Multiple default values for Selection type variable

Hi all,

I am using Bex 3.5. I have a fundamental doubt while creating a User Entry, Selection Option, Optional type variable. I am trying to include multiple single variables in the default section, but it accepts only one. Is it possible to add multiple default values to the variable so that they show up in the selection screen when we run the report via Bex Analyzer ?

Thanks for the inputs !

Regards

Snehith.

    Hello Sneith...

    To the best of my knowledge, a Bex 3.x variable cannot have multiple default values. You could conceivably create an Exit variable that would do this, but that violates the assumed requirement to allow the end user to change the default values to something else.

    I would recommend you use variants, if that is possible for your end user interface.

    Hi,

    In one of my bi7 reports, i remember i have given multiple default values in a single variable. For example i wanted to have multiple material types in my selection screen.

    But i have to check out the type of that user entry variable.

    Hope the above reply was helpful.

    Kind regards,

    You have to use BEx Query Designer 7.0. This is not possible without relying on a user exit in the old 3.x Query Designer. This is one reason among many other subtle (and undocumented) reasons to begin using the 7.0 Query Designer.
