WAD - 'POSTED VALUES' in a web item

I have a report that shows material information for multiple materials. It is based on a variable (multiple values) that the user enters in the variable screen. I also have a dropdown box. The user after viewing the information for the 3 or 4 materials that he has input in the variable screen should select one of them from the dropdown box and then a new template with a more detailed report pops up. So, the dropdown box should be populated by the 3 or 4 characteristic values that the user selected in the variable screen.

I thought if you used BOOKED VALUES = Q for the web item, that should take care of it. But, the drop down still is populated by all the thousands of values in the data provider. Does anybody see what the problem is ? Any input is appreciated.

Deepak.

    Hi Deepak,

    how many data providers you have got in your webtemplate?

    Check in your html-code:

    - name of the DATA_PROVIDER

    - IOBJNM of the dropdownbox must be the same you have selected in the variable screen.

    - value="Q" for parameter name BOOKED_VALUES.

    <object>

    <param name="OWNER" value="SAP_BW"/>

    <param name="CMD" value="GET_ITEM"/>

    <param name="NAME" value="DROPDOWNBOX_1"/>

    <param name="ITEM_CLASS" value="CL_RSR_WWW_ITEM_FILTER_DDOWN"/>

    <param name="DATA_PROVIDER" value="DATAPROVIDER_1"/>

    <param name="IOBJNM" value="myInfoObject"/>

    <param name="BOOKED_VALUES" value="Q"/>

    ITEM: DROPDOWNBOX_1

    </object>

    But it sounds like a bug...

    Try OSS note 736603.

    Thanks Jens!

    I did check out the OSS note that you suggested. But, eventually, I worked around the problem by coming up with a html control of my own. I used hidden sap filters to get the current filter consitions on the data provider and populated them into my control using javascript code. Again after the user makes his selections, I use javascript to send back the parameters to the data provider and eventually to the target URL. It was a workaround, but, it works.

    Deepak.
