Webi to HANA calculation view MDX error

Dear SAP Gurus,

In WEBI & Anlysis office I’m facing MDX error when connecting to “STAR JOIN” calculation view created in HDI container.

Environment :

HANA 2 SPS 02 Patch 3 ( Build 4.2.20 )

SAP Business Objects BI Platform 4.2 Support Pack 4 Patch 1 Version:

I have created a simple calculation view with Sales fact table and star joined it with “Material” dimension which is also created in same HDI ontainer. When I see the data preview the calc view data is showing for the Materials details (which are in Sales fact table).

When I connect to above view from WEBI .

  • i.If don’t include material in the query No issues- I can run query
  • ii.If I include Material in the query I’m getting following error

ErrorCode: 256 Description: sql processing error: Error occurred while executing a MDX statement. The error message is: An internal error occurred. Assertion failed with error message Hierarchy cache reference is invalid for (Material].( Material] : Hierarchy cache error:Hierarchy create error “HDI_CONAINER"."models:: Material /hier/ Material "error: No error Source: (Error: INF )
