Using Dynamic and Cascading Prompts in SAS Enterprise Guide
SAS 9.2 Phase 2 and Enterprise Guide 4.2 offer new and improved ways of parameterizing one's programs. Prompted selection lists can be linked to data sets so that the lists change with the contents of the data. Prompts can also be connected to each other so that the value of a 2nd prompt depends on the value of the 1st prompt. Groups of prompts can be arranged so that end-users see prompts only if an earlier prompt is answered in a pre-specified manner. This paper will show examples of the various prompts one can establish in Enterprise Guide.
