BEx – restrict on value Key Figure via variable on ‘entry variable screen’?


I have a requirement to let the user restrict the records BEx returns via a variable on the u2018entry variable screenu2019. It is not a restriction on a characteristic though, but on a key figure formula.

In the column of the query I created a formula called u2018Days of Coverageu2019 (based on 2 key figures). The user only wants to see materials in the report that have less than x days of coverage. The way I solved it was:

- Created a formula variable (manual input)

- Created a condition on the formula in which I use the variable (values between 0 and variable)

When the condition is activated the user only sees the required records. Only problem is that on that (input ready) query I have an Integrated Planning function that has as filter the query itself. Problem with the used condition is that even if it is activated, the Integrated Planning function still selects all records so even the ones that are not shown on the screen. This is because via a condition although the records are not shown they are selected by the query.

My question is now, is there any way of filtering the data presented by the query via variable (that user can enter via variable screen) directly on the value of a key figure (so also not via a characteristic variable) that does NOT involve a condition?
