Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Business Analytics work center.
  2. Go to Design Reports view.
  3. From the Show query select Modified View - All and find Purchase Orders Per Account Assignment report.

From the list of available characteristic the Item ID is not visible for selection.

Cause

While copying an SAP standard report you are reusing the original data source; here it's SRMPO_B03 - Purchase Order Account Assignment. In this case Purchase Order Item has been renamed to Item ID.

  1. Go to the Business Analytics work center.
  2. Go to Design Reports view.
  3. From the Show query select Modified View - All and find Purchase Orders Per Account Assignment report.
  4. Select the report and click on Report As Copy from the New button.
  5. Navigate to the Select Characteristics (Step 3)and find Purchase Order Item.
  6. Rename the Characteristic Purchase Order Item to name ("Item ID")

In one of the feature pack more names will be available in order to avoid different names when a report is copied.
