BO - Saving the "Element linking" selection, and filled a cell based on this selection


We have a report in Webi, in which we have 2 tables. One of them has an "Element Link" in a column "ID Task" to the second one. Based on that, we have 2 questions:

1) We want obtain this selection saving in any variable, but we don't find the resources to do it. ¿Is it any chance to recover the value of the "Element link" by means of any variable (predefined or built in the report, it does not care).

2) When we click on the column with the "Element link", we want to color the cell in which we do this selection (for example, if you click on Task1 in "ID Task", the cell that contains Task1 must be colored in the way you need). ¿Is it any workaround available?

Thanks and regards.

    Hi Aena,

    Currently, Webi doesn't have a feature to capture the value clicked with Element linking ON in a block, many people are waiting for that feature, I requested for this on BI Idea Place, please register and vote up on my idea. Hopefully, we get a lot of votes and SAP eventually brings this feature.

    Capture the value we clicked on a block which has Element Linked feature turned ON : View Idea

    Meanwhile, let me think for a workaround and hopefully, some Gurus will respond to you.
