Strange Values in Characteristic selection screen



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.
