Maintain Dimension Members Error: StartIndex cannot be less than zero


I am using BPC 10.0 MS version and Microsoft Excel 2013. I ran into a recent problem when I try and maintain dimension members I receive the following error: StartIndex cannot be less than zero. Parameter name: startIndex.

This has occurred in all the dimensions.

Any ideas anyone can offer to help me resolve this issue?

Thanks for your time!

    Hi Sabareesh,

    a similar erro is related with the second hierarchy missing, you have to add it even if not used, see please this note, 1960619 - BPC MS 10.0 Error "Index was out of range. Must be non-negative and less than the size of the collection. Parameter name: startIndex"

    If doesn't work maybe your dimension file is corrupted, rename it and export it from admin console again (this will create a new file) and retry to process it.

    • Hi Sabareesh,

      verify in the matrix here if all of your sw version and sp are fine, e.g. office 2013 works under restrictions (epm-add-in and bpc sp), if all (OS, IIS, etc) are ok and it's a new installation, reinstall BPC again, otherwise better to open an incident to SAP.
