    Hi Suja.....

    I think itis possible...Do in the same way as we does in the R3 side.

    1-Run the profile creation transaction....in recording

    mode

    2-save the recording and retrive the program for that one.

    3-change the relevant fields necessary....

    execute it..

    Check it whether it works or not.....

    Regards

    KK

    Thanks a lot.

    Have you tried this?

    I did everything that is mentioned in the document. I can also see the profile generated successfully. But when I run the report is doesnt apply the necessary restriction.

    I created a cube which has material,customer,invoice,date and 2 measures.I restricted Material to a single value as explained in the document.In Su01 it shows the correct values.But the query still runs for all the material values. I have omitted the heirarchy part of this document.Would that be the reason?

    Any input on this would be veryh helpful. Thanks again.

      Make sure you have created an authorization variable for the characteristic you are securing by and use that in your query. You do not have to do the hierarchy part if you are not securing on hierarchy and hierarchy nodes.

      Thanks,
