    Hi BHARGAVA,

    a good introduction can be found in the blog of Ryan Goodman.

    [http://ryangoodman.net/blog/index.php/2007/09/26/flash_variables_in_xcelsius]

    Flash variables are not applicable for the BICS-Interface with SAP BW queries. This interface allows just a small set of flash-variables:

    the end point URL "BICSWS_ENDPOINT"

    the dashboard language "BICSWS_LANGUAGE"

    decimal, thousand, date and time separator characters : "BICSWS_DECIMAL", "BICSWS_THOUSANDSEPARATOR", "BICSWS_DATESEPARATOR", "BICSWS_TIMESEPARATOR"

    Best regards,

    Sebastian
