Passing multiple parameters to SAP BW Query

Hi PBI Gurus,
In my report I am using multiple queries from SAP BW as a data source.

I all of these queries I am using the same parameters to get data. for examle fiscal year.

{Cube.ApplyParameter, "[!V000003]", {{"[0FISCYEAR].[K42016]", "[0FISCYEAR].[K42018]", "[0FISCYEAR].[K42017]"}}},

Next year I need to add year 2019 and istead of changing it in every single query I'd like to do that via Parameter.

 

I know how to pass just one value foe example: [0FISCYEAR].[K42016], but I am having trouble with passing all the values. I was trying with string: "[0FISCYEAR].[K42016]", "[0FISCYEAR].[K42018]", "[0FISCYEAR].[K42017]", but it doesn;t work.

Any suggestions?

 

Thanks ,

D.

Re: Passing multiple parameters to SAP BW Query

solve by creating a seperate "empty" query instead of parameter. I called it YEARS. Just like that:

let
 Source = {{"[0FISCYEAR].[K42015]", "[0FISCYEAR].[K42016]", "[0FISCYEAR].[K42017]", "[0FISCYEAR].[K42018]", "[0FISCYEAR].[K42018]"}}
in
 Source

And the result is used as a selector:

 

{Cube.ApplyParameter, "[!V000003]", YEARS},

Re: Passing multiple parameters to SAP BW Query

You have to pass the List of List in this case.

To do that lets sat you are stating from Company Code Master Data table, which is already filtered on the Companies that you need.

 

Write following code as a new query and use it in your Comp Code filter. Note here I had to convert Comp Code numbers into text so SAP can accept them.

let
    Source = #"Company Code Master Data",
    #"Changed Type" = Table.TransformColumnTypes(Source,{{"Company Code #", type text}}),
    #"Company Code #" = #"Changed Type"[#"Company Code #"],
    Final  = List.Combine({{#"Company Code #"}})
in
    Final

Hi @lewand03,

 

To pass multiple values in a single parameter, please check this blog Passing multiple values to a single input parameter.

Re: Passing multiple parameters to SAP BW Query

Thanks @v-frfei-msft,

 

But to be honest I do not know how to convert proposed solution:

  var_out = CE_PROJECTION

         ( :vty

         , ["ZWEEK"

         , "ZROWCOUNT"]

         , 'in("ZWEEK", :ip_week)'

         );


Then the following statement will work.


SELECT "ZWEEK", sum("ZROWCOUNT") 

FROM "_SYS_BIC"."mypkg.filterview/ZTEST_FILT"

 ('PLACEHOLDER' = ('$$ip_week$$', '''201202'', ''201203'''))

GROUP BY "ZWEEK";

to PBI Language from my case, using Parameter functionality.

            {Cube.ApplyParameter, "[!V000003]", {{"[0FISCYEAR].[K42016]", "[0FISCYEAR].[K42017]", "[0FISCYEAR].[K42018]"}}},

Any ideas?
