I am getting the error above when I am trying to create new characteristic record manually by right clicking on the characteristic InfoObject and clicking Maintain Master Data. My BW version is 2.1C.

Any ideas?

Hey Mfarid2 - Look at OSS notes 565393 and 429196.  They might point you in the right direction.

basisbabe, thank you for your response. Can you tell me what is OSS and how do I check these 2 notes? Forgive me, I am an absolute beginner in SAP and BW.

OSS is the place to find patches and other corrections when you encounter errors in standard SAP programs. It is the official solution database from SAP, with solutions for code errors etc. in standard SAP (Online Service System). If you have a problem, ALWAYS first try to find a solution at OSS, to avoid unnescessary questions at user forums.

If you don't know how to use oss or how to logon to OSS, you probably should consult an application manager at your company who does know how to solve problems with SAP. You have to be registered at SAP to enter OSS (username S000.......), to be able to find solutions for your problems. In general, some people at your company are registered at SAP and are able to check these OSS notes (probably at a higher level of your company's 'incident solving hierarchy')
