Error description

  • We have a datetime model prompt in the model, and it works just
    fine except for Cognos Analysis for Excel. When I create a list
    or exploration and expect this prompt to pop up I get an
    exception: ?Unhandled Prompt Control Type?Specified? instead.
    The problem seems to be related to data type being datetime,
    because other types (tried date, string, and integer) work just
    fine.
