Using prompt in SQL

Using prompt in SQL

Using prompt in SQL

How do you embed a cognos prompt in a custom SQL in impromptu?   I keep receiving an error when I try to insert a prompt in the SQL I have created for the report.

I am connecting to an Informix database.

I have tried enclosing it in '', "" and ().



RE: Using prompt in SQL

Don't know if this will help as we are not informix users, however, when we have inserted prompts into sql we use the insert prompt button within the query builder window and the syntax appears as below within the sql, we then subsequently place it where it is required:

T3.Year_Text IN ?Year?  

Where ?Year? is the prompt.



RE: Using prompt in SQL

It has been awhile, but I believe that ?prompt? syntax is correct.
