Variable Screen of Web Template iView

Deployed Web Template iView to Portal. But when ever i click on the link of the web template iview in the navigation panel in portal. Variable screen comes up first which is mandatory. Is there some way in the web application designer that i fill up the mandatory variable screen with values through some ABAP table interface or by using text elements web item without letting variable selection screen show up initially in the portal.

I cant make those variable values default by going in BEx because those varaibles are global variables and getting used in many queries.

Any help will be appreciated.

    If you are into a bit of development you can check this blog. I had used it once for crystal reports integration.

    The customer exit of the Application Integrator

    The application parameters field in the BEx iViews can be retrieved dynamically.

    Im not sure if this exactly fits your requirement. But it might help though.

    We've just implemented a NetWeaver 2004s system, and these hints may help you out:

    1. In the Web Application Designer, there is a property on the web template which determines whether the variable screen is displayed or not. Therefore, you could uncheck that checkbox, and the variable selection screen won't be shown.

    2. As to defaulting values in the selection screen ... we have used ABAP code to default values in variables. I think it was done in the start routine. The code we have implemented works, but then we present the variable selection screen to the user, so I can see that certain values (like date for example) are defaulted. I am not sure what happens if you default these values and then don't present the selection screen ... assume it would work for you though. Check on SDN and find out about pre-popup ABAP code for queries, I am sure you will be able to find something that helps you out.
