How to enable dynamic timestamp values in selection screen variant

1481 Views

Dear forumers,

I have the following scenario for a report program:-

The selection screen contains a data input parameter for timestamp data, P_START.

When a user maintains selection screen variants for the report program, the exact data values for P_START are saved as well.

However, there are times that the user would also prefer to maintain the data values for P_START dynamically, i.e. the first day of the current month.

This cannot be achieved currently. What can I do for enabling this feature?

In the selection screen variant under the Attributes setting, I am guessing that this can be done by selecting 'T (table variable from TVARVC)' as the Selection Variable. (Currently, this is blank.) Next, when checking on the Name of Variable, these appear in the search help:-

SAP_SCMA_DETAIL_LIST

SAP_SCMA_FISC_YEAR

SAP_SCMA_PERIOD

SAP_SCMA_POST_DATE

SAP_SCMA_POST_PERIOD

SAP_SCMA_SELV_PROJECT

SAP_SCMA_TEST_RUN

SAP_SCMA_VALUE_DATE

Would you please advise, on how shall I proceed with this?

Appreciate any input at all.

Many thanks.

P/S: P_START -- has the data format of UTC Time Stamp in Short Form (YYYYMMDDhhmmss)
