2796108 - Error: 'Year not between 1900 and 2050" when attempting to import data in SAP Analytics Cloud


  • Error when importing data.
  • When importing data that contains dates in SAP Analytics Cloud, it cannot import all the rows? 
  • If a date is greater than December 31, 2050, the data cannot be imported. Can the date range limit be modified in SAP Analytics Cloud?


  • SAP Analytics Cloud 

Reproducing the Issue

  1. In SAP Analytics Cloud, import data from any data source that contains date.
  2. Some rows of data cannot be imported.
  3. When looking at the error, it states: "Year not between 1900 and 2050"


  • When importing data in SAP Analytics Cloud, the date limit is between 1900/01/01 to 2050/12/31, and this is why it cannot import the rows of data that have dates outside the accepted range. 


  • There is no option in SAP Analytics Cloud to change the accepted date range limit when importing data.
  • The only potential workaround when creating a Model, is to change the type from: Date Dimension, to: Generic Dimension, but the drawback is the Dimension can not be used as a time dimension on visualizations.
