Drill through config - what if there is no screen field name


I have to config drill through from BPC report to ECC t-code.

As per the How to Config Drill thru functionality Doc, in Drill thru config under parameters mapping > URL parameters should be configured with "Screen Field" of the source report in ECC.

In my case i have to refer to a t-code which has certain fields like year,period from, Period to. but dont know why these fields have Screen Field as blank.

So with out maintaining the Screen Field for the above fields which are mandatory for the report, when i run the drill thru the screen shows prompting the user to enter values. Thus, the whole purpose of seemless drill thru from BPC report to ECC report is lost.

My question is what to do in such situations? what if the fields have "Screen Field" as blank?

Is that a limitation? any workaround?

Thanks in advance.


Hi. These fields under report selection are defined a little differently, hence no value for screen field name. I went into the screen definition itself in screen painter, and found that these fields do have specific screen field names. I have listed them below.

Field          Screen Field Name
Ledger                 PAR_03
Fiscal Year          PAR_06
From Period         PAR_01
To Period             PAR_02

You can use these screen field names in your drill through configuration. Again, all I did was go into the screen definition, and view the layout in screen painter, and clicked on the fields in question, which then gave me the name of the field in the screen.

I tested with these screen field names and it worked fine. Here is my URL.


Hope this helps.
