Invalid Selection for Characteristics

Hi Experts,

Just would like if any of you would know a fix for this issue.  One of our clients informed us that they were

getting this issue when running their workbook.

A warning message: Invalid selection for characteristics XXXXX

Details: Characteristics XXXXX has no master data for YYYYY or you do not have authorization


However, the issue is not seen when we run the query in BEx Analyzer

The error in AO comes up when we apply a Filter Member to a certain dimension.

If we take out the Filter Member, issue is not present.

We are using version AO

I saw a similar post but seems like I need to open a new discussion for it:

Thank you!

Kind Regards,


Former Member
