Bex input variable that is not a filter


I'm currently working on a query for which i want to implement a swich 'show current week' Y/N '. This should be a variable that is not connected to an infoobject. I dont want it to filter, i just want a value i can read-out in another user-exit variable that implements the logic to select last week or not.

Does anyone know how i can get a y/n value in the selectionscreen without actually filtering on the data?

    Create a test variable ready for Input. Create a restricted or calculated key figure in teh Query and Hide it.

    Now use this Text Variable in teh description of the hiddedn Keyfigure.

    This way it will not apply any filter. But since we use the Text variable the user may input anything. To restrict the user input only Y or N , the variable must be based on the charecteristics and to avoid it filtering data use it in the restricted keyfigure hidden.

    Hope this helps.
