Bex Hierarchy issue on Webi report

Hello Experts,
We are facing issues on use of Bex hierarchy in webi report,
Issue statement: We have webi report on bex query which have table and chart with input control on year and month to filter the report, table and chart uses hierarchy object to disply data. When we refresh report table and chart shows data with hierarchy on first level but once we check or uncheck any value from input control hierarchy in table and chart gets expanded and shows as flat structure. to get correct behaviour we have to collaps hierarchy.
Above behaviour happens for all report level filter like, block filter, drill filter, input control.
Please help me to know this is a bug or something wrong happened with development.

Hello Everyone,
I have got SAP note which states this is expected behaviour hence closing the discussion.
1702356 - Hierarchy Nodes expanded automatically to all levels after selecting value in the input control in a webi report.

  • Issue with webi report on BEx query

    I have created a universe on top of Bex query.  There is no issue in creating and exporting the universe.  But when I try to create a webi report out that BEx query, I am not able to see the values.  Say if I have a column called "Company"  I am getting the value as "All Company" and so on.  What will be the issue?
    But when a report is generated out of BEx analyser they are able to see the values properly.
    Same user credentials are used in both the places (Importing the query into universe, Connecting to BEx Analyser) .
    Thanks & Regards,
    Subbu S

    Hi Subbu,
    the universe will generate a L00 item and a L01 item. The L00 item shows the All member of the characteristic in the case of a flat list and the Top level nodes from a hierarchy. the L01 item should give you what you looking for.

  • Hierarchy issue with Web Intelligence Report

    Hi All,
    We are facing an issue with OLAP Universe where we are using hierarchy for cost center in reports.
    BEx query shows correct data in RSRT with hierarchy nodes.
    We have built a Universe on top of this BEx Query.
    We are using couple of nodes of cost enter hierarchy in WebI report but if we keep more than one node in WebI query, data comes double (probably because of duplicate rows). Instead if I keep just one of the node in WebI query, WebI report returns correct data.
    Please suggest, why such behavior with OLAP universe and how to resolve this?
    Best Regards,

    Thanks for your suggestions.
    I am little confused on how to check SQL generated for OLAP WebI Query.
    But other reports on same universe behave same way and I'll give a try to another universe but I don't expect it to behave in different way. I saw a setting for relational Universes like restriction on duplicate rows but the same is not present in case of OLAP Universe.
    Do you know how WebI behaves with BEx hierarchies?
    There has to be some setting to make it work...

  • Cosmetic issue in WEBI report while creating on top of BEX query

    While Creating WEBI report on tob of BEX Query, it is displaying both Technical names and descriptions at webi design level.
    The infoobjects we had used in BEx Query is Navigation Attributes.
    In case if we are using normal Infoobjects, we can able to restrict as per my requirement like uniqe name, description or both.
    In this webi report user(Power user) having flexibility to drag and drop available characteristics.
    Due to this issue column heading is displaying both technical name and description. For example Customer(ZCUSTOMER)

    How come , if  it is display for data means it also need to be display for header (Dimension also).
    you can try alternatively in webi by creating variable  for that Iobj .

    are present.
    User want if they select a Network then the Equipment that belong to that selected Network should shown in Drop Down Values
    of Equipment Prompt.
    This is a type of Prompt Hierarchy.
    Source for the WEBi Report is BW Bex Query. and there is no Hierarchy maintained in Network and Equipment at Bex and

  • Line graph issue in web report

    I have a 3 queries/reports on one page in my web report. I have 3 line graph buttons, one for each query.
    My issue is, in the report result or table, I have characteristic "Product" in rows and Key figures in Columns.
    Product                          Month 1     Month2      
    XYZ          Demand
                 On hand stock
                 Ending Inventory
    But when I hit the line graph button, it shows Product in the X (horizontal) axis and number ranges like 15000, 20000, 25000 in the Y axis.
    I need to swap the axes. I tried the "swap display axis" in the web items tab, but it didn't work.
    I read other threads on the same topic here and someone had suggested creating a query view, switching the columns and rows there and running the report to display the line graph as required.
    If I do that, won't the report result in the table also swap the rows and columns? I want the table to show Product in the Rows and KFs in the column as it is now, but I want the line graph to show Product in the Y axis and the Key figures in the Y axis.
    Any ideas on how to do that? Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    This is what I did:
    1) In BEX Analyzer, I opened the local view of the Query and swapped the Key figures and Characteristics. I put the key figures in the columns and Characteristics in the Rows
    2) I ran my report and save it as a View
    3) In WAD, I assigned the Chart to the View.
    When i ran the report from WAD, it still shows the key figures or number ranges in the Y axis and Characteristics on the X axis again.
    I checked the "swap display axes" option in Web Item tab, but the line graph still remains the same.
    Is there another way to do this? Or am I missing something?

