Generated Prompt is a kind of prompt which automatically chooses & display any of the other prompt(Text prompt,value Prompt etc) at run time according to the data type of the data item added for the filtering.

For Example - If you add date and time value as the filter item in a generated Prompt, the prompt will automatically choose the 'Date and Time Prompt' at the run time.

Well, it is an interesting prompt in Cognos. The generated prompt is used whenever we are not sure which prompt to use in the report. When we use generated prompt, it will change itself into a suitable prompt based on the column type hich is associated with it.

If we want to select single value in text datatype in the prompt, it will change into a value prompt.

If we want to select multiple values in the prompt, it will change into a list box.

If we want to select single value in number datatype in the prompt, it will change into a text box prompt.

If we want to select the range between to values in number datatype, it will change into intervals (2 text box prompts) asking for the range.

If we want to give the range between to values in text, it will change into two value prompts.

We can predefine which prompt should be displayed for the chosen column properties in the Framework Manager.
