How to locate a dependent variable?

Hi all,

I've been asked to document the list of variables that have been used in a dimension and then prepare another list that gives the list of dependent variables.

Say for ex: There is this variable ZVAR_LW_LY and this variable is dependent on another variable ZVAR_250. Now how do I find out for every variable as to what its dependent variable is?

I went to SE 37 and used the function module EXIT_SAPLRRS0_001 to find out what variable is dependent on what variable. But could not get any help from there. Please advise if there is any other way to find out.

Thank you.

    if u wish to see where they are used further

    u can select ur variable for e.g. VARIABLE 1

    then in menu hit QUERY

    then hit WHERE USED LIST

    then it will show u any connecting variable which is built on that variable and where it is used

    u can then document this one by one...

    this is tiresome way but it can be useful if u try...
