Ability to re-order Key Figures - BeX versus Web

Former Member

Hi all,

We are seeing a difference in query behavior for the same query between BeX and Web.

BeX: I am able to change the order of my key figures, right click and select 'Filter Key Figures", change the order, hit Apply.

Web: I take the same actions, but the changes are not applied to the report. I.e. the order of the key figures is not affected.

We are assuming perhaps there is a web template parameter that governs this behavior, but have not been able to find it. The behavior is consistent for ALL our queries displayed on the web.

Any input or advice would be appreciated.

Best regards,

Eric Steinmetz

After you change the order of keyfigure using ''Filter Key Figures' , you need to perform the following

step which will change the order of keyfigure.

Goto to Keyfigure column , right click and select Properties -> Characteristics

Then you get pop-up 'Properties of Keyfigure(result set context).

Under 'Sorting' tab -> select the below options'

Sort direction  ->  Ascending

Sort by -> Selection

This will change the order.

Have you tried drag and drop to reorder the key figures?
