Report Designer - Query with variable

Hi!

When testing the report designer, we have found an issue - itÂ’s not possible to embedding queries with variables.

We have found note https://websmp107.sap-ag.de/~form/sapnet?_FRAME=CONTAINER&_OBJECT=012006153200000232982006

that suggest a solution to the issue.

My question is simply, does anyone know if this is a temporary fix, or is this a constraint that is not planned to be fixed by SAP? The note is a bit ambiguous.

    Hi,

    I don't know details about the variable feature you mentioned but my investigation on Report Designer showed also several other "bugs" - meaning features described partly in SAP Help but not (yet) available) and more missing features like e.g.

    - merging of cells not possible

    - page setup in pixel, ruler in cm

    - no information about position / coordinates of single cells

    - no undo function

    - no rotation of cell content

    - no drag and drop for more than one cell

    - no formatting of frame style (double line, colour, bold)

    - no zoom function

    My impression is that the Report Designer is a kind of beta version. For formatted reporting Excel is still more powerful and I recommended my customer not to use Report Designer under the current circumstances.

    BR
