BEx query designer removes parentheses

Hi all,

The query designer removes parentheses from a formula after clicking the OK button.

The original formula:

(key-figure1 / 100) * key-figure2

The formula after clicking OK:

key-figure1 / 100 * key-figure2

The formula without the parentheses does not give the desired result. Does anybody know a solution for this.

We are on BW 7.01 and BEx SP8, patch 1, revision 581.

Formula1= (key-figure1 / 100)

Formula2 = Formula1 * key-figure2.

In display properties of Formula1 select 'Always Hide' & also mention number of decimal places.
