Cost Element Description issue if I exclude a cost element in the selection screen


Hello experts,

I have a custom BW report. In this cost element is a selection variable. If I put in exclude some of the cost element(s) in the selection screen, after running the report, when the cost element characteristic is displayed, it is not showing the description. Actually, it is showing the key itself as description. In the key, it does not show the controlling area. But, in the description it shows the controlling area, then a "/" and then the cost element. If I don't exclude any cost elements, then the description of cost element is OK. Further interesting thing is that, this is happening only for one user out of three users that are running the report. This is happening to that user regardless where the user runs the report. So, it is not specific to user's computer.

Any insight/suggestion/solution is appreciated.

Thank you,
