Where are our variants..?

Hi Experts

We are migrating 3.x Workbooks to BEx 7.0 by answering OK to the question 'Do you want to open the 3.x workbook for upgrade'? when we open a 3.x workbook in the new Analyzer.

This seems to be working OK. However any existing variants for the workbooks are no longer available in the Variable Selection screen of the newly migrated workbook.

Can anyone enlighten me on how to get these back. Or are they gone for good? Our users are not happy about losing their variants!

points will be awarded of course..

Hi,

I found one SAP note similar to your problem.Take a look.

Reason

As the variants in NetWeaver 2004s BI systems are stored in a different storage than BW 3.x variants, the variants are no longer visible in Netweaver 2004s BI Systems in NetWeaver 2004s BI runtime.

But they are still visible when using BW 3.x runtime.

Appy SAP Note : 1003481

also see the note : 981693

Regards,

aanand
