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.

  • Default prompt values in webI report???

    I am using BO XI 3.1 on BW universe, I have a prompt A in the prompt window which has many Lov's but user will freequently use only three values out of it.
    So I want to make those three values to be default for that promp A when ever the report gets refreshed, so that it will be easy for user not to search in the big list for those 3 values.
    Any inputs please.

    You can make some values as default prompt values by webi report.
    1) Open the webi report.
    2) Edit the query then go to the prompt
    3) Go to the prompt properties checked the chekcbox "Set default values" and type the three values and ok.
    So next time user refresh the report all three values come in the filter  default.They can remove or add more values in the list.but every time all values come in the filter.

  • 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 .

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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?

  • 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

  • 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 ?

  • Displaying Prompt values in webi report

    How to display prompt value in my webi report.
    For one prompt value I can user Userresponse function.
    In one of my report, I have a prompt for Date, which also should be displayed in the report under one field. I am using the below formula: =UserResponse("Enter Date:")
    But my new requirement is User wants a Date Range for a particual trasaction date. I created a report level prompt like
    Transaction Date Between "Enter Tran Date(Start):" and "Enter Tran Date(End):"
    I need to display the start date and end date user selected under one field Date in my webi report.
    how should I do that.
    Please share your thoughts.

    1.Drag two blank cell on report. on one blank cell and on formula editor type following formula.
    =UserResponse("Enter Tran Date(Start):" )
    This will show you start date in the cell.
    3.Similarly in another cell type the following formula
    =UserResponse("Enter Tran Date(End):" )
    This will show you End Date in respective cell.
    Do revert in case of any queries.

  • Failed to fill the prompts when creating Webi Report

    I am having some difficulties when I was trying to creating Webi reports. It shows error when I tried to fill in the prompts before the query runs. The report data comes from the SAP Business Warehouse. So far it is my understanding for the query flow:
    Step 1
    SAP Business Warehouse <-- Query A (BW Query) <--
    Step 2
    BO Universe <-- Query B (By drag & drop) <-- Application(e.g. Webi, QaaWS)
    When I run the Query A (using 'Analyzer' in 'Business Explorer') to extract data from BW, the query appears 7 optional parameters for filtering. After I filled some of the fields, the query runs fine -> Step 1 OK.
    When I want to do the same thing in a BO approach by building query (i.e. Query B) to draw data from the universe (which points to the Query A in BW) using different applications(e.g. QaaWS, Webi via InfoViewApp, Java Webservice SDK: QueryService & ReportEngine, etc), the application will display 7 optional prompts (i.e. those referring to those appeared in Query A) before the query executes. However, when I tried to fill those prompts, the application appears some fill prompts error and no query job is submitted to the BW -> Step 2 Fails.
    When I skipped to fill those optional prompts in building the Query B, the query job can be submitted and the query result is returned.
    Before the error occurs, I have been working on building similar Webi report and everything goes fine. I feel so strange that why the error appears so suddenly and I would like to ask how to avoid it.
    Many Thanks,

    Hi Adil,
    I am using BOXIR3 and a screenshot is attached below:
    I have built the query in InfoView by drag & drop and after I click the 'Run Query' (the circled area), it is expected I will be asked to fill in some optional prompts (from BW query). Instead, an error shown about 2 minutes after clicking the button,.

  • Performance Issue with Webi report uses SAP BI Query as the data source

    I have created a Webi ad-hoc report which connects to a SAP BI query through BO OLAP universe.
    The layout of Webi is the exactly the same as the BI query.  There are filters in the Webi to restrict the number of data extraction, but even with data result of 5000 rows, it took about 30 seconds.
    If I execute the BI query with the same filter restriction, it tooks less than 10 seconds.
    It seems that large percentage of time is consumed at the MDX part.
    Is there any tuning method that could speed up the process time of MDX?
    Thank you.
    Edited by: Justine Liu on Mar 18, 2009 6:59 AM

    please take a look here:
    [] (Look under related notes)
    It includes references to various performance improvements of the MDX interface. From what I saw there it is advisable to upgrade your SAP BI (7.0)  up to at least Support Package 21 (you are currently on SP 15).
    This may also be interesting for you: There is a new Fix Pack 1.4 coming out for BOBJ XI 3.1. Combined with the related SAP Enh.Pack (not sure about the version of this one) should also improve WebI performance. This fix pack is not yet officially released though but it should not take look.
    I recommend that you try the upgrade to Support Package 21 first.
    BTW it is also advisable to take a look in the results of your MDX query (e.g using the MDXTEST transaction). You should make sure that your query is indeed restricted as expected. Sometimes the results you see in SAP native reporting tools (e.g. BEx Analyzer) differ from those returned from the MDX component, depending on the way variables/restrictions where defined in the query designer. It is all about making sure that there is no apples/oranges comparison here.

  • Issue with Web report interation on CRM Portal (7.0)

    System Landscape/Access route: CRM Portal (7.0) => One BI System (ABAP + JAVA = 7.3 SPS 5 Patch 3)
    After we upgraded our dual SID One BI system (BI-ABAP + BI-JAVA) to 7.3 SPS 5 Patch level 3; the CRM Portal (version 7.0) which uses Application Integration iViews to launch One BI reports has following issues:
    1. Buttons like Open, Save, etc. do not work
    2. Drag-drop of characteristics from Free-Characteristics into report does not work.
    These functionalities work for the same query if I copy the BI-Java stack URL in a separate internet browser. But the same query / URL does not work when rendered via the CRM Portal.
    All these functionalities were working prior to the One BI upgrade. Can you please guide on how to fix this issue?
    Thanks and regards,

    Kindly confirm what was the earlier version of the One BI System (ABAP + Java), before it was upgraded.

  • Issues with Web reporting..

    hi all,
    we are currently facing a requirement of the client which requires that the printing of the report should automatically be either that of a portrait or a landscape without any user intervention. is this possible???
    and is it also possible to supress the dialog box which pops up once u click on the print option???
    can anyone let me know at the earliest...
    Thanks & Regards

    Hi Manicks,
    Are you talking about the How To... Enhance Web Printing solution?
    In this solutiuon it is possible to suppress the print setting page by passing a parameter through the URL:
    P_PREVIEW_MODE = ' '
    Just add this parameter to the URL behind the print button and it whould suppress teh preview mode.
    Regarding the default landscape mode - this can be set as an attribute in the printing class. whatever you set here will be available for all the users by default.
    Hope it helps,
