Cant see BEx Key Figures in my Webi Query as (Measures)

Hello Experts,

I am trying to develop a Web Intelligence Query using BEx query as a source using BICS connection, The BEx query as a source is quite complex in terms of its calculations, formulas, CKF variables RKF and Cells etc.

My problem is that when i pull this BEx query into Business Objects Webi query designer, I can see all the BEx Characteristics as Dimension in the webi but I don't see any Key Fig as measures in the query designer, This is really weird and I have never come across of this kind of situation before.

I can see Measure (folder) and if I open it I can see Measure Formatted values underneath with Type: String (see attachment) but there is no KF CKF RKF in it.

Note that as I mentioned above there are quite a number of CKF RKF Formulas Variables and Cells in the BEx query but I don't see anything except Characteristics/Dimension

The structure of BEx Query is designed as follows.

All CELLS created are in columns area (anything in the column area is not shown in the webi query) IS THIS THE PROBLEM ?

All Regular KF are in Rows and are shown in the webi under dimension called ROW (there is no dimension in the rows)

All Characteristics are dragged & used in the Free Characteristics and Filters area accordingly as required.

Will really appreciate your help if you advise what went wrong, either it is BICS connection error or could it be BEx query structure issue.

Hello Imran,

you might want to look at Analysis Office or Analysis OLAP or Design Studio.

Web Intelligence is relational product and will always struggle with those kind of scenarios.

In case you are "mixing" different data types - for example percentages and numbers - in a single column of your structure, Web Intelligence will return the data as strings and not as numbers.
