Error "Filter Item DROPDOWNBOX_x specified an invalid characteristic 0xxxx


Hi All

I really hope someone can help me. I have just put a brand new BW system live (as all tested OK) using Web Pages for front-end, the first I have done and the first in my Company.

We are getting occasional error mesage for users in the format:

"Filter Item DROPDOWNBOX_<i>x</i>specified an invalid characteristic 0<i>xxxxxxxxxxxx</i>"

This only happens occasionally (maybe once or twice a day) and shows no real consistency, it can be for different users, different web pages, different dropdown boxes, different characteristics. It can also disappear purely by the user login out and back in again....but sometimes it does not disappear.

It can be happening for one user but another (i.e. me) can do exactly the same thing at the same time and not get the error.

Nay ideas what might be causing the problem and how to fix it?

Many Thanks
