Reproducing the Issue

  1. Using the Information Design Tool, create a UNX universe against MySQL 5.x.
  2. Create a Dimension reporting off of a table that contains a datetime field, where the Object type is Character and contains a numeric representation of the time component of the datetime field, using MySQL SQL function:  time_format(datetime_field, '%h:%i %p') and a Measure with type Numeric.
  3. Create a Web Intelligence document using the Web Intelligence Rich Client tool on this Universe. Observe no errors reporting off the Dimension and Measure.
  4. Acquire the Universe data in Lumira Desktop.  Ensure the "Preview and select data" option is selected. Observe that the Measure field appears to contain the time data for the Dimension.
  5. Go back and now deselect "Preview and select data".  Now observe the error:
