Dashboards 4.1 BICS Not Connecting to BW



I am experiencing a problem with creating a BICS Connection in Dashboards 4.1 as well as Xcelsius 2008. I can select the system and the query, but in the Input Values, Output Values, and Data Preview, the query data is not appearing. When I use a colleague's ID on my machine, I am able to connect. We have compared our assigned roles in security, but we could not find anything that is different. We also ran a security trace on my ID when attempting to connect to the query, but there were no errors.

Has anyone ever experienced this or have any ideas of how I can troubleshoot further or fix this issue? Please see the screen shots below to see the difference between the two IDs in Data Manager.
