BI for NW04S: Concatenating multiple chars into one field in BI query

Hi,

We have BI for NW04S. We have a requirement of concatenating multiple characteristics into one field in the BI report. This single field should have the usual drill down and other olap functionalities that a single characteristic usually enjoy in a BI report.

In BI for NW04 (Not the S) this probably can be done using the table interface in WAD. However in BI7 WAD functionality are through Java.

Also can this be done using Query designer alone.

Can anybody help?

Thanks

    Hi,

    This can't be accomplised using query designer. You will need to do it in the backend while loading data - create a new characteristic and populate it by concatenating the required fields.

    Hi,

    We can write a routine if you have ABAP knowlege ,then concatinate the ch's to a single field.

    or at the QD end if you want to do that way ....you have to go to the exit create a new variable on the characteristic and assign the concatination of the ch's to that variable.

    Hope it will work.

      Hi,

      Can you please elaborate on your Query designer option. You can always have a variable and in the user exit can write code, but what is not clear that

      1> How will you acheive the contatenation done for every row of the report in the BEX user exit variable( since it's called during the beginning of the query execution and not for all rows of the report

      2> How do you transfer the char variable into a char field in the report.

      Please elaborate .

      Thanks
