I have just been told that part of our requirements for EP will be to use variants when accessing R3 reports from EP. I will be told the Transaction Code, and the variant, and it would be nice if I could execute the report with that variant as the iview loads.
I have found a couple of posts which talk about using tcode START_REPORT, and then D_SREPOVARI-REPORT=<REPORTNAME> & D_SREPOVARI-VARIANT = <VARIANTNAME> in the application parameters, but the problem is all this does is load the variant ... it doesn't actually process the first screen, even if I set the option PROCESS FIRST SCREEN to yes.
I see from the posts that I can create a new report, which calls the required report with the required variant. Is there no other, simpler, way of doing this?
Any information would be greatly appreciated.
