Symptoms

In Smart View v11.1.2.1.102, the Essbase grid C-API now returns grid dimension metadata information. However, the metadata information returned does not match with the user selected alias table.

To reproduce:

1.  In Smart View, connect to SampleU.Basic.
2.  Select to use alias table "GermanNames".
3.  Retrieve an empty grid.

Expected result: grid meta data dimension names match user selected "GermanNames" - Jahr, Produkt, Markt, Szenario, Umsatze .

Actual result: grid dimension names are in English and not matching user selected "GermanNames" alias table - Year, Product, Market, Scenario, Measures.
