Value 1375u0016C for variable Material is invalid.

Hi,

I'm not sure how to deal this issue. looking for your input in this issue.

I'm getting the following error when i select a variable value from variable screen in the web application designer. It works fine from Business Explorer. Our Material MasterData has a character "" in each and every material number. We have a need to keep this "" charcter in the Material records of BW 3.0B. This "" is giving the error in Web Application designer.

When I select value "1371260", it is taking as "1371°".

Value 1371° for variable Material (Optional/Multiple selection) is invalid.

When I select value "1371059", it is taking as "1371 9".

Value 1371 9 for variable Material (Optional/Multiple selection) is invalid.

When I select value "137126C", it is taking as "1375 C".

Value 1375 C for variable Material (Optional/Multiple selection) is invalid.

When I select value "1371", it is not taking any value.

Diagnosis

Characteristic value is not valid for variable Material.

Procedure

Enter a valid value for the characteristic. The value help, for example, provides you with suggestions. If no information is available here, then perhaps no characteristic values exist for the characteristic.

Notification Number BRAIN 643

I appreciate if you can be of any help to me.

thanks

    1st thing to check - is the "\" character a permitted character in the BW configuration?

    If yes, then check the error logs in BW and also search notes. If you come up with nothing, then I would say you need to open an OSS message.

    It sounds as if its a permitted character (which if BEx accepts it should be), then the issue is a bug with WAS or javascript in the web template (not your code, but the generated code from SAP.) If the field validation is happening via javascript in the variable screen (which I think it is) then that is an escape character in javascript and its probably mis-interpretting it.

      Hi Stephen,

      thanks for your reply.

      "\" is the permitted character in BW and we don't have any problems when selecting values in Business Explorer but only in WAS.

      Looks like "\" is recognised as escape character by browser for the reason being we are getting error in WAS only. will try other means and I appreciate if you have any other suggestions.

      thanks

      Hi,

      just to provide some more information,

      it works fine when i type in the value 1371\26C manually in the variable box of Web Application designer. after i type in and execute, i get the results without any error.

      it gives error only when i go for F4 help values and select a value in the F4 help values screen.

      should it not behave the same in both ways?

      appreciate your inputs.
