Crystal Reports - Problem with too long BEx Query technical variable names?


I have Crystal Reports 2008 SP3 and the SAP BO Integration Kit XI 3.1 SP3 installed and want to access a BEx query on a BW system within my Crystal Report.

The problem is that the name of the BEx variable is not displayed correctly (just "[]" is displayed for the variable name) as a parameter within Crystal Reports when I import the query. Furthermore I can't navigate through the fields of the query within Crystal Reports.

The technical names of the BEx query-variables have a length of 12 characters.

The interessting thing is that if I change the technical names of the BEx query variables to a maximum length of 8 characters everything works fine.

I use the SAP toolbar within Crystal Reports 2008 to create the report and have the "MDX-driver"-setting selected.

Has anyone ever had the same problem? Any suggestions?

I don't want to change the technical names of the variables of my queries...

    Just fixed the problem: The "Transports" for the Integration Kit had to be imported at the BW-System
