Hi All,

I was wondering if someone has experienced this issue, as I haven't found a related note or thread?

Thanks in advance for your help.


When saving and reopening a BPC report form connected to BW via OLE DB provider, the IDs revert back to caption.

Seems like the issue manifests only when the underlying BEX query displays attributes.

BEX Query

The highlighted rows are reading of the attributes of the asset characteristic.

By default these are saved to display the Key only.


Component Release SP level

SAP_BW 731 18

CPMBPC 801 15 - BPC 10.0 on NW

POASBC 100_731 5

EPM Add-in NW .Net 3.5 25 patch 3

Are you working with BPC 10 NW or 10.1 NW???? Your BPC component is

CPMBPC 801 15

Alonso...I dont get it...As per my knowledge..BW INA Provider connections are to be used in BPC 10.1 Embedded system only...not 10! You are using BPC 10 NW standard..then why not use directly NW model connection????

Hi JP,

You're right, it's the NW Model connection (not the INA Provider).

I have updated the thread, any chance you've experienced this before?
