      I believe if you are giving default value if user doesn't choose a value from the list, then it means it will run with the value 'ALL'. Well then why do you want the prompt to be optional? You can remove the ",Optional" part of the expression to make it run.

    If your passing default value then that expression not consider 'Optional',If you need Optional you have to remove default value.

    When we are going for optional : If we are not passing anything then also our query have execute but in this cause if we are not passing any prompt value automatically query will fetch all the values because your passing {ALL}
