Pass variable (not input parameter) between calculation views

Hi all,

I have 2 calculation views with variables (to filter data):

1. has variables on bukrs and budat

2. has variables on bukrs, budat and fkdat

So the variable on fkdat is not applied on view 1!

These 2 views on their turn are used in another calculation view (let's call it view 3), which applies a union of the 2 views.

I want to pass the variables from the original views (view 1 and 2) to view 3, so the correct filters are applied on view 3.

If I use variables in the semantic layer of view 3, and someone filters on fkdat, I never get any data of view 1 (which does not have fkdat) whereas I want all data of view 1 in case of a filter on fkdat.  So that is not an option (for bukrs and budat it would work fine btw).

Is this possible?  I mean, can I pass variables from underlying views?

With input parameters this is possible, but I'm looking at variables as I want to filter data.

Or do I have to use input parameters?  If so: how do I use them as a filter?
