(CLOSED)Unchecked Box Value
I have an html page that needs to feed a fex the values selected on the page. I have a check box that is bound to a parameter named DISRUPT. When the fex runs, it says I'm missing a value for &DISRUPT. I have -DEFAULT &DISRUPT='N' at the top of the procedure being run so that it provides a value, yet it still says it's missing a value. When the box is checked, it gets set to 'Y' as intended. Any clue what I need to do to satisfy the parameter when a box is unchecked? Thanks

As far as I understand and seen over the years, unchecked checkboxes values do not get sent.

Also use -DEFAULTH instead of -DEFAULT

That sounds like you might have unterminated expressions preceding that -DEFAULT expression. What's the code around it?

Well, I'm not sure exactly how it was fixed, but it appears to be working now. I removed all but just the necessary DEFAULT just before it started working. Not sure if this fixed it or it was something else...Thanks for the help.
