Parameter Maps in 8.4

Parameter Maps can now be based on Query Subjects in 8.4.

You can now have a query subject that retrieves the Key and Value pair as columns and base the Key - Value pair of Parameter Map on this. So now we no longer need to hard-code Key-Value pair which was earlier making parameter maps a unusable feature of Cognos.

That's what I'm actually trying to achieve in FM 8.4.1 but I'm not getting a right syntax... do you have an example of it? Thanks.

Once you have created the parameter map you will have to write macros to use them. You can look up FM user guide for macro syntax. Let me know if you want me to do a write-up on the same.
