BI 7 Upgrade - Problem with Authorisation Variable on Compounded Char

Dear All,

We have just upgraded our DEV environment from 3.5 to BI7 and have encountered a weird problem with 1 of our authorization variables.

Our authorization check variable checks the values from a table that the users are allowed to use (which includes the selection screen). There are 2 variables 1 for the uncompounded char and 1 for the compounded char, the uncompounded variable is working just fine but not the other. When the user tries to pick a value, they are presented with not just their restricted list but ALL the values.

Can anyone explain this? Has BI 7 changes the way authorizations work with Compounded Characteristics ?

Before anyone asks, these variables work just fine on 3.5 and are working just fine in our QA and PRD environments.

Help required urgently.
