,

I have developed Stored Process which in turn generate PDF Reports based on the parameters provided by the end users. Where and how should i proceed to the WRS or IDP.

I know that when you have developed a stored process with macro variables as inputs you can see a text box in the Stored Process Explorer. Can i have the same functionality on WRS or IDP. HOW.

Please suggest.

Regards

Re: Stored Process Generate PDF

I think what you are referring to is an input parameter for your stored process. Here is information on how add a parameter:

Adding a Parameter to the Stored Process Definition
http://support.sas.com/documentation/cdl/en/stpug/61271/HTML/default/a003172097.htm#a003255328

The parameter will be surfaced by the clients that you mention.

If you need to contact our Technical Support Department, you can open a track at:

Re: Stored Process Generate PDF

Hi,

I tried to put the option you had specified but no luck, am i missing on some more options.

All i need is the PDF file which is created by the stored process to open with the Open, Save, Cancel dialog box when the stored process is executed.

I have also opened a SAS Technical Support track but no reply from there too.

Please suggest

It's probably best to continue to work with Technical Support on this issue.

Re: Stored Process Generate PDF

Hi,

I was successful in creating the stored process and having them published on the IDP.

When the user clicks on the Stored Process he is presented with the same interface which one would get from the Stored Process Explorer. That is fine but how do i suppress the different options the user is presented in the ADVANCED menu

In short i want the list of macro variables and their values like _ODSDEST etc....

Re: Stored Process Generate PDF

What version of SAS are you using, 9.1.3 or 9.2?

I don't know what you mean by the "ADVANCED" menu. How do you access that menu, and what are you seeing on it?

The property page only shows the parameters that are defined in metadata.

Re: Stored Process Generate PDF

I'm not sure what you mean by the "Advanced Menu" -- but this Tech Support note discusses how to suppress the usual property page:

Otherwise, I'm not clear on what you want to see.
