    Hi Afzal,

    From the script code you have provided, it looks like all you are doing is launching the OpenDoc link of the Design Studio application without actually passing any application-specific URL parameters. I suggest you review the following tutorial to understand the process for implementing URL parameters: Pass URL Parameters Between Applications

    • You should check that the correct value is being passed in the variable X_BU. You can test this by adding a TEXT component and setting its value to X_BU in the On Startup script of the application.

      Also, how and when is the dropdown being populated?
