Prompts on BW Compounding Objects when using BICS

All,

I have an issue where the list of values are not displayed correctly for the prompts that are built on BW Compounding objects. Lets say if I have an object called State and that is compounded with Country. In BW when I create a variable on State the way it displays the list of values is it will have two columns one for country and one for state so that you know what country does that state belong to. But when the same variable is used in webi it only displays state.

Reply's will be appreciated.

Thanks,

    Correct, the list of values is only for one object. For similar restrictions, see here:

    Taking a closer look with your example:

    In BEx the list of values for state could also have the country in a different column, but after selecting a value in BEx for State, you will see only the state being inserted in the variable box, which in turn is exactly the same behaviour comparing to webi, only taking the state into account.
