Textvariables with Replacement Path

Hi Network,

I have a calculation which shows the Percentage Share of a figure which only differs in the selected version.

The shown figure is calculated from 2 restricted figures which are restricted vie Variable Version 1 and the other via Variable Version 2 on the InfoObject Version. That's for example to find the variance between plan and actual:

sales volume Version 2 / sales Volume Version 1

The Version values are selected via a Variable.

I want to display in the figure description which Version is divided by the other <b>(Version2/Version1).</b>

The Versions are selected per variable on the variable screen. It is not working with text variables since the operands are restricted on the same characteristics.

Any idea how to get the different Version name in the description?

Any help is highly appreciated.

Thanks and regards

      Hi Christoph Weber,

      As you said we would not get any problem upto text variables on individula RKS. We will get problem with Heder of the Formula(which built on the 2 RKFS). Becuse sytem gets confusion to take the value for Heder of the Formula .It does not know which one has to take.

      So try this :

      For Header text variable, define it as custoer exit variable ,not a simple display of two text variables.

      In the user exit fill the text like this:

      " Value entered for VAR1/Value entered for VAR2".

      With rgds,

    Hi Christoph,

    You certainly should use a customer exit. You can find a lot of examples searching the forum.

    See some examples here:
