Prompt Details defined in BI

Hi All,

I have a small doubt here.

Currently we are using SAP BOBJ 4.0 with Patch 4.

I have a BEx query designed in which prompt is created on top of Company code(Mandatory Prompt) for which Variable Represents is defined as "Select Option" as attached.

When i m executing this query in Analyzer, i was prompted as where i can select a single value or multiple values or interval values which i correct as per the property defined.

But when coming to BO, i m trying to build a BO report using BICS connection on top of this query in which this same company code prompt is coming as only interval values.

Ideally it should be like a single value or multiple value or interval values as it is prompted in BI..

Why is this difference when coming to BO?

Can some one give me more information on how this Bex property work in BI and BO?

Please let me know if you need any more information to provide me a clear information.

Thanks,

Prasad

Hi,

Yes in WebI, the Variable option displays as defied.

If you want user to enter both single and Multiple then select "Multiple" option in BEx.

Hi Jyothi,

Thanks for the Information.

yes, in the BEX query we can change the property to "Multiple".

But what i would like to know is if we set the option to "Select Option" in BEX and built the report on top of it, will that prompt come as Interval Prompt in BO Report?

Regards,

Prasad

Hi,

Yes, That's correct. When you define BEx variable as "Select Option" WebI consider it as "Interval " Prompt.

Hi Jyothi,

Thanks for the clarification.

That was really a helpful answer.

I remember some where i read that this was overcome'd in some patch of BO 4.0.

Is that true??

Thanks,

Prasad.

Hi,

I dont see much difference in BO 4.0 though. Pretty much same features of BEx as compared previous BO XI version.
