2875838 - Error When Creating a Relative Selection: 'The application running deliberately caused an abort with short dump'

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Business Analytics work center.
  2. Go to the view Common Tasks.
  3. Select Design Relative Selections.
  4. Click on New and select Dynamic Values.
  5. Select 'Date' as a Type.
  6. Select 'Any Selection' as Value Entry.
  7. Click on Add.
  8. Design as following for an example: 

            From Last 12 Month           To Next 6 Month

  1. Click on Ok.

 You can see the error message 'The application running deliberately caused an abort with short dump. (termination: RABAX_STATE)'.


It occurs because the 'Last' option has a meaning of end/final. Hence, 'Last 12 Month', without any shift selected, would actually be interpreted as 'January - December, 9999' (Last 12 Months from the calendar) for an example. Hence, the 'Last' option has a meaning of end while 'Previous' has a meaning of going back.


Given the differences in meaning between 'Last' and 'Previous' options, in order to retrieve the records for the time that have passed, you can use 'Previous' instead 'Last'.