  • Output mismatch between BEx query output and WebI Report output

    Hi All,
    I have a BEx query in which there are only characteristics placed in rows.
    There are combinations of the values of the characteristics giving different records in the query output.
    Date is one of the characterisctics in the query output.
    There is an output mismatch between the query output and the WebI report output in the following case:
    When there are 'Not Assigned' or '#' or blank values, there are additional entries(rows) in the WebI report, giving repeating or wrong entries in the Date field. This is incorrect data.
    Is this because of the  'Not Assigned' or '#' or blank values of the Characteristics or is there any other reason?
    How do I fix this?
    Please helo me with this.
    Thanks and Regards,
    Srilakshmi B

    Hi Rajesh,
    I need to verify the WebI report output for records with # and 'Not assigned' values for the cHracteristics in the report.
    So I cannot check the WebI report by hiding the # or Not assigned values.
    The problem is that in the Query output the records are like these shown below:
    Char1                    CHar2                          CHar3                       Date field
    A                             B                                 C                                Date1
    #(Not assgined)      #(Not assgined)      #(Not assgined)             No value
    Where as the WebI report output is as below:
    Char1                    CHar2                          CHar3                       Date field
    A                             B                                 C                                Date1
    #(Not assgined)      #(Not assgined)      #(Not assgined)            Date1
    As shown here, there are wrong/repeating entries for the Date field in the WebI report output.
    Please check this and let me know what could be the issue and how do I fix it.
    Thanks and Regards,

  • Strange issue in Webi Reports

    I have a Webi Report created on SAP BW Hierarchy Query -- BW 7.01 SP05 and this report is working fine.
    Then i have imported this report to another BO system having the same version BOE XI 3.1 SP1. But after import the Webi report
    is not working when we refresh in new system and getting the following error:
    "A database error occurred. The database error test is: An error has occurred. No further information AVAILABLE basis. (Wis 10901)"
    I have recreated the same report in new BO system but the error is same. I have implemented the Notes 1441767,1432162, and 1438091 in BW system to solve the issue but no use.
    Can any one help me how to solve this issue?
    Best Regards

    Hi Ingo,
    Thanks for the reply. For both the reports the underlying BW system is same.
    I found out a Note "1420169" which helped me to solve this issue. The values in the collumns are behaving differently each time.
    one time it will give wrong values some times it will not fill with values etc..
    Finaly after aplying the above note issue got solved.
    Best Regards

  • How to print sap bex query varaibles in webi report

    Dear Friends,
    I created a webi Report on universe ( Based on SAP BW Bex Query with variables).
    its working fine. Now i want to show the selected variable values on the top of my webi report.
    How can i access and print my bex query variables on header of my webi report.
    We are using BOE 3.1 SP2, SAP BI 7.02.

    That is default behavior of BO. The integration mapping from BI to BO will populates like that, COZ you made BI variable on top of Date dimension, which needs From and TO fields.
    To display that info, what user has selected on the fly:
    As suggested, use UserResponse() function.
    keep in mind, prompt text and userresponse text must be identical. Otherwise, it wont't work.
    Eg: prompt Text: Enetr From Date:
    Var: =UserResponse(Enter From Date:) -->> Results: (Blank)
    Why?? Prompt text Enetr not Enter
    Hope it clears you.
    I'm Back

  • Strange issues in WebI report on standard Universe on top of BW Query

    We have a BW query with a standard Universe on top of it (generated automatically via the connection in universe designer).
    However, very strange things happen when playing with the data in WebI.
    There are some characteristics and just one key figure (which is just 'number of records').
    - key figures just disappear when adding characteristics
    - the wrong assignment is made from the infoobject to a dimension in webi when combining several characteristics in the WebI report (for example the 'customer' field holds the 'date' and the 'date' field is empty.
    I think it has something to do with BO that starts from the text of an infoobject instead of from the key.
    Also I constantly have to refresh the data when adding fields to the report.
    Did anybody have similar issues? How did you solve them?
    I also tried 'restructuring' the universe by deleting everything that's less relevant for the report, and taking the longest available text as dimension with key of the info object as detail and this seemed to work a lot better. However we shouldn't have to restructure a universe that's generated from a query?

