Issue with APD

Hi,

I have created an APD with a Query as a source and Direct Write DSO as a target. When i am trying to do the mapping, for all the key figures in the query i am NOT getting either the TECHNICAL NAME NOR THE DESCRIPTION. It is giving a weird string something like

4D43SKP....................... What can I do to see either the technical name or the description.

Thanks

Rashmi.

    Hi Rashmi,

    If the string you have mentioned is coming for the query, then it might be the UID of the query. You can check it by opening the query in Bex query designer. Go to Properties of the query -> go to advanced tab -> you can find the UID of the query. you can check whether the same string exists in the designer and your APD.

    So, the string you mentioned 4D43SKP....................... is nothing weird.

    If you are getting the string for the KFs, then you can go to KFs individually and check their properties. You can check it by selecting each KF and check their properties by going into advanced tab of the KF and there you can find the UID. you can check whether your string and this UID are the same.

    Let me know incase of any more questions

    Regards

    Sunil

    Hi,

    Maybe it is a ckf or rkf with multiple components. In the APD, right click on DSO and check 'display data'. And then compare with ur query analyzer output to determine the field name.

    Hope it helps.
