Error when uploading flatfile (UPC204)

Hello All,

According to the how to paper: "Load A Flat File Into BW-BPS Using A Web Browser", I want to upload flatfiles into BPS. However when I upload a file for a certian Fiscal period I receive an error message saying; "UPC204 The generated data is not contained in the selection condition . Value 007.2006 for characteristic Fiscal year/period is not contained in the relevant selection conditions".

The strange thing is that if I first create a single entry manually for that period in my cube (using a manual planning package that is based on the same planning level as the upload is), the flatfile loads without any problems. Only if no data exists for a certain period in my InfoCube the problem occurs when uploading the file.

Anny help or tips are welcome,

Manny thanks in advance,

    Hi Cerillo,

    What are the conditions in your level or package for that field? Empty, a variable, fixed values?

    Maybe this is only a problem about the format of the field. For 007.2006, your field shoud contain 2006007.

    Can you debugg the user exit described by SAP How to paper in order to check its content?
