Is there a way to restrict two infoproviders of different characterisitcs by creating single variables

Hi Experts,

I am new to BEx. I am facing some issues in variable creation. I have two infoproviders(composite provider in my case). One infoprovider is loaded with ECC data and another infoprovider is loaded with transaction data. In reporting layer, our requirement is to show 3 dashboards all together by using tabs and filter panel should be same for all the 3 dashboards.

For example, one of the filter panel variable is "date range", our requirement is to use one "date range" variable to restrict all 3 dashboards. Since the characteristics of these two infoproviders are different like 0calday for transaction data and 0ship_date for ECC date. So I couldnt create a single variable for these two infoproviders(since the characteristics are different).

But I want to know, is there any other way to meet our requirement in BEx.

Thanks in Advance.

    You can combine data from two infoproviders in an infoset.

    Inner join is default operation in infosets, left outer join is also possible.

    Hi Saranya,

    i think you need to post this question in Business objects forum.

    but since you are usign composite provider, you can map the0calday with 0ship_date right?

    so that it will be one object for filters working on this composite provider?
