BO 4.0 webi prompt values not working

Hi All

I am facing a peculiar problem with prompts in WEBI 4.0. The data values in prompt are comping from Oracle database which are actually stored in German characters. So when we are running a report in BI launchpad and selecting those german characters as prompt in BO 4.0, the report is not running at all (showing no errors). However the same reports with german prompt values are working fine in BO web rich client.

    • Hi,

      Looks like a very simple unicode character transposition problem.

      However, I'm going to have to recommend a serious upgrade before further troubleshooting ..

      If the version really is as you describe, then this is an unsupported 'pre-general release' build from end 2010.

      Customers must be on either 4.0 SP04 or 4.0 SP05 codelines for support, as these are the only actively maintained codelines. Atop of these, you have Patch4.x and Patch5.x corrections (up to 4.8 and 5.2 respectively at time of writing)

      There is very little value in digging to much further because of the amount of cumulative corrections available. Are you in a position to upgrade the server and client components?
