Report writer ( Parameter id )



We have some reports in report writer and our client requirement is Default fiscal year should not be based on calendar date, 

2 . Fiscal year default should be centrally maintained with the possibility for each user to set their own default value for fiscal year .

Solution provide i provided was

1. Define a value variable ( GS12) for the Fiscal year with parameter id and the parameter id GJR

2. Each user can define their own fiscal year in SU3 for parameter id GJR

Issue is

The reports are picking up the fiscal year I have saved in my GJR parameter ID, but if I change the fiscal year on the selection screen for any one of the reports, the next time I run the report it is picking up that fiscal year and not the one in the parameter ID. Plus all the other reports pick up the same fiscal year and not the one in the parameter ID. Only when exit and log back in do the reports pick up the fiscal year saved in the parameter ID.

For eg the in SU3 GJR is defined as 2014 and when i run th report and chnage the fiscal year to 2013 . Next time when i run any other report writer report it fiscal year is defaulted to 2013 not 2014 defined in SU3 .

Is there any way we could provide the solution or do we have any indicator in the parameter id which will pick the defined value in SU3.
