a string longer than 65534 bytes is not supported In Hadoop. the extra information is truncated.SAP Business Intelligence Suite 4.1 Release Restrictions Crystal Reports Reports that contain hierarchy variables and hierarchy node variables may need to be re-saved to the BI platform When setting SAP BW prompt values individually during scheduling for a Crystal Reports report that contains a hierarchy variable and a hierarchy node variable. the STRING type is mapped to a length of 65534 bytes in Crystal Reports. Crystal Reports 2013: For Hadoop JDBC connections. for the fix to be implemented in your existing BI platform reports. This problem is resolved by showing all the prompts to edit when the variable dependencies are unknown. 5/29/13 1/14 . you must resave those reports to the BI platform. no matter how long or short the string is. HttpOnly session cookies are not supported by Crystal Reports Web Java (applet) viewer When HttpOnly session cookies are enabled. If the string is longer than 65534 bytes. However. The information is truncated to maximize support for Crystal Reports functionality such as sort. Workaround: Use the Crystal Reports Web (html) viewer when HttpOnly session cookies are enabled. if the hierarchy variable prompt value is set and you attempt to set the hierarchy node variable prompt value. link. This can occur when variable dependencies are turned off. the Crystal Reports Web Java (applet) viewer repeatedly prompts for logon. the hierarchy node variable list of values will show up as a flat list. and so on.

That is. dynamic calculations behave as expected. A sort icon may appear on unsorted data in a migrated workspace When you migrate an SAP BusinessObjects Voyager workspace that has a sort applied across its measure members. a sort icon appears in the Analysis. remove any sort applied across measure members in a Voyager workspace before migrating to Analysis. favorite filters for structure hierarchies can be created only using the "Filter" panel. they do not appear in the analysis when the root measures member is collapsed. Dynamic calculations may not appear correctly in workspaces migrated from Voyager When a workspace that connects to Oracle Essbase is migrated from SAP BusinessObjects Voyager to SAP BusinessObjects Analysis. edition for OLAP The Create Favorite Filter button in the metadata explorer is not enabled for structure hierarchies In Analysis. and not using the buttons in the metadata explorer. 5/29/13 2/14 . the custom group may appear in the middle of the hierarchy. dynamic calculations do not appear correctly at first. because sorting across measure members is disabled in Analysis. Custom groups can be repositioned within a hierarchy when you apply a sort When a custom group is added to an analysis as a hierarchy member and you sort the data by measure. you cannot restore the prompt values for the active variant by clicking it again in the Variants menu. For example. edition for OLAP workspace. You can select the active variant in this dialog box to restore its prompt values. you must click More to open the “Variants” dialog box. if you select a variant and then change some individual prompt values. The measures are collapsed. You can only select a different variant from this menu. As a result. you cannot reselect it in the Variants menu that shows the ten most recent variants. To prevent this icon from appearing. instead of as the first or last member at the root level. edition for OLAP. Active variants cannot be reselected in the Variants menu If you select a variant for an Analysis. edition for OLAP workspace. edition for OLAP. the custom group is sorted along with the other members. but the calculations still appear in the analysis.

they do not include the calculated members. that is. If the custom group includes regular members that are the siblings of these calculated members. Improvements to this behavior are planned for future releases of Analysis. the Analysis workspace fails to open. When all measure hierarchies are removed from the axis of an analysis. If the custom calculation is created on a measure dimension. but they are not included in the aggregated totals.1 Release Restrictions Workspaces based on MSAS data may fail to open after calculated members are changed in the data source Analysis. the Analysis workspace opens and a message is displayed to alert you that the custom calculation is removed from the workspace. Restoring the SSAS calculated member to its original name and location in the hierarchy resolves both of these problems. the calculated members are displayed in the hierarchy when the custom group is expanded or used as a standalone hierarchy. renamed. edition for OLAP.SAP Business Intelligence Suite 4. or repositioned. To avoid this problem. any calculations on that axis are also removed Measure-based calculations are removed from the analysis when there are no measure hierarchies on the same axis. Custom groups with server-side calculated members may not display the correct totals The totals for a custom group are incorrect when the custom group includes one or more calculated members that are defined in the OLAP data source off of a non-measure hierarchy. Server-side calculated members may appear incorrectly in custom group hierarchies The hierarchy of a custom group may not appear correctly if the custom group is based on a data source that has calculated members defined off of a non-measure hierarchy. The totals for the custom group are displayed correctly. The calculated members are displayed when the custom group is expanded or viewed as a standalone hierarchy. If the custom calculation is created on a non-measure dimension. edition for OLAP workspaces based on MSAS data may fail to open after calculated members in the data source are deleted. The calculations reappear when a measure is added to the axis. make sure that at least one measure hierarchy is present on the same axis as the calculations. 5/29/13 3/14 . This problem occurs when the workspace includes a custom calculation based on the calculated member that is changed in the data source.
