2672955 - Condition Inactive After Removing Characteristic from Report


You created a key figure condition in a report and are using that in a report. Now you remove the characteristic used in that condition, you add it back to the view and realize that the condition is not active anymore and the report values are different.

A condition is specific to a report view. When you remove the characteristic the condition becomes inactive and when you try to add the characteristic back to the view the condition will still be inactive as the view has changed. This is the expected system behavior.


This is the current system behavior and is working as designed. If you want to change the standard behavior, please go to our SAP Influence Forum.

The only workaround is to go and select the original view from the view list again, so that it loads the saved view with active condition.
