1710440 - No parameter prompt for a report set to "prompt when viewing" when defining sOutputformat =E or =P


  • When calling a parameterized report through an OpenDocument URL, if the parameter is set to "prompt when viewing," the user should be prompted to define the parameters.
  • After XI 3.1 Service Pack 2, in .NET only, the user is no longer prompted when using a URL that defines sOutputFormat=E or P.  sOutputFormat=H works as expected by prompting the user for the parameter.



  • BusinessObjects Enterprise 3.1, Service Pack 2 and newer
  • SAP BusinessObjects BI 4
  • OpenDocument URL using sOutputFormat of =E or =P


SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence platform 4.0 ; SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise XI 3.1
