Query reading the data

Hi  all,

we are involved in a SAP BW Upgrade 7.0 --> 7.3.

During the manual follow up steps,  we are trying to launch some  Bex query to test if all works fine.

Some of this queries returns us the following  message:

Query XXX reading the data;

the extended message says:


You need to replace variable XXX from as a boolean value. It can therefore only have the values 0 and 1.

Entering (MWKZ = , WAERS = , ...) under Currency/Unit is therefore not advisable. Only dimension = number is allowed.

System Response

The query cannot be generated and executed.


Change the definition of the variables.1.

Procedure for System Administration

Our SAP BW System is Version 7.3 support package 10.

We found just the note   1873747  that seems like our message error but, unfortunately, the note itself have been just released with our support package  (SAPKB73010).

Anyone have an idea?

Thx in advance

Best regards
