reversing the variable values

Hi all,

I posted this question a while back but couldnt get the answers, can some body take a look at it. Hopefully u may be able to help me with it.

When the user gets to the variable screen of calweek and tries to select the value for the variable, the value selection list starts from 01.1997. In order to get to the 1st week of 2005, it takes the user to browse thru 5 to 10 pages to get to the latest values(latest week).

Is there a way, where we can reverse the selection values .. i mean, is there any setting where we can let the user see the latest values .. i.e., in descending order of the variable values. it would be that, the first selection screen would have values starting from the latest week(04.2005) to the old values dating back to 1997.

Any help or pointer would be helpful.

Thanks,

Mav

    Hi Mav!

    The values from the master data table are normally displayed when you restrict characteristics.

    For characteristics without a master data table (as your 0CALWEEK), the values from the SID table are displayed instead. In your case, it could be better to display only the values that are in the infoprovider (I hope you don't have 1997 data...) with the setting "InfoProvider Values Only"...

    I onestly don't know if there is some way to modify F4 program logic...but I'm not so confident...

    Otherwise, try to put your own default values with I_STEP '1'....

    Hope it helps !

    Bye,

    Roberto
