    Hi Fanil,

    What patch level are you on for BI 4.0? I'd recommend going to the latest patch release as many prompting issues are corrected.


    SAP Note 1602665 contains the link to the Release Notes and Fixed Issues guide for the latest Critical Patch for SP02 that you can review to see if these match what you're seeing.

    It may also help to know a little bit more about your workflow. Is this WebI reports based on OLAP or a relational data source? Are you using BICS to connect to a BEx Query?

    If you have Refresh on Open also selected, you may be seeing the issue outlined in KB 1649557 for Keep Last Selected Values problem:

    https://bosap-support.wdf.sap.corp/sap/support/notes/1649557

    There are several other KBs related to keep last values that may apply, depending on your workflow.

    For the Report Filters, do you mean simple report filters, drill filters, Input Controls? There are a few different ways to apply filters to a report.

    Do the filter values contain special characters such as accents?

    There are many KBs related to report & query filters, but I'm not sure which (if any) would apply to what you're seeing.

    Thanks,

    Carly
