Bex Variable PopUp does not come up launching Xcelsius dashboard


I integrated an Xcelsius dashbord with SAP BI 7.01 (EHP1). The BI query does have a mandatory variable.

When the dashboard is launched in the SAP Portal runtime, I´m getting an error message saying,

One or more mandatory variables of query ZA_ZIT_QM_ZA_QMM02_003 not filled.

My expectation was to get an popup like in Bex Web asking for the variable value.

Any comments ideas how to get variable popup?

Thanks and Regards,

    Hi Mario.

    I presume you can run the query outside Xcelsius with variable popup working i.e. no popup blockers like Google toolbar active?

    Have you tried running the dashboard with the 'Use Default Query Data' in the BW connection options?

    I recommend this usefull document:

    How to Build Fast and Efficient DashBoards Using the New NetWeaver BW Integration in SAP BusinessObjects Xcelsius(

    Check if you really want/need the variable popup.

    I've gotten the exact same error as well and decided to skip the variable pop up alltogether and run my dashboard in a 'stateless execution' mode(URL parameter: &XC_MODE=X) as described in the document.

    I'm using Xcelsius components to choose/feed the variable values and instead of the 'Refresh before components are loaded' -option in the BW Connection I have a separate Connection Refresh Button with option 'Refresh after components are loaded' -option set to get initial values and a combo box with some excel logic to feed my calyear and a calmonth range.

    I also recommend browsing thru this document:

    How to Efficiently Use the New SAP NetWeaver BW Integration in SAP BusinessObjects Xcelsius(

    Hope you get your dashboard running.

    Best regards,

      Hi Edwin Xi,

      We have same issue but not variable screen problem. .

      Problem was: In BEx Queries we populating 100% values and we connect queries to dashboard(componet is List view) and Dashboard values are showing accurately in portal before patching - SP5.

      After patching SP8 the 100% showing like 10000% in portal. I have check all sceniros its not working properly and we have one more server the patching is not at done but Dasboard showing 100% values in portal.

      Is this patching problem or Dashboard is not compactable version for this patch.

      Please suggest on this.
