How to hide a variable in the query?

Hello everyone,

I don't know if my framing would be correct but i would like to explain my problem first. I have a query with a variable in the result but with defaulted values. I don't want this variable to pop up when i am running a report. I don't want the users to know that this has been defaulted or i just feel it unnecessary for them to see this variable. So is there a way to avoid it or hide it. Ex: i have a varible with Cal day and Plant as optional variables and the third is Document number which i defaulted from 500 to 599 but i don't want this to popup while running the query or refreshing the report. Just fyi this variable has been used in the columns part as a selection with one key figure and one characteristic.

Hope i am clear,

Would surely appreciate any of your comments.

    Hi Anjali,

    Modify the document number variable and uncheck the "<b>Ready for Input</b>" check box. This will not display the Document number variable to the user.

    Hope this helps.
