BPS Variables

Hi there

May somebody help me with the following problem: I have two variables in a BPS package and I want the second variable to show only these entries/values which are possible to select according to the combinations which are in the cube or maybe in the reference data. eg. i have the two variables, controlling area and cost center. so when I select a controlling area, I want the cost center variable only to give me these cost centers for selection which are in the selected cost area. as it's possible in BEX.

Thank's

    If my understanding is right, you wish to display only cost centeres for the controlling area that is seleted in the package / level?

    1. You define first variable for controlling area of type characteristic and replaced by user selection.

    2. Second variable cost center with replacement type exit.

    To populate the values in the cost center vraiable you need to write exit.

    There isa how to on Service marker place. Just follow the code and adopt to your requirements.

      Hi Ravi

      First thanks.

      If my understanding of the How To BPS Variables of Type Exit is right, then what I'm looking for is descript in chapter 1.4 / 3.6 "One variable restricts the selection of another variable". But therefore in my exemple controlling area had to be a master data attribute of cost center. But my problem is that one costcenter can be in different controlling areas, so i can't define the controlling area as a master data attribute of costcenter. So can i still use this exit variable? May someone is working with the BI-content in this issue and can give me an input from there?

      Thanks again.

    Hi,

    As per the value of a variable u can set variable value for another one.

    Suppose var1 - region1

    u can set variable for var2 as country1 country2 country3 etc...

    U have to go for EXIT type of variable and code for it.

    Thanks,

    Debasish

    Martin,

    You can still use the exits.

    Because your requirement is to let the users see only the cost centers associated with a controlling area when they choose a controlling area.

    But, still you need to make some analysis and speak with your R/3 team as to why they have such a scenario. Usually, we make controlling area in the header and it is unique and only controlling area is assgined to a cost center and hence maintained as attribute of cost center. This is the case with most implementations. But requirements are never the same.

    To sum it up, you can use the same exit.
