    This may be due to number of records your reports have.

    Default behaviour of OBIEE to display 256 records in prompt for USER INPUT : Choice List. Then you click it will bring 256 more. If your data set is constrained with other columns or column itself comes from huge table it will load for endless time.

    If you need to do this, edit the instanceconfig.xml file.  This file is located at …


    Add the MaxDropDownValues parameter to the file.  If you do not already have a Prompts section, add it, and then add MaxDropDownValues between the Prompts tags.  And make sure that all this is between the ServerInstancetags which will already be there in the file.

    Your config file will look something like this …






    Change this setting and see.
