User input from keyboard

hi,
is it possible to have the user input data from keyboard? ex: Like a message box, but asking the user to enter or select Date, and then process data based on the Date entered.

Hi
Using the context variable, date type, check the box 'prompt'. It will ask the user to select Date or enter a Date when executing the job.
Best regards

After you export the job script, execute the bat file on windows platform or the .sh file on Linux system.
