Not all selections from BEx query appear in SAP Connector Designer



while using the SAP connector designer, i have noticed some selctions from BEx queries do not show in the Connector Designer.

Even going through OnlineHelp - Theobald Software GmbH I don’t find explanation or mention about this.


Please find a screenshot attached where i show all BEx query selection in the Connector Designer. The missing one is highlighted.


Thanks in advance,

    Only BEx variables that are defined in the "Filter - Characteristic Restrictions" area of the BEx query will be exposed in BW Extractor.
    BEx variables defined in the "Default Values" area will not be exposed (as they are not supported by SAP's MDX OLAP BAPI interface).
    So, check if the missing variables are defined in the Default Values section of the BEx query.
