1983593 - Report Shows an Asterisk Instead of the Key Figure Value

Symptom

You are running a report and you noticed that a key figure shows an asterisk (*) instead of the key figure value.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Business Analytics work center choose Design Report view
  2. Find and Run XYZ report
  3. Enter the desired values on the Selection screen and select Go
  4. The Key figure XYZ in some cases shows the * instead of the expected value

Cause

The system behavior is as designed.

Resolution

The reason why the report shows asterisk (*) instead of a value, is because for some fields (such as accounts) there may be multiple accounting documents with different quantities and unit of measure. For example 1Ea, 1Kg, 1pallet etc.  
As these values cannot be combined, the asterisk (*) is shown.
To show the values you may drill down the report data further by adding additional characteristics to the report.
