Varible for Information Broadcasting Schedule (send Workbook with E-mail)

FYI: I set a broadcasting schedule to send workbook with e-mail. The pre-calculated server was set already.
My problem is that I want the value in selection-screen to be dynamic.
e.g. I want the date (variable for 0CALDAY) to be filled with value of current date (the date on the day that the schedule is executed).
When i set the broadcasting schedule, the wizard asks me to set the variable for selection screen. ("Variable Assignment"). I selected the variance that i prepared. (However, for that variance the date is fixed.) So, for everyday that the schedule is executed, the date value of the selection-screen is not the date that the broadcast schedule is execute; but it was the date on which i set the schedule.
Is there any method to set a dynamic variable (something like a dynamic selection of ABAP report) ?
or How can i solve this problem?
Thank you very much for your inputs in advance.

Hi Rlyn,
Have you thought of using standard SAP exit variable for restricting 0CALDAY in the query in the workbook on which the setting has been scheduled.
The SAP exit would automatically determine the current date and query your dataset as per the current date and then broadcast.
Other way to do this would be to create a variant ....as you have done and to change the value of the variant everyday using an ABAP program to change the value in the database tables (RSRVARIANT for 3.x and RSPARAMETERIZA)
I would suggest you to try the former method(SAP exit variable).
Hope it helps,
Best regards,
Sunmit.

  • Necessary Notes for Information Broadcasting

    Hi Gurus, I need some help in finding solution to this issue even my BASIS team wants me to find. Information Broadcasting (IB) can be accessed in 2 ways, from Query Designer and Web (if properly installed, we have additional tab apart from 'Data Analysis', 'Graphical Display', 'Information' and 4th tab is supposed to be 'Information Braodcasting'). We don't use WAD here.
    I can access it from Query Designer not from the query 'display on the web' as it doesn't have the additional tab for 'Information Broadcasting'. I am pretty sure that I need to recommend them to install some additional SP and notes. Please advice me on which SP is missing.
    This is urgent, so please respond immediately with some good answers.
    Thnx.

    The Precalc server is only needed if you want to use Information Broacasting to create and distribute Excel workbooks. 
    You probably want to install this on a separate PC or server, and if you use the IB to generate a lot of Excel wkbks, you may need more than one.
    You can install on your BW Team's PCs if you want, but if you intend to let end users Broadcast wkbks, then look at PC(s)/Server(s) under your control. The Precalc Server is a Windows service that runs on teh PC/Server. 
    More recent SPs (3.5 SP 19 or 20 I think) have delivered  the ability for the Precalc server to queue up wkbks, as it only can run one at a time.  Prior to the queueing functionality, you could run into problems if mutlitple wkbks were hitting the Precalc at the same time.  There is a new RSADMIN entry that lets you specify how large the queue should be, e.g. 10 wkbks, 20, etc.

  • Data change Event for Information Broadcasting

    Hello Forum
    This is regarding problem with "Data change Event for Information Broadcasting".
    We have integrated the evening in a separate chain which is scheduled after the transaction data load.
    In the settings for the event we have mentioned the infoprovider name based on which the reports are to be distributed.
    Now, when the process chain is executed it does not distributes any reports though the data is changed in the infoprovider.
    However when executed again its distributing it,any ideas what the problem is ?

  • Unable to send attachments with e mails.

    Unable to attach anything to e mails before sending them. I closed down computer once and saved e mails to draft and tried again and it worked. However it is now impossible to send attachment with e mails. When you click attach the my documents folder does not open up? I am using Windows 10 software and O/S Windows XP home edition.

    Mp3 file will always attach. When I hit send..the sending message will activate..then the e-mail will just sit there with the little spinning dots and say sending for as long as 10minutes or more and eventuall it will stop trying to send and have some kind of error message saying 'We encountered a problem'. This has been going on for over 2 years and several 'FireFOX' upgrades.
    I switch over to Safari and use the same -email' and bingo..it sends in a few seconds.

  • Scheduling question for information broadcasting

    I am confusing between 2 options In information broadcast.
    1) executation at pre-defined time
    2) direct scheduling at background processing
    I have no idea what is the different of each.
    I read the sap help but it still does not make clear to me

    HI,
    In BI 7 we have various options..
    If you have Java Stack in BI server then it will use Portal and then there you can configure the settings, you need to give one technical name and then schedule the same.
    We faced the problem, in my system there is no Java Stack so we used BW 3.5 WAD in BI 7 system and then in WAD we configured the Broadcasting settings and saved with one Technical name then used RSRD_BROADCAST_STARTER program and create Varient for "Broadcasting settings and saved with one Technical name " and in PC after Cube load we given this Program with Varianet , so once dataloads will happen the reports will distributes.
    Thanks

  • Broadcasting a Excel Workbook with additional drilldowns

    I am trying to broadcast a Bex Excel Workbook by drilling down on couple of characteristics.  The Underlying workbook has already been set NOT to refer to the Queries Global Definition.
    So my problem is that when I broadcast this workbook after drilling down on the additional characteristics, it does not send it in the way I wanted, but it sends the workbook with whatever has been defined in the Bex Query (which is with no additional drilldowns). 
    I would like to know if there is way to add more drilldowns in the workbook and then distribute that workbook to the end users.

    No we don't want to save the workbook, becuase this is for the end user who wants to add a drilldown and then would like to send the output to his/her own email.   Basically end user should be able to add drilldowns to the workbook in the way he wants and wants to schedule the workbook in background using Broadcasting.
