How can I switch to Longtext in a variable selection box for entered value

I execute a Web Template and enter a value for example a company variable. After this I press the "Check"-Button and get the short text of the company but I want to see the long text.

The InfoObject settings under Business Explorer is:

Display: Text

Text Type: Default

BEx Description: Long description

Selection: No Selection Restriction

Query Def. Filter Value Selection: Values in Master Data Table

Query Execution Filter Val. Selectn: Values in Master Data Table

Filter Value Rep. At Query Exec.: Selector Box Without Values

The InfoObject is a reference characteristic and the query was created on BEx 3.5.

    Change text type: Long text

    also check to see the properties of referenced infoobject and change that if needed.

      I changed the text type to long text, but the result is the same.

      The only way to get the desired result is to delete the short text and the middle text in the InfoObjects Text Table Properties. But this is not right way.
