Issue refreshing report with EPMContextMember

I have a report which uses EPMContextMember to set the entity and time period. The cell for the entity selection has no restriction but I have a filter in the cell for the time selection to limit the choices to a monthly period. Upon making a change to the entity and refreshing the report, I get the error below in the time cell.

#Error - Unexpected Error. Check your parameters.

My options are set to automatically refresh on context changes and the report refreshes without issue but displays the error referenced above in the time cell. I then edit the cell without making a change gets rid of the error but I don't want our end users to get confused. I should mention that I get the same results if I turn off the automatic refresh. Is there a setting somewhere that I'm missing?

My cell formulas are listed below for reference.


=EPMContextMember(,"TIME","CALC=N") or =EPMContextMember(,"TIME","LEVEL=MONTH")

    It seems I do not have the issue when I specify the connection name in the formula so I guess this is resolved.
