Customer Exit Variable for Fiscal Week

Hi All,

I have a fiscal week variable in the selection screen of my query and users enter the value of the current fiscal week. Now I am broadcasting this workbook and I have a problem here.

I want this variable to get automatically filled with the current fiscal week number whenever it runs in the background in info broadcaster. I know a customer exit variable will solve this. But,

My Question: I want to know if I replace this with automatic update variable, will the users still have the fiscal week variable in the selection screen. I want to know if we can have this variable automatically updating every week when info broadcaster runs and also users manually inputting variable value when they want look at some past data.

Thanks in advance.

    In BI 7

    Create a variant for your query.

    Now write a progam to update your variant in table RSRVARIANT.

    In your case fiscal week needs to be updated.Schedule this program to run just before broadcasting the query to the user.

    Hope this helps.
