In BICS Connection, prompt variable in webi takes huge time to find

Hi All,


There is a BICS connection which is build on top of Bex Query. There is multiple option variable while running the webi report . Initially if I put the value in one the selection variable it was not coming, then I choose Match with Key and then again clicked on the find button, it was able to find out the sales order number after long time. I have to run the same report for 10 sales order number, it is really time taking to find the sales order number one by one. Can anyone please advise how can i get those sales order numbers in the selection without waiting that much time. List of sales order numbers in the selection are not fixed.Earlier using the universe I was not facing the issue.

Thanks

Snehasish

    Hi Snehashish ,

    In View mode ,a trick we follow is if you have sales order to pass to prompt with you

    1.Paste them in Excel

    2.=IF(A1="","",IF(A2="",A1&"",A1&";")) .formula to append ; at end of each value

    3.Copy this values to notepad

    4.remove last blank

    5.copy values to word . Replace ^p with null (no space also) . you'll get a vertical line of all values.

    6.paste them in prompt entry field (Type values here box).

    7.Run report.
