[SOLVED] Stopping prompts in InfoAssist

Hello,

We have a lg.fex that is called by default.wfs (to help create a log file). lg.fex sets some variables up ie -DEFAULTS &XXX = ' '; (As an aside I know -DEFAULT and -DEFAULTH so if anyone can explain -DEFAULTS I would appreciate too)
when I run an InfoAssist report I am prompted for a value for &XXX and I dont want to be.
I have tried putting a line in the InfoAssist report via text -DEFAULTH &XXX = ''; and this stops me being prompted but the report doesnt get produced when I click the run arrow, I seem to get in a loop of requesting reports taking me back to a page where I request reports. Bit of a tough one to explain but if anyone understands drop me a line.

Check the properties of the fex file you're starting, there is an option for parameter prompting.
