  • This is a known issue with the EC Ad Hoc domain in Ad Hoc wherein the maximum join depth limit is being reached when the HANA database runs a query.
  • The report has columns from multiple country-specific Job Information and Personal Information tables.


  • The report query becomes too large for the system to execute as it involves multiple countries. Ideally, fields from only 2 countries’ Job Information should be included in one adhoc report. However, the number of countries depends on the volume of data.
