Hide compounded attribute in selection

Hi all,

In my query I have a selection variable on InfoOjbect 0FUNDS_CTR (Fund center). This InfoObject has the compounded attribuut 0FM_AREA (FM area).

In my query I have a filter on FM area with the value 15. If I want to enter a Fund center in the selection screen of the query (e.g. 3700) I get the error message: 'Please enter a value for 0FM_AREA'. Also the input field for Fund center shows: #/3700. If I enter 15/3700 the value is correct.

Is it possible that the user enters only the value 3700 and not 15/3700?

Thanks.

Regards,

Paul

    please see how the variable is defined. What value is it expecting?

    Try and change the variable to accept the value as u require.

    Hi,

    It doesnu2019t make much sense if you do not include the superior object of compounding in the selection screen. Because that superior object along with the actual object will uniquely identify the exact record to be shown in the report output.

    For that to happen, you can create one more selection variable on the compounding object and use it in selection screen.

    This will certainly solve your issue.

    Thank you for your reply.

    The issue is that the variable is defined as a hierarchy node variable. If I use a characteristic value variable, I do not have to enter 15/3700, but then I can enter 3700.

    Adding a new selection variable on the compounded object, does not solve the issue.

    Any idea?

    Thanks.
