Compounding of values for 0fiscyear in WAD drop down list.

Dear Friends,

We are using BI7.00 with NW2004S. For one of our FI report, we have created variable for fiscal year to set offset value for achieving the previous year balance.

This variable is not mandatory and hence user will select value for this variable after execution of the report in WAD.

The variable is called in the data binding of the web item -> drop down box.

When the report is published in WAD and when the drop down box is clicked, instead of fiscal year for example 2007, 2008 etc., the characters are displayed as mentioned below.

Apr-March,4 special periods 2004,Number of days:365,Number of Workdays:313,Valid from :01.04.2004,Valid to :31.03.2005.

Regards,

M.M

    Hello,

    Check whether the relevant field is assigned to the drop down box and also the data binding in the property window as well.

    There are many options in data binding and try Fixed List of Options.

    Hi Magesh,

    when you click drill down for fiscal year, all the attributes will also display for fiscal year.

    In order not to show them on the report selection you need to select 00 value on Order for F4 help field on the attributes of fiscal year.

    But be cautious if this is done, it will effect all the reports.

    SAP Documentation for this Order for F4 Help

    Order of the Attributes for the Value Help

    This field defines whether and where the attribute should appear in the value help.

    Valid values:

    00: The attribute does not appear in the value help.

    01: The attribute appears at the first position (to the left) in the value help.

    02: The attribute appears at the second position in the value

    help.

    03: ......

    Altogether, only 40 fields are permitted in the input help. In addition to the attributes, the characteristic itsel, its texts, and the compounded characteristics are also generated in the input help. The total number of these fields cannot exceed 40.

    Thanks

    Vamsi
