2388600 - Formula could not be computed: Error: Object is unknown: [Time].[].. Try rewriting the formula in SAP Analytics Cloud


The following error occurs when you are in the Modeler and you try to save a formula:

  • ResultLookup([H111100], [d/OPERATING_INCOME_Time] = "2017")
  • Formula could not be computed: Error: Object is unknown: [Time].[].. Try rewriting the formula.



  • SAP Analytics Cloud 2016.21

Reproducing the Issue

Create a new formula referencing a dimension member or dimension property.


The "Content Namespace" is missing in the dimension reference in the formula.


Add the "Content Namespace" (i.e. t.8) to the dimension reference in the formula, defined in the System Administration Menu >> System Configuration screen:

  • ResultLookup([H111100], [d/t.8:OPERATING_INCOME_Time] = "2017")
