Create transaction with variant not working



Here's my issue -- I have a program that, right now, is more of a shell than anything else. It is to access the HR Logical Database PNPCE, and to help filter the data I pull back, I created a Selection View with a couple of additional fields. I put the necessary values in these fields and saved it as a Variant.

All I want to do is create a transaction to run my program and start it using my Variant to fill in these additional fields. Using SE93, I can create a plain transaction with no problem. However, if I click the "Start with variant" drop-down field, I get a response that says screen 1000 (my default Selection Screen) has no variants.

At first we thought there was some client-side things needing configuration, but if I go create a quick-and-dirty program with a single Selection Screen value (no Selection View) and a Variant, SE93 sees the variant with no problems. So I'm wondering if maybe it has something to do with the fact that I'm using a Selection View. Unfortunately, I'm so new to ABAP, I'm completely stuck on how to proceed.

Any suggestions? Thank you so much!
