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

Neel

    Hi Neel Kamal,

    You had run the Query to run by Default for the current Year.But Doesnt allow you to change later For that, i suggest to create Z object for Fiscal year and variable for it, and putit in the Freecharaterics for Navigation.

    So user have the option to navigate after Query execution.

    Not a Bad Idea i believe.

    Hi,

    Are you specifying this restriction in the characteristic restrictions area in the query? Those restrictions cannot be changed during query navigation. You should give the restriction in the default values area.
