Hi Srinivas

You will have to create a variable on "Business Unit" with the processing type "Authorization". With this, when the user runs the query, the values for business units would be picked from user's authorisation.

You can also refer following help link -

Hope this helps.

I did that before, its only checks for the users authorization and its not giving a chance to select it from the selection scree for example

Business Unit: 10000


Like that in Business unit selection screen user should only get what he is authorized to.

so pls let me know how to do that

Make the variable as 'read for input'..Now he should be able to see only values he is authorized with f4 on selection screen if your char is authorization relevant.
