How to freeze drill down for a selected period in Bex analyzer


I have a requirement from business.

In bex report there is a one key figure column " YTD: Out Standing Balance".

This column fills the data based on the Open on key date as a cumulative figure since from the beginning to till key date.

Issue is when i am doing drill down by invoice date ,it is occupying so many rows and finally it is throwing error (saying that it is trying to extract more than the specified limitation) because of huge data.

Now we convinced the business and they requested to display only current year drill down for invoice date.

at the same time they want to see the summary level value for all the previous years.

Any one please suggest the solution to fix this issue.

Thanks in Advance.

    Once you drill down Invoice date into the report for YTD it will display detail levle info and same will be applicable to Previous years .

    i.e we can 't show summary info fro previous years if we drill down with invoice data in the same report .

    Better create two reports one for summary & one for details.
