Hi ,

In SAP BO(Webi reports)., When we prompt user to enter inputs for the report generation, can we make some fields mandatory?

Can we include drop down fields in the input?

Any input please .

Thanks

    Yes. By default when you have the filter as prompt, it is mandatory. You can select the prompt properties to make it optional.

    If the prompt object has LOV enabled in universe (I assume you are using Universe), you can select the option 'prompt with list of values.

    HI Prabin ,

    I assume you are using BEx as source for webi .Webi reads BEx variables .If variable is mandatory it should be filled to generate report .

    If you are using any other database , then you must create @Prompt() in universe to get input from user.
