Hello Ken,

Please consider a scenario that you have one existing dropdown which you have used in number of datawindow. Now for one datawindow you need to pass argument for other datawindow you don't need arguments. In this type of case we have to pass argument from all the places. If we have any option to make argument as default then we have to pass argument only from the place where we need it and from other place it will be handled automatically.

Let me know in case of any questions or concerns.

Hi Vedant,

Sorry, I don’t quite understand what you mean, can you take a screenshot and tell me your question?

*Phenomenon: We have option to set default argument in procedure we need same type of option in datawindow. Because whenever we add any argument in dropdown we have to change many places and need to check impact on all other datawindows.
