WebI Cascading Prompts OK button deactivated greyed out

We have created 2 WebI reports that differ only by language. One works fine the other does not but it used to. We changed the order of the prompts and it stopped working but changing it back to the original order and that didn't fix it.

We have a cascading prompt Year / Dept / AoM. When we use it in a WebI report the prompts come up as expected in the correct order with the correct list of values....BUT the "OK" button on the prompt dialog is deactivated (greyed out). No matter how we change the order the "OK" is never activated.

This only happens with the HTML client which is what our users are using. The JAVA applet is not available to them for reasons we won't go into.

We are not the only ones to experience this, refer to Forum Topics Http:// and they also have not found a solution.

This is obviously a show stopper.

    Hello Brian

    I see that you are using

    Can you try changing the WEBI preference to rich client mode and do the same?

    I had similar issue and it was faced on web mode. I don't know if this was reported to SAP or they have already provided solution to this on recent version.

    Let me know if that works for you.

      No but even the report that appeared to be working fine was returning bad results and the whole report was rebuilt a different way using multiple queries within the report to mimic a cascading prompt. We abandoned our original cascading prompt.
