Combine Functionality - AFO - Linking a dimension error

I'm using AFO 2.4, I have two data sources both with the same dimension "profit center", I select one data source > combine > link dimension and then get the following error:
"Characteristic Profit Center does not support pattern selection"

I am trying to achieve the same functionality as outlined in this guide -

Is anyone able to advise on a workaround/fix

    Hello - 2.4 is a few years old; please update to 2.6 SP02 and try this again.

      Although a practical answer, unfortunately unachievable due to client restrictions.. I imagine the issue may be a query issue but googling the error yields no results so hoping someone can offer their expertise

    Hi,

    Query running with Contains Pattern in selection screen not supporting to combine with other data source. Change your selection to other parameters instead of using CP to Combine.

    Thanks,
    Raju
