Using prompts from another Stored Process

Hi all,

When I try to create some new stored processes which will include a same prompt value being used in an existing STP (it's a static list with a lot of values) and this prompt is not a sharing prompt. In this case, I am just wondering if there is a simple way to use this prompt value without a lot of copy and paste.

Thanks,

Eric

Re: Using prompts from another Stored Process

Good question.  Basically, is there a way to copy and paste a prompt from one stored process to another.

I guess you could make a shared prompt, then use it as a shared prompt in the new stored process and unshare it.

But since a prompt is just a piece of metadata. probably there is a better way to do that.  PROC METADATA, perhaps???
