As part of the standard template that we deliver to end users, one of the buttons in the toolbar is a button that allows the user to open the report in a new window. This means they can view the report without all the additional information that portal adds, which is quite useful for large reports.
However, what I have found is one of our templates is not opening correctly, as the variable selection screen appears when the report is transferred to the new window (using TRANSFER_STATE command). For all the other templates, the filter values are remembered, so whatever values were entered on the selection screen, and whatever navigation was performed is transferred to the new window.
The only difference I can see between the templates that work and the one that doesn't, is that the "error" one has a query which in turn has a pre-query.
Is this a SAP bug, or standard behaviour, or something that we can get around?
