    Dear Raki,

    Kindly check if this will be of help..

    From SAP Help:

    "Using Variables: The Variable Wizard and the Variable"

    http://help.sap.com/saphelp_bw33/helpdata/en/f1/0a5a2ee09411d2acb90000e829fbfe/frameset.htm

    Examples:

    Look for "Examples for using Variables" under the same category.

    From SDN's How-To Guide Example:

    https://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/servlet/prt/portal/prtroot/docs/library/uuid/72f4a790-0201-0010-5b89-a42a32223ffc

    Thanks..

    Hi Raki,

    Char Var are used to create pop-up for selection of char values for restrct/filter query content: for example you can create a variable on Cost Center to select one or some of these when executing a query.

    Text Var are used to substitute the header column text with the value of the variable selected for the query: for example you can create a text variable on CALMONTH and insert it in Column, so when you execute the query on a particular month the corresponding column will have in header the month you selected in a dynamic way.

    Hier Var are used to select a particular Hier for the selected Char. You can also create Node Hier Var to select single nodes of the single hier.

    Formula Var are used in particular to obtain values from attributes of a Master Data Char and also to determine Formula on these values: example with Data in Master Data, you can extract this date and make differences with another date stored in cube.

    Look in www.service.sap.com/bi and search for variables, you will find a lot of documents.

    Ciao.

    Riccardo.
