Z Report need to start with specific variant



We have created a Z copy of report RFFOEDi1. Then assigned that program to a Z transaction in SE93. We want to be able to start the report (via the Z transaction) with a specific variant so that certain selection fields from the initial screen do not show out when executed. I cannot remove these from the selection screen of the Z program as they are populating from a logical database.

In SE93 I am using option Report Transaction. That option gives me the field 'Start With Variant'. I have created variants on the Z program using the normal SAVE varint option (ie run the Z program in SE38, click the SAVE button, in the popup tick the HIDE option to remove those fields that I don't want shwoing out, SAVE the variant).

However in SE93 those variants are not available as dropdown in the 'Start With variant' field.

Can you please advise if there is a way to pick up the variant of the Z program I have specified in SE38 so that it is the default variant selected when I run the Z transaction assigned to the report?

Thanks for your advice.
