How to create a variable in Bex Query Designer

Hi guys,

I am writing a query for a travel management report using the SAP Standard cube. I would like to restrict the query so it only shows me the last two months excluding the current month. I have checked BI content in RSA1, but I canu2019t find a relevant SAP standard variable that I can use.

Can anyone please tell me if I can create my own? And if so, how I can do this.

Many Thanks

lets say u want to display following picture:






so in Query designer go to Default values section.

Bring in Calendar month

right click calendar month

and hit Restrict

now select variable

use standard sap variable Current Month.

hit okey

now select Variable and hit Red button

Result u restricted current month.

in columns bring in keyfigure $

right click and hit edit

bring in time field calendar month

right click and hit restrict

bring in Current month

right click and select - SET OFFSET FOR VARIABLE

select -1

hit okey

repeat the above process

and this time select offset = -2

this way u restricted current month

but displayed last 2 months for keyfigure values.
