Query key date variables not working for SAP BW

Hello,

When trying to import data from SAP BW query using a query key date variable then it is not possible to enter the right value in the prompt making it impossible to use the query.

If I use a date then it throws a MDX error.

Hope someone can help.

 

Thanks

Thanks for the reply. The Power BI prompt will not accept the right format. It says it is not a date. And if I enter a date then I get the MDX error. I tested the format using MDXTEST in SAP BW and here it works fine.

Thanks @v-yuta-msft . Already raised a ticket. Found a work around by using custom MDX, where I can construct the MDX statement with the correct format for the variable.
