How to get the list of values for a dynamic parameter using Web Services SDK?

<p>I am struggling to get the list of values for a dynamic parameter of a report.</p><p>I am using Java Web Services SDK ... I tried to use PromptInfo.getLOV().getValues() method but it does not work.</p><p>First of all ... is this possible (to get the list of values for a dynamic param) using Web Services?</p><p>Second of all, if this is possible, how should I do it ... it seems it works fine when running the report from CMC. It asks for DB logon info and after that it provides a list of values.</p><p>Thx </p>

    <p>I am assuming that you&#39;re trying to get the LOVs from a Crystal Report. Unfortunately, the Web Services SDK does not support this functionality.<br /><br />I would be interested to hear what are you trying to accomplish to see if there are alternatives to look at.<br /><br />Thank you,<br /><br />Kima<br /><br />----

      <p>Your assumption is correct. We are trying to get the LOVs from the Crystal Report. I was not aware that this is not supported by Web Services SDK.</p><p>We used Web Services SDK to integrated the Crystal Reports in our web application. We implemented some basic actions for reports: schedule, view instances, run ad-hoc reports.</p><p>We encountered this problem when trying to run/schedule reports with dynamic parameters (a list of values from DB). We were unable to get the LOVs.</p><p>Please let me know if you can think of an alternative to look at.</p><p>Thanks a lot,</p><p>Catalin </p>
