Query as InfoProvider - Percentage Function

Hi guys,

I am facing a problem when using a query as an Infoprovider. I flagged the query as InfoProvider in RSRT and connected it to a DSO via a transformation. Within the Query I have a formula column that is calculating the percentage Share of another key figure by using the function "%GT Percentage Share of Total". Somehow this seems to cause problems, as the DTP I am using to load the query data into the DSO always provides the following errors:

When removing the calculated column including the percentage function the DTP works just fine and gets a green result.

Any ideas on that issue? Are percentage functions a known restriction when it comes to using queries as InfoProviders? I wasn't able to find anything in the documentation on that topic.

Many thanks in advance,

    Hello Tobias

    Please try to realize the calculation of Formula in Calculated Key figure and try to load the data.

    Probably local formula is not supported although I have never tried this type extraction.
