    you need to create your own DD-Box using HTML coding.

    If the used characteristics are fixed you could code like :

    <form action="<SAP_BW_URL item='DD_ITEM'>">

    <select name="IOBJNM">

    <option value="0CUSTOMER">Customer</option>

    <option value="0PRODUCT">Product</option>



    with DD_ITEM the logical name of your Drop-Down-Box. Then the attribute IOBJNM of the item DD_ITEM will be changed once this form is posted. Also you could code on the onchange event of the <select> tag to fire the command when the drop-Down-Box is changed.

    Please see for more example coding.

    If the characteristics can not be defined in the Web Template, then you would need to use some javascript Coding (using function SAPBWGetDataProviderDimensions)
