Variable selection without context



I am trying to use a variable (Customer Exit, Ready for Input) on an InfoObject to popup a selection on the InfoObject. This selection needs to be accessed in I_STEP 2 by other variables for calculations and lookups. However, I do not want this varibale to affect the Query filter, which is what it ends up doing.

Is there a way to be able to use a "Ready for Input variable" and have its contents removed in the subsequent I_STEPs or will by setting it as "Variable Is Without Context" help?

I have read the SAP definition of this and could not make any sense and selecting this option seems to make no difference in the Query and it still filters on this selection.

Any help would be really appreciated.



FYI, here is the SAP definition and the link:

Variable Is Without Context

If you select the Variable Is Without Context option, you are specifying that the variable can be filled with values independently of an executed query. Examples: Current Day, Current Year


You can set this indicator for exit variables only. This indicator is generally not set for all other variable types; the field is therefore deactivated, that is, all other variables are treated as context-specific.
