SAP BW/4HANA InfoArea does not exist (in active version)

Hi,

upon creation of a new InfoArea in B4H on CAL I'm getting the same error message as reported in https://answers.sap.com/questions/89787/bw4-hana-creating-an-infoarea-in-hana-studio-is-no.html . Any chance you can apply a similar patch to the SAP BW/4HANA developer edition? I'm using the BW Modeling Tools version 1.17.4 and was able to reproduce the error message across different Eclipse clients.

    Hi,

    I have applied 2354199 - Creation of new InfoArea: exception when entering invalid name (BW/4) , and it solved problem. Give it a try.

    regards.

    Thanks Baris. I figured out that the BW-MT version 1.15.2 lets you create InfoAreas whereas 1.17.4 does not.

      Hi Thorsten,

      How can I download a lower version of BW-MT? I have the 1.17.4 and am facing the same issue.

    Hi Thorsten,

    In the meanwhile you can create an InfoArea on the root level as you need to leave the InfoArea field blank. If you are creating sub-nodes i.e. InfoArea beneath another InfoArea then you add the name of the parent InfoArea in that field:
