SAP BE connection is able to connect but fails when filtering a column

I'm having an issue with the SAP BW Connector when applying a filter.   I first connect fine... it previews the data fine, but then when i go to filter down to 1 years data, it fails as the screenshot below:


"Invalid MDX command with ON"

Error Code: -2147467259

Hi Piterab,


My colleague has experienced the exact same problem and found out that if you use "contains" instead "equals to" as operator in your filter, it works fine (at least for a text column).


That's clearly a bug in the way filters are translated to MDX queries against SAP BW.


Unfortunately, our experience so far with this connector has not been very good 😞
