Error description

  • ???Consider 3 cascaded global prompts A,B,C and a chart
    listening to these prompts in the cognos workspace. Since it is
    a cascading prompt the prompt B gets enabled with the selection
    of  PROMPT A( B is cascaded to A ) .When the user selects both
    PROMPT A and B simultaneously, the chart will render only to
    first prompt A. It is because the second selection was done
    while the chart is processing the first value prompt selection
    .But the chart works fine when the PROMPT B selection is done
    only after the chart is rendered for PROMPT A.??NOTE : When we
    execute this report in the report studio, the PROMPT B is
    enabled only after the chart is rendered for PROMPT A.??
    ??Attached Videos explains the details.?? ??Question is : Is
    there a stitching possible in the 2 widgets so that the prompt
    Widget knows that the chart widget has not processes yet and
    hence requires to keep the other cascaded prompt disabled.??Work
    around already discussed with customer and the answers as
    below:??1. Why cant the customer use report prompts also embeded
    in it and not as a separate Widget ? - Answer:The customer wants
    to have multiple?charts getting refreshed via the selection in
    this cascading report?widget.??2. Why cant you stop auto submit
    on selection of the prompts and make a?button to submit after
    all the selection has been made ? - Answer : These?reports are
    getting used by executives. They are used to other?reporting
    systems which provide rich functionality. Making such an?option
    will degrade their experience.
