Variables containing "-" in name, showing "\" after refresh


Hi Experts,

Issue: When i open a report in Bex analyzer, run it once for the selections in which there is a hyphen(-) contained in name. It executes fine.

Now, if i open the variable selection screen and see those selections that I have made earlier, I will see a pair of "\"(back slash) with hyphen. i.e. "..\-\.." in variable selection screen.

It increments each time i open the variable selection screen and runs the report i.e. number of "\" increments by one ("..\\-\\..") after each refresh of report.

I am using SAP GUI 7.2 SP 4.

Any pointers will be highly appreciated.
