How to consume value help for Variables/Input Parameters in BOBJ reports



We need to do some BI analysis based on calculation view which created in SAP HANA Studio SPS07.

Variables/Input Parameters are used in the view, and the values for them are derived from other views/tables.

For example, the values for Variable V_SAPClient are derived from the view SAPClientValueHelp;

the values for Input Parameter P_ControllingArea are derive from the view

When we execute data preview in SAP HANA Studio, we can choose values for Variables/Input Parameters from value help.

I tried to create a data foundation based on this view, and then create a business layer. But when I execute a query based on the BL, I found that there is no value retrieved for all Variables/Input Parameters.

I also tried another way. In SAP Crystal Reports for Enterprise 4.1 SP2, I created a crystal report using HANA DB as the Data Source Connection, but the result was similar to previous way.

So how can we consume the value help for Variables/Input Parameters? Don't we still need to create Lists of Values in Data foundation? or create parameters in Crystal Reports?

Your help will be very much appreciated!

Thanks and Best Regards
