Could not enter characteristic value 0CURRENCY with SID 2 in /BI0/SIOBJNM

Ok, I'm trying to load data into an infocube and I get this message:

Could not enter characteristic value 0CURRENCY with SID 2 in table /BI0/SIOBJNM


Check the table /BI0/SIOBJNM (transaction se16). Find out why the record with the value 0CURRENCY and the SID 2 cannot be entered into the table. Note that there is also a unique index in the 'SID' column. This means that each SID appears a maximum of once.

Use transaction RSRV, test "Comparison of Number Range and Maximum SID" for characteristic 0IOBJNM, to determine whether there is an inconsistency between the number range object and the maximum SID. If there is an inconsistency, you can also repair it in this transaction. If this does not remove the problem, carry out the other master data tests in transaction RSRV for characteristic 0IOBJNM.

Now, the problem is that when I go to RSRV and I try to do that, it doesn't let me. I got a message saying:

0IOBJNM is not a characteristic but an InfoObject of type DPA

Also, I'm getting short dumps at the moment of activating BI content and they end up in the same place.

We're in BW 7.3 and support package level is 0.

Any help or ideas, please?
