Formula's name not displayed properly in BEx Analyzer (after mig. to BI7)

Hello Colleagues,

I spotted some strange issue in Query ouctome display after migration to BI7.

We have a query with set of Calculated Key Figures, where 'Description' of the Key Figure is created on the basis of combination of Variables with Replacement Path and a Constant.

Everything was displayed properly before migration to BI7 (in BW 3.5), but after migration the text for 'Description' looks like it was cut. We didn't migrate queries and we run them with the old (3.5) BEx Analyzer.

For example. Let's assume that CKF1 has below definition of 'Description':

&ZTXTVAR1&
&ZTXTCAT& 
&ZTXTMON&-&ZTXTYEAR&
* 10000 'USD'

<b>When it was run before migration it looked like (I use examplary values):</b>

  • 10000 ‘USD’

<b>Now (in BI7) in BEx Analyzer (3.5) it looks like</b>:

  • 10000

<b>What is interesting, when running in Web Browser it is:</b>

  • 10000 ERROR

<b>When I remove for example date's variable it looks properly:</b>

Standard Plan 2007

Updated

  • 10000 ‘USD’

So it clearly looks that the text is too long for 'Description'??

The question is: what changed in comparison to the previous version (BW 3.5).

I couldn't find any OSS note on that neither relevant thread in the MarketPlace. If someone met similar issue I will be very grateful for suggestions on solution.

Thanks & Regards,

Andrzej Bobula

    This definitely is strange. Did you try re-generating the query from RSRT?

      Yes. The query was regenerated. We did all post-upgrade tasks suggested by SAP plus some additional steps like cache deletion, copying the query, and so on.

      I was wandering if there is any kind of parameter for that, but I have no idea where to look for that.

    For those who will meet similar issue - it was SAP bug.

    The SAP note for that is 1115665.
