CR2008 and SAP BW - Only limited number of values for static parameter

Hello Experts,

we have the following constellation / problem:

- SAP Query BW 7.0 with variables

- a report built upon this query with Crystal Reports 2008

- now if we execute the report and try to fill in the parameters (= SAP BW variables), not all values are displayed for selection and there seems to be no possibility to further scroll down; e.g. the months 01.1993-08.2006 are displayed, but not later than 08.2006

This is really a problem for us since the users won´t be able to select e.g. the desired time range !

I read already the SAP notes 1218588 and 1211902 and I 'implemented' 1211902, but still only a few values are displayed (the same as before I changed the values for BrowseTimeout and MaxNBrowseValues). Besides that, in the solutions in the SAP notes Crystal Reports 2008 is not explicitly mentioned (so I manually created the DWORD-keys).

Many thanks for your help in advance !

    Hi Frank

    The value is limited to 200 by default but can be amended.

    Back up the registry then change the MaxPickListSize Paramater in HKEY\LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Business Objects\Suite 12.0\BWQueryReportWrapper
