MDAS error getRepresentation

Hello,

we built some OLAP Analysis views using OLAP connections to MS SQL Server Analyiss Services 2008. In some cases, during navigation of the view, an MDAS error arises:

Failed to get representation: RuntimeException occurred : java.lang.NullPointerException: while trying to invoke the method com.sap.ip.bi.bics.dataaccess.provider.queryview.resultset.IProviderResultSet.getState() of an object loaded from field com.sap.ip.bi.bics.dataaccess.consumer.impl.queryview.resultset.ResultSet.m_providerResultSet of an object loaded from local variable 'this'

I checked notes but the only one that talks abou this error is not applicable (1560100  - BI4.0 Advanced Analysis Web problem: The MDAS Service encountered an error) because it refers to a connection with a BW environment.

Could anyone give me some hint about this problem?

Thanks for the support!

It seems that the problem arises every time I select multiple values in Background Dimensions. I'm reproducing the issue for different views/olap connections following these steps:

1) I open an existing view - in background there are some dimensions with single value filters

2) I select multiple values for a dimension (example: Year= 2011, 2012)

3) I select multiple values for another dimension (example: Month: Jan,Feb,Mar,Apr,May,Jun)

With the combination of these two multiple filters in background the problem arises.

good morning Graciela,

there are different kind of MDAS problem. If your problem is exactly the same that I described, you can solve it installing the latest patch level. I had this problem when I was in SP2. When I upgraded to SP4 Patch 1, the problem disappeared.

Let me know if it helps.
