At which place you are getting this error in BW. What is the exact error.

In case you are having issue with date fields in Cube for High carnality than see this one,

Hope it helps!

It has noting to do with InfoCube. The message is saying there is a high cardinality set of the infoObject. I have been working with this tool for eons and never seen high cardinality set on an infoObject.

I am able to add the infoObjects 0ASSET & 0ASSET_MAIN in the DSO and infoCube, but cannot add it to a multiProvider.


Only permitted InfoObjects (not contained InfoObjects) transferred

You are trying to add a set of InfoObjects to a dimension.

System Response

Some of the InfoObjects could not be added to the dimension. This might occur in one of the following cases:

  • Adding a high cardinality InfoObject. High cardinality InfoObjects cannot be used in InfoCubes, since SIDs are required when querying InfoCube data. As high cardinality InfoObjects do not have SIDs, you cannot use this InfoObject type in InfoCubes.
  • Adding a stock coverage key figure to to DataStore object: Stock coverage key figures are not supported by regular DataStore objects.


If this InfoObject is really required in the InfoCube, go to the Remodeling Toolbox workbench (transaction RMSRT) and convert the InfoObject.

NOTE: The Remodeling does not work!

Got the same message on an Amount Key Figure yesterday with Aggregation set to no aggregation (Somethign i've done umpteen times before). Could not add the Key Figuge to an infocube. It was seeing the Keyfige as a STOCK COVERAGE KEY FIGURE Type instead of an AMOUNT Key Figure type

I also note SAP left these infoObjects out of the infoCubes they delivered in Business Content.

All I need to find is where they set this high cardinality flag on the infoObject. They state that this is needed when more then 2 billion records exist. Why do they think a client would have over 2 billion Assets?

Hi .

High cardinality option is related to Indexing. Not sure what your exact issue is about Cardinality on Infoobject?

But technically we can go to the particular dimension and Uncheck the ‘High cardinality Option’ to deactivate it.

High cardinality is being assigned in the dimension of an infocube. Check your cube which dimension was configured with high cardinality.
