Error description

  • When using a DMR, the member can be translated in Framework
    Manager. This is the case when using the Cognos 8 Sample package
    "GO Data Warehouse (analysis)".  You can verify the translation
    either in the Report Studio user interface (Insertable Objects >
    Source Tab) or when run the report (add the member to a
    crosstab).  When using the root member in a tree prompt, the
    translation is not correct. Instead of the content local, the
    root member is translated using the expressionLocale of the
    Report Spec. When change the report design locale (File > Report
    Package > Language) the selected locale will be used to
    translate the root member within the tree prompt.  This issue
    only occurs in a tree prompt - not in the result in a crosstab.
    As well, only the root member is affected. All other members
    will be translated correct.   This behavior appears also in
    Query Studio. This behavior is reproducible in the following
    version:  Cognos 8 BI 8.4.1 FP1
    C8BISRVR_UPDATE_version=C8BISRVR-AW64-ML-RTM-8.4.103.16-0
