Changing Selection Criteria in Current DataSources

I am pulling in financial information from BSEG into BW. BSEG is a massive table with a lot more information than I care to pull in for my purposes. I would like to be able to select a range of GL Accounts to pull in, but I cannot find a way to make certain fields available as selection criteria. When I go into "Change DataSource", I can unselect fields, and even select certain fields, but the option for most is grayed out.

How can I make other fields available as selection criteria?

Thanks for the help.

Sean

    Hi Sean,

    You had a good answer, but did you forget to give points? It's a way to say "thanks". In case you weren't sure how to do it, I assigned points this time.

    See: </people/mark.finnern/blog/2004/08/10/spread-the-love for directions.

    Click on the Yellow Star icon in each reply.

    You can give:

    1 - 10 pointer (solves problem, marks as answered)

    2 - 6 pointers (very helpful)

    Lots of 2 pointers (helpful)

    Cheers,

      Sean,

      I think you are not receiving any other feedback, cause this is the solution for your problem !!!

      If you are any doubt, just ask some additional info!

      In this case, you have to create a custom pgm (SE38) 'Z....' and then simply execute it (F8).

      After this, perform a datasource replication in your BW (source system, right-click, replicate datasources) and you will see your field in your infopackage selection tab.

      At your disposal for further information.

      Bye,

      Roberto

    Hi Sean,

    this is pure brutal code....

    SELECT SINGLE * FROM ROOSFIELD

    WHERE OLTPSOURCE = ZBW_BSEG AND

    OBJVERS = 'A' AND

    FIELD = GREYFIELD.

    IF SY-SUBRC = 0.

    ROOSFIELD-SELECTION = 'X'.

    MODIFY ROOSFIELD.

    ENDIF.

    Sean, test this solution to verify if the selection you done works effectivly...

    Hope this helps.

    Bye,

    Roberto

    (remember to click on the star as way to thank !!!)
