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?

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.
