I have a master file created on top of a stored procedure which accepts an input variable username. I need to be able to use the result output in the dropdown values. How do I do this?
TABLE FILE CONTRACT_LIST
WHERE @WFUSERNAME = 'testuser'
ON TABLE HOLD AS CONTRACTLIST
TABLE FILE db_contracttab
WHERE CONTRACTNAME EQ &CONTRACTNAME.(FIND CONTRACTNAME IN CONTRACTLIST |FORMAT=A30).CONTRACT NAME:.QUOTEDSTRING;
Error occurred during Autoprompt processing CONTRACTNAME NoDB : (FOC205) THE DESCRIPTION CANNOT BE FOUND FOR FILE NAMED: CONTRACTLISTThis message has been edited. Last edited by: FP Mod Chuck,

Using APP HOLD folder (as NARSA sample baseapp) may create problem if more than one user can execute your procedure "in the same time".
Both users will create and hold the file in the same location with the same name and potentially with different data since the WHERE clause is on the user name. In result that user1 may see the data from user2 or vice versa.
Even this said, it will not work because the file must exist prior to the fex execution to have the autoprompt working which is not the case since it will exist only on fex execution. The reason of that it's because autoprompt run prior to the file creation.
Try with the below and you will have the same error :
-* Part A
APP HOLD baseapp
TABLE FILE CAR
WHERE COUNTRY NE 'ITALY';
ON TABLE HOLD AS COUNTRYLIST FORMAT FOCUS
-* End Part A
-* Part B
TABLE FILE CAR
WHERE COUNTRY EQ &COUNTRY.(FIND COUNTRY IN baseapp/COUNTRYLIST |FORMAT=A10).Country:.QUOTEDSTRING;
But if you run the file creation first (Part A) then the second part (Part B) with the autoprompt, it will work because the file exist
Is this part of a Portal where other option than autoprompt may be used ?
