Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the work center Business Analytics.
  2. Go to the view Design Reports or Design Data Sources.
  3. Search for your report or data source and open it.
  4. Make the required selections and run it.

 You will see the above error message.


The currency or unit of measure ABC is not maintained as a valid currency / unit of measure (UoM) in the system. However the report or data source contains documents that have this invalid unit. This can happen if you either maintain documents such as invoices or credit memos incorrectly, or if you upload the currency / UoM into a cloud data source without maintaining it in the system first.


Please correct the document so that it uses valid currencies or units of measure. Alternatively, you can maintain the currency / UoM in the business configuration of your system, so that the system recognizes it. This can be done in the business configuration activities 'Quantities and Units of Measure' or 'Currencies' respectively.
