1962321 - Understanding BW Query Results of Nested Selections on the same Characteristic


A query is returning unexpected results when multiple selections on the same characteristic are used in nested selections or nested restricted key figures. It seems, that some of the selections/restrictions are ignored.

Sample: In the following query, no data instead of the value 4,00 EUR for Germany (3rd column) might be expected. The restriction 'AT' of the structure element "AT + DE (restricted AT)" seems to be ignored.


The 3rd column "AT + DE (restricted AT)" is a selection that applies to the restricted key figure (RKF) used in column 2 "AT + DE".


The restricted key figure "AT + DE" has the basis key figure 0AMOUNT and is restricted to the countries "AT" and "DE" and is also used on column 2 for better understanding.
