In desktop intelligence a variable is anything whose value is determined at the time of user input. You therefore define one by the following:

@variable('Prompt Text') eg. @variable('Please Enter Account number'). When this has been done in your free hand query, A prompt will pop up that will ask for an account number when you refresh the report.

I hope this helps you.

Business Objects creates SQL to pass to the database, how can I see this being passed to the database.

When BO has @variable in its code it does not parse to Ingres correctly.

you can use @variable also to get the global business objects variables

like if you want to send the current user login ID and who is currently running this report based on this universe to the datase for example or you want to put it in a dimension and many of other businss objects variables

good luck
