Anyway to let a variable input help only(F4), not for directly key in?

Dear experts,

Is there any way to set an input variable become input-help only?

That is, users can only use F4 to choose the values from the infoprovider, and can't directly key data into that variable.

For example, if users have to input calendar month before query execution,

they have to use F4 to choose months exist in that cube.

They can't directly type any month they want to that variable.

Is there any way to do that?

    Hi Wen,

    For example, if users have to input calendar month before query execution,

    they have to use F4 to choose months exist in that cube.

    yes, this is possible,

    in RSA1-> go to chnage mode of infoprovider (Multiprovider/ cube) on which Query is build) then Expand time Charedteristc Diemension -> on infoobject calender month -> right click and select " provider-specific properties" -> last oprtion 'Query Exec. Filter value' -> select " D only values in Infoprovider"

    save and activate infoprovider and check in selection screen of Query.
