Business Objects 4x - Dynamic Default Date Prompts

Create a Web Intelligence report containing a Dynamic Default Date Prompt for scheduling purposes to automatically populate the 'YYYYMM' date prompt with the value from the previous month.

For example, a report scheduled to run January 1. 2013 using with December 2012 as the 'YYYYMM' date will automatically populate the prompt with '201301'

Ideal for having one version of a Web Intelligence report for scheduling purposes that can also be refreshed by users with a different date.
