Issue on Live Office Universe UNX Query


We are on SAP Bi 4.1 SP7 starting to use Live Office Add-On.  When I try to select a particular UNX universe following error message appears

There is an error in XML document (1001, 105).

Error only arise when trying to use this universe. For the rest we have tried tool works foine, so probably is some issue related with UNX definition.

Any idea?



Hi Bayrem,

You mention goes on the right direction. Effectively it seems that Live Office has some problems to consume the content of the XML generated by the Web API Restful service when it does contain some special characters.

In our case using Fiddler we have been able to trace the message sent to Live office and to discover the special characters that were causing LO to fail.

In this particular case the special characters were copied (I a not sure if it is a circle or something similar) from a Word document into the description of a universe dimension. Once we have removed the characters from the universe LO works fine again.

Hope it helps people to trace the issue on similar situations.

Thanks SAP Support to give us the idea to trace the content with fiddler!
