Wildcard Selection on query in BI7.0

Hi Experts,

We are currently on Stack 15 & Support Pack 17 of BI 7.0. We created reports with mandatory variables and whenever you enter the "*" in the variable screen it gives an error stating that "characteristic does not support pattern selection. Specify a value for variable." Reading previous threads on this site I discovered that this was not originally available in 7.0, however it was fixed in SPS13, so can someone explain why we are still getting this error?

Also we don't see the symbols in the variable selection screen like 3.x. IE = or > or < or contains pattern etc, I guess those were taken out as well?

Can someone give me an update on this, I am curious to find out what we are doing wrong. Thank you.
