Relative reference in SAP Business By Design

Hi Experts,

The below report shows up data when I directly give the value for fiscal year and accounting period. However they are not showing up (No report data available to display; Check the selection) when I relatively reference value such as "Current Fiscal Year" and "Year to Date" for fiscal year and accounting period.

The key figures CA_BUDGET_V1, CA_FORECAST_V1 and

CA_FORECAST_V2 are restricted key figures.

Kindly let me know where I am going wrong. Thanks

    Dear Sai

    I can see that the company is based in Australia & the selection "Current Fiscal Year " would mean 2016.

    It seems you have not entered any data in 2016.

    You have entered data in 2017 & hence when you make the selection 2017 & the accounting period 5 the system is giving you an output whereas it is not giving you an error otherwise.

    • Thanks Harshal for your valuable assistance.

      But I am pretty sure 2017 is the current fiscal year and it is getting selected whenever I use the standard key figure group.

      I tried to give current fiscal year as the default value for the variable and encountered the below error message

      So I am hoping that relative selects can only be used if any of the standard key figure group is used in the system. I might be 100% wrong, but this is what I am inferring from that error message.

      And as expected it works fine with standard key figure group.
