BOA: Sorting Date Characteristics in Query with BW 7.5 on HANA

Hi all,

after upgrading to BW 7.5 on HANA, changing the sort order of date characteristics like 0CALMONTH and 0CALYEAR does not work anymore in BOA 2.4, if those characteristics are restricted within the Query. If a sorting other than the Default is defined for the characteristic in the Query, it is displayed correctly on the first execution of the Query. If the sorting is now changed in BOA, it is applied and cannot be changed again.

Sorting is possible when moving the "Characteristic Restrictions" to the "Default Values".

Other characteristics seem to not have the problem.

Is there any way to solve this issue? Can anyone check if sorting of those characteristics works in a later BOA version with BW 7.5. on HANA?

Hello Stephan - I haven't experienced any issue with 2.6 SP1 on 7.5 (but not using HANA)

Is there a chance you could download 2.6 with the latest SP on a desktop to try yourself? 2.4 is several years old...

Hello Tammy, thank you for the quick reply!

I will try to get 2.6 SP1 (or later) installed. It may take a while, since I do not have the authorization to do this myself.

Hello Tammy, after installing Version 2.6 SP1 sorting in a query still does not work properly. There is no problem running the same query in one of the other (non-HANA) Systems. I am afraid we have to create an incident. regarding this.
