2663189 - Error "Could not convert from XXX to XXX" in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC) when entering data in default currency


"Could not convert from XXX to XXX" error when entering data in an entity with default currency in a story with cross calculation currency filter set to default currency.

Additionally, all existing data in the story disappears from the story

It's unclear why this message is occurring when entering data to an entity in default currency (hence no currency conversion should be needed)

Additionally, the currency table has been maintained for the currency conversion rates so there should be no missing currency error messages.


  • SAP Analytics Cloud 2018.11.1

Reproducing the Issue

2) Open input story with currency cross calculation set to default currency

4) Enter data for a cell with organization member in default currency

Several errors occur and all data in the story except for the value entered disappears.


This issue is currently under investigation by Development.
