"Status of Data" Text Element with InfoObject as Infoprovider report

Hello everybody,

I have a very interesting issue!

When running a report using an Info Object as an InfoProvider the "Status of Data" text element in Bex does not reflect the time the Info Object attributes or texts were last updated.

The "Status of Data" reflects the current date and time - which is not very helpful and potentially misleading to users. I am aware that I could load the master data to ODS / DSO and report off that instead but I want to use the Info Object.

Any help or tips would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks, Jim

    Thanks Mike, nice community work,

    The note you mention appears to be specifically related to BI7 , unfortunately we are working with 3.x platforms.

    However it directs you to note 680652 which contains the following statement about Info Objects in Info Sets;

    "The minimum date is taken from the dates of the highest number of requests.

    In particular, <u>the system ignores master data tables</u> that may be contained in the InfoSet."

    I'm not sure whether the correction in the note is meant to address the "ignoring" of the master data tables - if it is meant to fix the issue then it certainly hasn't worked as we are well past the support pack that contains the correction!

    Looks like it's one for OSS.

    Assigning points for helpfulness...I know you've been after that SAP mug for some time.
