Prompt in WebI Report needs to show Key and Text



I'm using the following:

- SAP BI release 701 SP 5

- BO XI 3.1 - Integration Kit for SAP 12.0

How can I define my filter's prompt function so in a WebI report the prompt values show me both Key and Text?

From a BEx query we have generated a universe, which contains filters generated from the BEx variables.

When I run a WebI report straight from the generated universe, my prompt values will show both Key and Text (or Name and Caption if you prefer). This is great functionality for user input.

However, if I modify the universe and I want to reorganize the classes, rename the dimensions or change the filters so the prompt functions contain default values, the functionality of displaying both Key and Text disappears almost every time.

Only the text remains (which comes from the object defined in the [lov] parameter of the prompt).

Does anybody know the right requirements for the dimensions, filters and prompt functions so that when running a WebI report the prompt values show both Key and Text?

Thanks in advance for your reply!
