BOXI 3.1 SP5 Error : MDX result contains too many cells (more than 1 million)


Hi Gurus,

I have a BOXI 3.1 SP5 system on a Solaris 5.10 env. I have a heavy WEBI report which is based on a BW query universe. This WEBI fetches huge amount of data from the BW system I recently happen to receive the error "failed: A database error occured. The database error text is: Error in MDDataSetBW.GetCellData. MDX result contains too many cells (more than 1 million). (WIS 10901) (FBE60502)" while publishing this WEBI report. It has happened only once. I ran this report again, twice indeed and have found no issues with this report.

However, the client wants to know as to why did this error occur in the first? Was it an issue at the BO end or the BW end? What can I do to prevent this error from occuring again?

I have already gone through a couple of relevant links. However unlike these, my issue is that the error occured only once or may be intermittent.

Request help on the same.
