Unable to enter interval values in prompts


Hello Experts,

We are using DS 1.6 SP4 Patch 1 on BI Platform 4.2 SP2 Patch 2. I have an application that uses a BEx query with a mandatory interval variable as a data source. This variable uses a customer exit to pre-populate with the current Fiscal Year/Period but I do not believe that is relevant to this issue. Is it just me or does the standard Prompts dialog not allow a user to enter an "Ends at" value?

I am able to clear the pre-populated date range and select a new "Starts at" value but when I click the Select Ranges button to go back and select an end date I am unable to Add to List; it is grayed out.

I thought maybe a different type of BEx variable would help but it must be a range so no luck there. When the prompt first appears the user can click the text and manually type in a value there without going into the prompt details but this isn't a long term solution. Thank you for any help.
