Wrong behaviour: Right shift of cell values after changing report

Hi folks

We have a very strange issue while executing a webi report/query.

Example:

We have these dimensions: customer, product, timestamp, calendar day, hour (customerbased dimension) and some key figures.

While our initial run/execution of the report showed correct values in the dimension and key figure cells, we noticed a strange behaviour after doing this activity: Dropping dimension timestamp from the report and refreshing it, there was a shift of values one cell to the right.

Example 1 (before dropping of dimension timestamp):

Customer 1000

Product xyz

Timestamp 20100303223000

Calday 03032010

hour 22

sales 1,000,000.00

costs 350,000.00

Example 2 (after dropping of dimension timestamp):

Customer

Product 1000

Calday

hour

sales

costs

There is a right shift of customer value to the cell of "product". All the other cells are empty or even also filled with values from another dimension. Key figures are empty.

datasource of WebI report: Universe based on SAP BW query.

Versions WebI and Universe: 12.3.0

Release SAP BW: SAPKW70106

Does anyone have an idea?

Thanks for your help.

    Is it same behavior when you run query 1st time (with dragging Timestamp) , I mean start fresh one with all the objects, including timestamp also.

    Now how is the data??

    Or

    If you want to add Timestamp object to existing report, just right-click on column and say "Insert column to left/right", in that drag the timestamp or double-click on the cell and write =[Timestamp].

    Now any strange O/P??

    Thank You!!

      See, It's very difficult to imagine about your Schema and how objects defined.

      So only option we have is testing it, to do that , create brand new report with all objects what you need for Reporting.

      Now play with it as you want like Removing timestamp etc..., Now is it behaving as usual or not??

      Thank You!!
