Error Message for currency (0Currency) during activation of DSO


Hi guys,

data which is transfered from datasource to dso contains an value " * " for currency which is unknown for some key figures.

During the activation of the data in DSO an error is appearing: No SID for value " * " of characteristic 0Currency found.

Is there some solution for that error available?

I checked the values for currency which are stored in 0Currency master data. There is one value for empty currency.

I thought one solution is to remove the " * " currency in ERP, then the currency will not have the " * " value and no error would appear in BW.

The other is to create a new InfoObject for currency and add the value " * " in master data. Then with the assignment of the new currency InfoObject also an error should not appear.

Any ideas about that?

Thank you in advance for answering!
