Strange Values in Characteristic selection screen

hello,

We have a situation here where there are some strange values appearing in the selection screen for a particular characteristic. e.g. for Business Area we expect to see only "A" and "K". But we have a wide range of values showing up like 0001 and 300 etc.

I cannot see how these values got into the selections.

- I checked the infoobject and there is no master data load for this infoobject.

- There is a text load which contains text for 4 values (the ones we expect to see).

- I checked each of cube that the infobject is used in an used one of the invalid values as a restriction to see if I got any results back, but there was no luck here.

I thought perhaps the values came from the transaction data loads (seeing as there is no master data load for it). Is this a correct assumption? or is there any other explanation for these values being there.

Thanks for any help you can give.

Thanks,

Allan

    Hi Allan,

    If you checked just only requests for master data load then look at the master data of this IO. The strange values could come from transactional data load.

    Best regards,

    F4 can accept value only from masterdata or from infoprovider (or from some custom exit...)

    • Ok, Allan.

      Then try the other way. In BEx try to design a query which will include Business area (restrict it to a one strange value), date (or another time char if you don't have date), some other chars on your choise.

      Then the query results use as a filter when you will look again at the cubes content. Let's know if you see your strange values then. If yes, try to figure out what is common in that strange records and how they differ from the normal ones.

      Best regards,

      Eugene
