How to use 2 Dropdown box in webapplication for date range selection

Dear all,

I am working on a report that will show 2 drop down boxes. These should be used as a date range.

This works fine if I use 2 variables as a date range on 0CALYEAR. However I dont want the user to fill in the dates but selecting the dates with 2 drop down boxes.

I cannot manage to get this to work. I saw some comments about user exits in the forum but I cannot figure it out if there is an easier way.

Could you give me an idea of what to do?

Thanks a lot,

Andreas

    Hi,

    If you want the user to select the date directly rather than entering, you need not to have a dropdown menu in WAD. Directly go to the query which you have selected for the object in WAD, there create a variable with calendar. Put it mandatory, so that the user selection of the date will be mandatory. The variable will be automatically be available when you execute the template inn the browser.

    Assign points if this helps u.

    Regards,

    Koundinya.

    Hi Koundinya,

    Thanks for you answer 😊

    The variable with entry is what I have at the moment but I need to have a pull down or something similar to that, where the user can switch the date during the query.

    I really dont know how to solve that.
