2550462 - Webi: #ERROR shows for variables that point to a hierarchy level that is not returned in a refresh of a Webi document that is connected to a HANA view through a HANA direct OLAP connection.


  • In BI4.2, a Webi report is connected directly to an OLAP HANA connection to a HANA view that has a hierarchy with levels.
  • Variables are created that refer to the hierarchy levels.
  • The report is refreshed so that data is retrieved that doesn't return data for all of the levels.
  • The level objects that do not have data are not returned as available objects which results in the variables that point to those levels showing #ERROR in the report.
