How to Debug BEX User Exit Variable with Olap Analysis 4.1 SP4 and DS 1.5?
We have a user exit variable in BEX query that works in RSRT but is not applied in OLAP for Analysis, or Excel 4.1 SP4 or Design Studio 1.5.
The exit is fairly straightforward: pass a parameter 1-6, then the exit determines the calendar range to apply to the results. We want to push all the date calculations previously done in Xcelcius to this BW user exit.
Example. If variable value is 2, then results are restricted to last month, if 3, then results are for YTD.
- The variable is unchecked as ready for input
- The variable is placed with the info object 0CALMONTH in the characteristic restrictions frame
- Checked authorizations - same user can execute the bex query in bex analyzer without error and retrieves the expected results.
- Cleared saved prompt values in olap for anlaysis
How can we debug, trace, or confirm that the BW user exit variable is being executed?
The documentation for BI 4.1 and DS says user exits variables are now supported, but are there limitations, tricks to this?
Really appreciate any good info on this topic!
