[CLOSED]XML at HTML Runtime with Amper Variable
I'm having an issue I'm finding difficult to troubleshoot because I do not know what's happening with my fex at html runtime.

I've recreated my issue using the GGSALES master. First, I build an Excel report where I pass some parameters to a launch fex.
Then, the launch fex then runs the html. On the html page, I prefill a date picklist with selected date. The problem is in the next part.
My picklist is supposed to be the min/max date values for the selected store code, but it is not happening. I don't know if the xml is being
executed or if it just isn't getting the parameter sent to it. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Code for Excel Report xml_rpt.fex:

  
-SET &ECHO=ALL;

TABLE FILE GGSALES
PRINT
	PCD
	STCD
	DATE/MDYY
ON TABLE PCHOLD FORMAT XLSX
ON TABLE SET STYLE *
TYPE=DATA, COLUMN=DATE, TARGET='_blank', FOCEXEC=xml_lnch(DATE=DATE STCD=STCD), $
END


Code for HTML Launch xml_lnch.fex:

  
-SET &ECHO=ALL;
-SET &DATE=EDIT(&DATE,'99')|'/'|EDIT(&DATE,'$$99')|'/'|EDIT(&DATE,'$$$$9999');
-? &
-HTMLFORM XML_TEST


Code for XML fex xml_test.fex:

  
-SET &ECHO=ALL;

TABLE FILE GGSALES
SUM
MIN.DATE/MDYY
MAX.DATE/MDYY
WHERE STCD EQ '&STCD'
ON TABLE SET HOLDLIST PRINTONLY
ON TABLE PCHOLD FORMAT XML
END


Code for HTML xml_test.htm:

Not sure of what you're meaning by "My picklist is supposed to be the min/max date values for the selected store code".
Are your trying to limit the calendar control to these Min/Max date ? If it's the case I'm not sure that it's possible to way you make it since xml_test.fex should be executed "BEFORE" xml_test.htm load the calendar control, which is not the case now, I think.

Pay attention at the fact that I change your variable name "DATE" to "DTE" and then pass "DTE2" to the HTML (xml_test.htm). I don't like to use a variable name that may be the same as a Key Word.
Also use the IBFS full path.

I don't think that I have resolved any issue since it's not clear for me what you are attempting.

Thanks for your reply. That's exactly what I'm trying to do; run the min/max dates (order dates?) for the selected store code. In the "settings" tab of the HTML page, under "Popup Calendar Settings", I have chosen to run "Dynamic". Below that it says "Calendar will be populated with a date range dynamically at runtime.", then it shows by xml_test.fex selected. I'd love to post a pic but my company doesn't allow access to my photo sharing sites Smiler
