How to pass parameter to stored procedure depending upon the selection from a dropdown?

Hi All,

 

I am looking into a way of passing a selected element (from a drop down) to stored procedure as a parameter.

(means the stored procedure will execute on the change drop down element action).

 

How I can achieve this?

 

I am calling a stored procedure like:

let
    Source = Sql.Database("mydatabaseinstance", "AdventureWorks2012", [Query="DECLARE @SP VARCHAR(100) = 'dbo.uspGetEmployeesByJobTitle @JobTitle = ''Senior Tool Designer'''#(lf)EXEC (@SP)"])
in
    Source

from here.

 

 

-------------------------------------------

I have also gone through this behavior of  calling a stored procedure by passing parameters.

 

but I believe.... through this way, we can achive different results on the Queries side..... not on the actual Reports side because they are not runtime parameters.

(So this behavior is not suitable in what I want).

 

 

Thanks

Re: How to pass parameter to stored procedure depending upon the selection from a dropdown?

Hi @azizimranz,

 

If you were attempting to pass selected value from slicer to stored procedure as a parameter, this is not available. It is not supported to pass slicer selection to Power Query. To dynamically change dataset loaded into desktop, we have to use query parameter as you mentioned above.

 

through this way, we can achive different results on the Queries side..... not on the actual Reports side because they are not runtime parameters.

 

Editing the parameter value, both query side and report side will be changed.

Hi @v-yulgu-msft

 

Thanks for the clarification and clearly saying that 'passing a runtime parameter from the slicer is not available'.

 

I might have to change the stored procedure in a way that it would return all the data and we then filter it down as per the dropdown selection.

 

 

Thanks
