BEx: New Variable not appearing in list of variables that can be used for replacement path

Hi,

I created a characteristic value variable for one date characteritic that is ready for manual input. I need to copy the value of this variable to another date characteristic so that the user doesn't have to enter the same date into two prompts during query execution. So, I thought of using a replacement path variable.

However, when I try to create the replacement path variable, the list of the variables which I can use as the source of the replacement path doesn't include the first characteristic value variable that I created.

Is there anything that I missed with the first variable that I created?

The BW instance is new so I don't know if there should have been a config that I should have done for the BEx variables.

Please help. Thanks!

Regards, Chard

    Richard,

    Why don't you try with Customer Exit variable.

    You can follow the below steps -

    • Create a customer Exit variable for the Date Charatceristic.
    • Go to CMOD -> < Create Project> -><Select Enhancement - RSR00001>-> <Assign component - EXIT_SAPLRRS0_001 > -> <Include ZXRSRU01>
    • In the Include define the logic for 2nd Variable[Customer Exit Variable] by readin the 1st Date Characteristic Value and appending the value to the result structure.

    Hi,

    Issue is interesting.

    - Talking about 2nd variable with processing type. What is the reference characteristic you chosen. Is it 0DATE or 0CALDAY.

    - Under Replacement path - Replace with - Key. What you have chosen.
