Action Button in PAX with parameters

Post by MarenC »


I suspect it has always been the case but I hadn't noticed before, but when you run a process from Excel (PAX or Perspectives) or from the websheet published in PAW/web, has it always been the case that when the user pressed the button and the process had parameters, the user would not be prompted to update the parameter values? Instead you have to link the parameters to some cell on the sheet or hard code the values in?

I know I can get around this by creating the button in PAW, instead of using the one in the websheet but was just curious about this, as I am thinking, how have I not noticed this before!

Yes. There is no screen the change the parameter values or enter them.