    We had a the same thing.  Assuming it is the same cause, it is a known issue.  SAP had us install two Notes on BW and the problem disappeared..  Evidently it has to do with an MDX generation problem.  See response below and do some investigation.
    This is a known issue.
    Here are the notes that fix this issue. The second note has two composite notes in it that will need to be applied as well if they still have problems after they install the first two.
    There are some items that are broken in SP6. You'll notice that SAP note 1404328 is already in SP6. You'll still need to install it again along with the second SAP note 1420169
    Please install both of these and try your work flow again. If it's still not working, then you'll need to go through the composite notes in the second SAP note 1420169.

  • Date issue in webi report after migration to XI 3.1

    Hello All,
    We had designed a webi report in BOXIR2 with run date present in report header section. This report was working fine in XIR2 environment.
    However after migrating this report to XI 3.1 with sp2 and fp2.2, we have observed that date part is getting eliminated from the report header. If date is 13/01/2010, then only 13 is visible and rest of the date is getting out of report. This happens when we export report to PDF (We need final output in PDF).
    The same thing was working fine in XIR2. From 'properties' section of report,  we have verified that report format has not changed. Also we are using latest version of Adobe (9.2).
    Can you suggest us the steps to resolve this issue?

    When you view the Report in WebI Format is the Date shown correct ?
    When you export the Report in xls. is the Date shown correct ?
    Could you please re- validate your formular in XI 3.1 for the date
    Compare the Format of the Object in the Universe between Rel.2 and XI 3.1 (if the Date informations in an object in your Universe)
    Only Adobe Reader 8.1.2 and 9.0 are supported. Can you please install one of these versions and retry ?

  • Q: SAP BI Hierarchy look in WebI report

    Hi Experts,
    I am trying to create a WebI report displaying a hierarhcy and some measures. I wonder if there is any way to get the report to look more like a classic SAP report displaying hiearchies?
    Something like the following example:
    1) First view of the report:
    Hier. Level 1:  $300
    2) Choose to drill down to next level:
    Hier. Level 1 - Hier Level 2: $100
    Hier. Level 1 - Hier Level 2: $200
    Currently if I make a report with the design in 1 above and drill down; "Hier. Level 1" will be exchanged with "Hier. Level 2" and no longer displayed. I still want to see the top level of the hierarchy after the drill down.
    Thank you in advance for any suggestions,
    Best regards,

    Hi Amr,
    Thank you for your response. I have read the post and the manual, but the problem is not to define the drill down, the problem is to get the result displayed as I want.
    We have:
    Hier. Level 1: $300
    and drill down we get:
    Hier Level 2: $100
    Hier Level 2: $200
    I want:
    We have:
    Hier. Level 1: $300
    and drill down we get:
    Hier. Level 1 - Hier Level 2: $100
    Hier. Level 1 - Hier Level 2: $200
    We have:
    Hier. Level 1: $300
    and drill down we get:
    Hier. Level 1
         - Hier Level 2: $100
         - Hier Level 2: $200
    Any other ideas?
    Best regards,

  • Prompt issue in webi Report

    Hi All,
    My webi report have two date prompt i.e start date & end date.During report refresh if I give the dates which doesn't have any data/wrong data then I'm getting standard error as "NO data to Fetch".
    1.Here My concern is how and where do it.
    i.e Changing  "NO data to Fetch". to custom one. e.g Dates (start date & end date) doesn't have any data like that... 
    2. In the same report if it is in tabular format with given prompts have no data then empty table structure  is displayed. When I change this table to any chart(pie or bar or line..) nothing is displayed for the same prompts. i.e. How can we display empty structure of chart similar to that of table if given prompts are wrong/ not having any data.
    Any help is highly appreciated..
    Suresh Aluri.

    Hi Suresh,
    Here is the complete explaination:
    Consider the scenario that you have 1 data provider in the report lets name it DP, which is not returning any row for the selected date range.
    1. Union the main query with the dummy Select 'A','B','C',0,0,0 from dual - (Eg given for oracle)
        When the main query returns no row, this dummy query will return 1 row, which will suppress the default pop-up
        of - "no data to retreive"
    2. Place a cell in the report, with the desired error message written. Background white and no borders and font white.
    3. Place the block above this cell i.e. one above the other. Check the property to hide block when empty.
    4. Create alterer to make the font black or to any other color and apply it tto he cell created in step 2.
        Enable the alerter when DP returns only 1 row.
    I hope the steps are clear.. and solution helps you.
