      Hi Suman,

      I did several things and not sure which one actually resolved it but I think your answer on refreshing WebService could have resolved it.

      1. I refreshed the Webi report.

      2. I refreshed the Web Services

      3. In Dashboard, I unticked and ticked the Refresh before components are loaded.
