Default value from SAP BW User Exit Var. + Universe + WebI


When running a report I need to default fiscal period to the current fiscal year to date e.g. set it to 01.2009 to 03.2009. The user can then change these values if say they want to report on periods 01.2009 to 02.2009.

With SAP BW BEx I would use a user exit variable and determine the from and to values. I've done this in the BEx query and I am now trying to get the same report reporting using WebI but when it prompts me for fiscal period on executing the WebI report no default values appear.

I'm using SAP BI 7.0 with Business Objects Web Intelligence XI 3.1

I've been trying any number of different settings for "delegate" etc. when defining the universe but can't get user exits which determine the default, which a user can then overwrite to work.
