Error description

  • Since IBM Cognos 10 BI 10.2 a token from a prompt macro gives
    the value in inverted comma instead of brackets back. The
    following sample illustrate the issue:??Expression - behavior in
    IBM Cognos 10 BI 10.1.1?#prompt('Pt_Zeilen';'token')#?result:
    The token gives the value of the parameter 'Pt_Zeilen' in
    brackets [] back.??Expression - behavior in IBM Cognos 10 BI
    10.2?#prompt('Pt_Zeilen';'token')# ?result: The token gives the
    value of the parameter 'Pt_Zeilen' in inverted comma ''
    back.??That means all reports with this constellation have to be
    redesigned after an migration from IBM Cognos 10 BI 10.1.1 into
    IBM Cognos 10 BI 10.2
    

Local fix

  • workaround:
    1. change prompt makro into #sb(prompt(..))#
    2. change Static values from [xyz] into xyz
    3. copy xyz data item and rename it into 'xyz'
