When working with a dynamic prompt for a column containing numeric data that uses the Match or Not Match operators, if you use the value 1 as the string value to match you must use double quotation marks (" ") to enclose the value. Type the value as "1" in the text box or combo box, so that BIRT Studio evaluates it accurately as a literal string. If you use other values such as 2, 3, and so on, you do not need to enclose them in double quotation marks.
