Hiding a row in selection screen

Dear All,

I have the selection screen of my query. Now i have 4-5 rows in it. I need to hide one particular row in that which takes its values directly from the exit variable.

Do let me know how to make something like this work.

I cannot personalize this particular field as i have to do it for all my users and not just for me.

And i cannot avoid this thing from my screen also as need to have it.

Do let me know if somebody has worked over some situation like this and found a solution.

Thanks,

Dennis

    Hi Dennis,

    You can edit that certain variable in the BEx Designer by unclicking the Ready for Input Checkbox in the variable properties. If you unclick this, it will not show on the selection screen anymore.

    Hope this helps,

      Dennis,

      Its better to go for a variable which is note ready for input. Replace the existing variable which is ready for input with the new one. Ofcourse, you should go to all the queries and change the variable, but this is the best practice in your case.

      And still if you want to suppress/hide the existing variable input from the selection screen, you should think of authorizations, or displaying a default value based upon authorization, or make it populate only valid values for a particular set of users which is once again based on authorizations whatever value the user enters.

      Hope you got my point................
