Prompt defaults and empty query results

Hi all,
I am a webi developer that has inherited some old Deski reports. Deski and Webi are sort of alike, but not exactly. So, I am having some trouble trying to do some things in Deski.

Here is what I am trying to do.
I have a prompt in my deski. When I develop the query and save it, it saves the last queried item in the prompt when I open it each time. So, I have to remove the information from the prompt before I putting in the new information. Is there a way to make it so the deski prompt does not keep the last value each time you run it? How do I do it?

Next question.
My report has 4 queries in it. Sometimes 2 or 3 of those queries return no data. This is appropriate. When the report runs and completes, I get 2 or 3 message boxes saying that the query had no results. Is there a way to turn off those message boxes? How do I do it?

Any help would be appreciated?

  1. You have to purge the data providers before you export the report to the repository from keeping the filled in prompt values.

  2. This FAQ gives you n no. of ways.
