    hello,

    Even I have seen this error in 4.2 Sp3, But the case of when we were duplicating the query tab it was throwing this error. But when we add as new query with same objects this was not encountered.

    Issues like that, when existing KBA's are not helping should be investigated by SAP Support. (BI-RA-WBI) component.
    Alternatively, if you want to do your own investigation, start with End to End trace. KBA
