Tab page in the variables editor that is required for variables with the processing type Manual Entry/Default Value.
You specify one or more default values when you define a variable. These then appear in the variables screen when you execute the query or Web application.
If the variable is ready-for-input, you can overwrite the default value in the variables screen and select a different value.
If the variable is not ready-for-input, the query is filled with the default value and you cannot change the value when you execute the query or Web application.
The selected default values are displayed here.
If you want to change the default values for existing variables or define default values for a new variable, choose Change Default Values. The input help dialog box for selecting default values appears.
The selection options that the input help dialog box offers you depend on the setting you chose on the Details tab page for Variable Represents.
● If the variable represents a single value, you can select one default value here.
● If the variable represents multiple values, you can select multiple default values here.
● If the variable represents an interval, you can select a default value for the From value and a default value for the To value here.
● If the variable represents a selection option, all input help functions are available for selecting default values here. For example, you can exclude or include values from the selection. For more information, see Input Help in BEx
If you want to remove the default values, choose Remove Default Values.
Only one default value is required for formula and text variables. Enter the required default value into the input field manually.
If the variable represents a precalculated value set, you have to enter the technical name of the value set created in the BEx Broadcaster as the default value. This value set contains the required precalculated values from background reporting. For more information, see Precalculating Value Sets.
