Can't find 0FYTLFP OLAP Variable in InfoPackage Data Selection tab on 3.5

On BW 3.5, when generating an InfoPackage with the datasource as Purchasing Data(80PUR_C01), under Data Selection tab, for the InfoObject 0FISCPER, I selected 7 (OLAP variables)for the Type column, then click the button next to it and under the column of Details for Type to bring up a window, but when expending the OLAP Variable field list, can't find the following value in the list which shows up on BW 3.1:

0FYTLFP 0FISCPER Cumulated to Last Fiscal Year/Period (SAP Exit)

How to make the above value show up in the OLAP Variable list? I thought maybe the variable 0FYTLFP needs to be installed in Business Contents, but there is no variable object type in Business Content. It sounds like a SAP Exit, but how to make the SAP Exit value show up on BW 3.5?

Thanks for everyone's input!

    Hi Kevin,

    Use 0FPER OR 0P_FPER instead.

    For details see OSS Note #199014 - "Tips & tricks with variables II".

    A note #121291 - "Tips and tricks for the use of variables" may be helpful also.

    Best regards,

      Hi Kevin,

      As you said that message means this variable is not in the system.

      Also you are saying now the fourth variable is visible, this means either some process of installation is still going on or BASIS missed something. Check on the OSS if they have something more on this.

      I forgot to ask, on which service pack you are? Also is the BEx working properly.
