How to Copy a Query user Variant to another Query?

Former Member

Hi Experts,

We recently made a new version of a BW Query. My question is, is there a way to copy the User Created Variants from the Old Query to a new one?

They dont want to update the old query, so saving the New Query on top of the Old Query is not an option.

They want the User created Variants in the old Report to be copied to the new Query Report that we are making.

I already checked the Table RSRPARAMETRIZA, I can see the User Variants in the list and which report the Variant is assigned to,

but there is no Copy Command, and the Create is also Grayed out.

Thank you.

Hi Juan,

Table - RSRPARAMETRIZA, there is a filed PERSONAL(Global or User-Specific Variant) , if this value  as "X" for your variants, its may not be possible to copy. means those are user specific.

Thanks

Hi Raman,

Thank you for your reply. All the Variants in the table are "Personal"/ User Specific. The users created their own variants.

So it is not possible to copy their variants to other reports?

Is there a way to make the existing User Variants Global?

I can only view RSRPARAMETRIZA, I cannot edit the line items or make a new one.

I tried making a new Variant using RSRT...

But when I open the report, I dont see the Variant that I created..

  

When I create a variant from the report via "Save As" it becomes a user variant, not Global. Only I can use it, not the users.
