    1. If the SAP System cannot determine a specific object key, a dialog box appears in which you must specify to which object the report is assigned. The SAP System uses the generation variant to recognize for which report applications symbols were created on the report template and queries the relevant object keys for them.
    2. The SAP System cannot, for example, assign a specific material itself if a number of materials are assigned to a report, but you have called the specification view so that the dialog box for manual assignment appears.

      The same dialog box appears if you toggle to a view in which there is no assignment in the SAP System between a report and the object that belongs to the view, but symbols for this object's report application are present on the report. In this case, the SAP System displays in the report tree the text DEFAULT KEY that you must replace with the specific object key.

    3. The SAP System then displays all symbols of the type Parameter and the determined parameter values.
