2614469 - Self Created Relative Selection not Visible in Data Source


You create a relative selection of type Data Source but you cannot see it in reports based on this data source after creation.


  • SAP Cloud for Customer
  • SAP Business ByDesign

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Business Analytics work center.
  2. Create a new relative selection for a date (ByD - view Design Data Source, C4C -  view Common Task).
  3. Fill in the necessary details and choose the type Data Source.
  4. Go to a report based on this data source and you will see that the created relative selection is not available.


For special characteristics, like Currency, Date, Month, Year, and so on, there is a specific relative select type. Such fields only work with this relative select type.


Please choose the special type Date for date fields and the relative selection will appear in the report.
