BEx Analyzer: Dropdown based on hiearchy


In BEx Analyzer 7 I need to add a design item which allows me to filter

- several data providers at once

- based on a hierarchical display of the filtering InfoObject

With the design items 'Navigation Pane' and 'List of Filters' hierarchies are supported but it only affects one data provider

With the design item 'Dropdown Box' hierarchies are not supporte but it could affect severeal data providers.

Does anyone know how to solve the problem?

This question has already been asked in 2011 at discussion but it has not been answered.

Thanks for your response.

    You could try a different approach using Query's as Variable Input.

    This allows you to use different providers and affecting them equally.
