filters for Data Manager packages

Hi,

I have a Data Manager TD_EXPORT_TO_FILE package in BPC NW 10. I have removed the prompts and am hard coding the dimension selections. Currently I do this with a list of members as shown here.

INFO(%SELECTION%,/FINANCE_LATROBE/FINANCE/PRIVATEPUBLICATIONS/CSTINSON/TempFiles/FROM.TMP@@@SAVE@@@@@@EXPAND@@@|DIMENSION:ACCOUNT||DIMENSION:AUDITTRAIL|AT_BALANCESHEET_PLAN|DIMENSION:COSTCENTRE||DIMENSION:FUNCTIONAL_AREA||DIMENSION:PROFITCENTRE||DIMENSION:PROJECT_TYPE||DIMENSION:RPTCURRENCY|AUD|DIMENSION:TIME|2020.001,2020.002,2020.003,2020.004,2020.005,2020.006,2020.007,2020.008,2020.009,2020.010,2020.011,2020.012|DIMENSION:VERSION|BV2_2020|DIMENSION:WBSELEMENT)

The help tell me I can use a filter as shown here.

INFO(%SELECTION%, //APSHELL_DAVY75_MIT/PLANNING/PrivatePublications/I045795/TempFiles/FROM.TMP@@@SAVE@@@@@@EXPAND@@@|DIMENSION:CATEGORY|[FILTER: FILTER_NAME]|DIMENSION:ENTITY||DIMENSION:P_ACCT||DIMENSION:P_ACTIVITY||DIMENSION:P_DATASRC||DIMENSION:RPTCURRENCY||DIMENSION:TIME||)

This seems to say that by setting a filter, I can make multiple selections rather than listing them one by one. However, the help provides no examples of what a "filter_name: represents. I have tried using properties such as LEVEL=MONTH and also tried hierarchical relationships such as BAS(2020.TOTAL) but these have not selected any data. Can somebody point me at examples of how a dimension filter is to be used?

Thanks

Cliff

    1. To use filter you have to save it:

    And you can only filter by property!

    2. Unfortunately filters are user dependent - another user will not see your filter!

    Alternative can be a simple custom logic badi that will export incoming scope to the text file. Then you can define scope in script logic before badi call.

    Theoretically it's possible to copy filter defined for one user to all users (and to repeat copy for all new users later) with a simple abap program...
