Formula's name not displayed properly in BEx Analyzer (after mig. to BI7)

Hello Colleagues,

I spotted some strange issue in Query ouctome display after migration to BI7.

We have a query with set of Calculated Key Figures, where 'Description' of the Key Figure is created on the basis of combination of Variables with Replacement Path and a Constant.

Everything was displayed properly before migration to BI7 (in BW 3.5), but after migration the text for 'Description' looks like it was cut. We didn't migrate queries and we run them with the old (3.5) BEx Analyzer.

For example. Let's assume that CKF1 has below definition of 'Description':

&ZTXTVAR1&
&ZTXTCAT& 
&ZTXTMON&-&ZTXTYEAR&
* 10000 'USD'

<b>When it was run before migration it looked like (I use examplary values):</b>

Standard Plan 2007

  • 10000 ‘USD’

<b>Now (in BI7) in BEx Analyzer (3.5) it looks like</b>:

Standard Plan 2007

  • 10000

<b>What is interesting, when running in Web Browser it is:</b>

Standard Plan 2007

  • 10000 ERROR

<b>When I remove for example date's variable it looks properly:</b>

Standard Plan 2007

Updated

  • 10000 ‘USD’

So it clearly looks that the text is too long for 'Description'??

The question is: what changed in comparison to the previous version (BW 3.5).

I couldn't find any OSS note on that neither relevant thread in the MarketPlace. If someone met similar issue I will be very grateful for suggestions on solution.

Thanks & Regards,
