OBIEE Patch 188.8.131.52.141014 ODBC driver returned an error
After patching to 184.108.40.206.141014 it so happens that where Total Rows are used, there may be possibilities that you get “ODBC driver returned an error…..Cannot function ship the following expression…”.
The way to fix it is to edit the fact columns and change the “Aggregate Rule (Total Rows)” to “Sum” instead of Default. The strange thing is that the first fact column can be left as default from my current observations. Hope this helps everyone who encounter this error.
Update 25-November-2014: For row totals, when percentage is present, changing to SUM will cause percentage to add up which is wrong. Temporarily may need to change report based aggregation methodology to none so that incorrect figures are not displayed. I am still working on how to fix this issue.
