No value found for Text Variable

Dear colleague,

I have a query which uses Text variable as column header. For example (we are in period 9,2005);

- one column is displaying the current period/ previous fiscal year (&PYCMACT&), so the column header is: 009/2004

- another column is displaying the current period/ current fiscal year (&CYCMACT&), so the column header is: 009/2005

There is another column which should display both text variable: 009/2004 to 009/2005 (&PYCMACT& to &CYCMACT&), but the system does not recognize those variables.

The system says:

Text variable PYCMACT, which is found in the item " PY vs CY Actual", needs to be replaced by the value of the characteristic 0FISCPER. This value is not clearly specified in the item " PY vs CY Actual". Therefore, no replacement takes place.

I tried every possible options I could think of, but whatever I try (selecting 0FISCPER as filter value, free characteristic, etc.), I still get the same error message.

Any hint would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much!

Sylvain

    Hi Sylvain,

    I assume that your column "PY vs. CY Actual" is a formular that uses the two other colmumns you mentioned. In this case you have in the formular column two text variables for one InfoObject 0FISCPER and the system gets problems with the replacement path, because it wants to replace 0FISCPER (which is not unique in this column).

    Possible solution is to use text variables with type "customer exit" and you set the text variable in the customer exit. If the text variable needs a value of another characteristic variable you can use the set and get parameter id logic in the exit.

    Adios
