Prompt values is Null when selection of Input control value changes

Hello,

I am working on SAP BO 4.1 SP6 and developed Web Intelligence Reports using a certain Universe as a source.

This Report has prompts like From Date, To Date, Division etc. and the Document Properties option "Refresh On Open" is checked. I am displaying the prompt values in Report header using UserResponse() function.

I have created Input Control of Type List Box based on variable "Select Top N" of qualification dimension with value (=""). This Input Control has custom values Top 10, Top 20 and so on.

When I am clicking Input Control value like Top 10, Top 20 the prompt values in Report header changes from user selection values to NULL values although the prompt summary block in Report Header is not dependent on the Input Control.

Kindly help regarding the cause of this issue and any workaround to fix this.

Regards,

Amogh

    Hi Amogh,

    You need to use Reportfilter() function to display the selected value from Input Control in the header. Try this blog.

    Hi,

    I can remember a bug with input controls only if you are setting/writing values yourself (like via defaultvalues).
