Business Objects universe error

I have 5 identical universes in Business Objects V.4.0. Four of them work, but 1 doesn't. This is a query statement for one that works:

SELECT
  RUSSDW4618.dbo.INVOICE_DETAIL.Invoice_Number,
  sum(RUSSDW4618.dbo.RUS_INVOICE_STANDARD_COST.Cost_Price),
  sum(RUSSDW4618.dbo.RUS_INVOICE_STANDARD_COST.Quantity * RUSSDW4618.dbo.RUS_INVOICE_STANDARD_COST.Cost_Price),
  RUSSDW4618.dbo.PRODUCT.Product_Code_Unpacked
FROM
  RUSSDW4618.dbo.PRODUCT INNER JOIN RUSSDW4618.dbo.INVOICE_DETAIL ON (RUSSDW4618.dbo.INVOICE_DETAIL.Product_Code_Packed=RUSSDW4618.dbo.PRODUCT.Product_Code_Packed and RUSSDW4618.dbo.INVOICE_DETAIL.Invoice_Date >= RUSSDW4618.dbo.PRODUCT.Start_Date and RUSSDW4618.dbo.INVOICE_DETAIL.Invoice_Date < RUSSDW4618.dbo.PRODUCT.End_Date)
   INNER JOIN RUSSDW4618.dbo.RUS_INVOICE_STANDARD_COST ON (RUSSDW4618.dbo.INVOICE_DETAIL.Invoice_Number=RUSSDW4618.dbo.RUS_INVOICE_STANDARD_COST.Invoice_Number  AND  RUSSDW4618.dbo.INVOICE_DETAIL.Invoice_Date=RUSSDW4618.dbo.RUS_INVOICE_STANDARD_COST.Invoice_Date  AND  RUSSDW4618.dbo.INVOICE_DETAIL.Invoice_Number=RUSSDW4618.dbo.RUS_INVOICE_STANDARD_COST.Invoice_Number and RUSSDW4618.dbo.INVOICE_DETAIL.Invoice_Date=RUSSDW4618.dbo.RUS_INVOICE_STANDARD_COST.Invoice_Date and RUSSDW4618.dbo.INVOICE_DETAIL.DbCr_Line_Number=RUSSDW4618.dbo.RUS_INVOICE_STANDARD_COST.DbCr_Line_Number)
GROUP BY
  RUSSDW4618.dbo.INVOICE_DETAIL.Invoice_Number,
  RUSSDW4618.dbo.PRODUCT.Product_Code_Unpacked

This is the statement created in the one that doesn't work:

  SELECT
    PUSSDW4618.dbo.INVOICE_DETAIL.Invoice_Number,
    sum(PUSSDW4618.dbo.PUS_INVOICE_STANDARD_COST.Quantity * PUSSDW4618.dbo.PUS_INVOICE_STANDARD_COST.Cost_Price),
    sum(PUSSDW46184.dbo.PUS_INVOICE_STANDARD_COST.Cost_Price),
    PUSSDW4618.dbo.PRODUCT.Product_Code_Unpacked
  FROM
    PUSSDW4618.dbo.INVOICE_DETAIL
  GROUP BY
    PUSSDW4618.dbo.INVOICE_DETAIL.Invoice_Number


I've checked all the joins, and they're identical in all universes. Can you advise me in what else to check?

  sum(PUSSDW46184.dbo.PUS_INVOICE_STANDARD_COST.Cost_Price),

Can you look at the SQL in the report when you edit the query?

DId you install the services packs for B) 4.0?

Yes, the service packs are installed. I can't get as far as a report. When I create the query I receive an error message. If I paste the query generated by BO into SQL Server, I get an error. Only one table is referenced in the BO query, when I'm using fields from 3 different tables.

Have you tried doing an integrity check in the universe?

Sorry for the delay in getting back here. I received a new laptop at work and was unable to log in to the server for a couple of weeks. The data foundation was fine, but the business layer was somehow disconnected from the database. I had to bring each element in again.
