Wild card pattern selection '+' compatibilty with BWA


Hello BWA experts,

We have a situation in our production system where, when we enter a wild card string character in the variable selection like for example 1++6* the report does not return any result. The same when run with 16 output is obtained.

The reason behind using '+' string as a wild card character is because we want to restrict the wild card entries only for fixed length.

For example if in the cube we have data for a character like 12568, 12469, 12369, 1269, 1368. The report should fetch only data for 12568, 12469 & 12369 and not for 1269 & 1368.

We use BW Accelarator for this report. I made a check while running the report without BWA and this kind of pattern selection (1++6*) works fine.

Is it that the pattern selection with string '+' is not possible with BWA or is there any setting that needs to be maintained so that BWA returns data when pattern selection like the above is used?

Thanks in advance for your valuable inputs.
