Variants available in BEX execution but not in Web execution

Dear Colleagues!

I have experiences something strange. When I execute my query in Excel I am able to save a variant in the variable screen (I want to hide a field). But when I execute my query on the web I am NOT able to save (or choose) variants! What can cause this? Versions?

What I want is for the infoobject customer to not be changeable for the person executing the report. It should only be filled out by the portal (logon name pushed into the variable).

Regards Silje

It sounds like you need to set up personalization for your query. In doing this you can save values for your variables in the same way you describe. Here are two links to personalizing variables:

Also, you might want to try an exit variable to automatically fill this value: a link to the different types is here:

Hope this helps,
