Limit BEx input variable F4 values via BADI

While running a SAP BW query, sometimes F4 help (Variable input help) returns a long list of unwanted
values. Users may not be interested to see all the returned values and this may confuse users or waste a lot
of time while selecting a right value from the list. There was no way to restrict the input help values before
SAP BI 7.01. With Support Package SAPKW70109 SAP has provided BADI
RSR_VARIABLE_F4_RESTRICT_BADI.

See the 2 following SCN articles on the subject:
