Variable Offseting


Dear Experts,

I have a scenario where in my query i have restricted Fiscal Year with a variable and in the key figures i am using the Variable offseting to get previous year and YTD previous year and current year.

When i run the query the variable screen pops up and user enters a value like say 2009 (current fiscal year) and then the query generates the results by adjusting as per offset created on variable.

But i want the query to run by default for Current year so the first popup of variable screen doesn't popup and once the query runs the user can change the value of the year as per his liking.

So the basic need is to run the query with a default value and then change.

i tried to default value it runs fine but doesn't allow me to change it later in the web query by using the list box with variable as option.

Any workaround.

thanks and regards
