Bex variables – where used list

Bex variables – where used list


As we all know, Bex variables are very useful and usually are widely used.

The problem is that when we want to change a variable, it may affect lots of queries and users.

We had an issue when we needed to change a variable from Mandatory to Optional, (In order not to display Variable screen in WAD), and we wanted to update all dependant queries/users with the change. 

In order to find all dependant queries we used the next technique.

The way to get that list is to go into “Transport connection” in RSA1


And then select your Variable from the list

For example I’ve chosen 0I_DAYIN


Then Right click on it and choose “Display description”


And you will get a pop up screen with the details:


Good luck!

      Thanks for the tip..Smart way of getting where used list.The advantage here is you can copy the Query names.

      Use V_RSZGLOBV maintenance view in trx. SM30  It has where used functionality as well variable maintence functionality. This is all that you need.
