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.
