Input Field: Value Range in IP Web Layout

Hi Experts,

I've created a Web Layout based on IP with a copy function (e.g. from actual 2008 to plan2009) over 12 calendar months. For choosing the months to be copied, I created a Variable (calmonths) and added an Input Field into my layout to enter the the months to be copied. I referred the variable to the input field and it's working...

When I want to select several months to be copied, I can type in " 1; 2; 3; " into the input field, execute the planning function and only month 1, 2, 3 (i.e. Jan, Feb, Mar) are being copied. But when I want to copy all 12 months, i have to enter 1; 2; 3; 4;...11; 12 which is kind of anoying! Has somebody some experience whether I can use a value range like 1-12 (or something like that) to avoid entering all the months individually? (I tried 1-12; 1- 12; 1 - 12; 1:12 etc but nothing like this is working)

It would be very helpful if someone has an idea 😊

All the best,

Norbert

    Did you try using a variable of type 'value range'?

    Hi,

    You should be able to find the variable of type 'Value Range' in the type of variable drop- down.. This will help out.

    • Hi Srinivas,

      you are right, I could also do this by entering the month March by 3 - 3. But what we wanted to do is being able to enter single values and also a value range at one into the input field, e.g. 1; 3-5; 11-12.

      Right now I got to see, that some characteristics (such as calmonth) are not supporting an interval-section... But I'm able to execute the planning function with one ⚠️ interval and several single values (3 - 7; 1; 11) but not if I only enter an interval section (3 - 7). Here I have to enter it the following way: 3 - 6; 7. Strange, but this is how the system tells me.

      Best regards,

      Norbert
