Error "InfoProvider was changed or activated at runtime" when refreshing WB

Hello SAP gurus!

Here's tricky case: we've got several workbooks with multiple queries in it based on one MP. After reactivating this MP in production, those workbooks began to fail with error "InfoProvider was changed or activated at runtime".

Wierd thing is, that I can refresh each query separately, and I can refresh workbooks with only one query on that MP,

I can execute queties in Web on this MP, - but I cannot refresh whole WBs with multile queries. This issue does not allow us using broadcasting, so it's a serious problem fo us.

We're on SAP GUI 7.10 and 7.20 ( same error in both versons ). MP is checked to be active. RSRV for those queries doesn't show any errors.

Please, if you have any hint what's happening, that would be really appreciated!

Thanks guys,

    Hi Daniil,

    Can you please make a dummy change in the multiprovider, save the MP again and then after this reactivate the MP. This could solve the problem since it has done in similar cases.

    Hello Michael!

    thanks for your input! I've had similar idea, but I consider it as a final option. Our landscape and authorization policy does not allow to make changes in production systems directly, so we'll have to transport MP from development system, which is not easy due to lots of approvals I need to get, and no garantee that it'll work as we still don't know the root cause.

    I would really appreciate any input regarding ideas what can be the cause or how to fix it without reactivating MP in prod.

    Many thanks in advance!
