You can restrict the key figures of an InfoProvider by using one or more characteristic selections. The key figure that is restricted by one or more characteristic selections can be a basic key figure, a calculated key figure, or a key figure that is already restricted. A restricted key figure is reusable
You can also use variables instead of characteristic values. Note that, due to technical reasons, you cannot use variables with processing type Replacement Path with replacement from a query in restricted key figures.
The Properties screen area contains the following tabs, which correspond to the properties of a selection:
General tab: For calculated key figures, the same properties are available in the Constant Selection and Display screen areas as are available for the properties of a selection. The only difference is that the Selection screen area is not available because the calculated key figure cannot be changed in the query.
You have created a restricted key figure for an InfoProvider. This key figure can be reused in queries, which are based on this InfoProvider. The restricted key figure is not an actual element in this query. It is a placeholder that references the restricted key figure created for the InfoProvider.
You can find the restricted key figure either in the BW Repository of the query under the , or by using the search. To search for the key figure, find the toolbar in the BW Modeling perspective and choose (Search). Now you can search for the query on the BW Object Search tab. In the Advanced Filter area, you can restrict the search to the type ELEM [Query Element] and subtype RKF [Restricted Key Figure] .
