Bex F4 help not working correctly


When running a Bex query on a DSO, and a variable prompt appears, and the user clicks on the F4 help to display values, it is getting Values in InfoProvider, even though the InfoObject is set for “Values in Master Data Table”. This causes the F4 to run a long time, because the DSO is large. In some cases, it times out after 20 minutes.


0FISCPER: “Values in Master Data Table” for Query Def. Filter Value Selection and for Query Execution Filter Val. Selection.

DSO: there is no override for these properties on 0FISCPER.

BW 7.3 SP7

The problem occurs in all versions of Bex – 3.x, 7.x, rsrt, run on web from Query Designer, run in Bex Analyzer.

This might have started with the 7.3 upgrade, I’m not sure, but I can’t find any notes to fix it.
