BQY job having custom variable date filter generates below error message when uploading and trying to schedule in Workspace. The Date filter should automatically set Today as filter. However, in Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) it doesn't work because the filter only accepts actual dates in the values and gives an error as soon as it sees the Custom Values like First of Month or Today.

Error :

Type mismatch error.
Detailed Message: INVALID DATA TYPE FOR LIMIT:For input string: "FirstOfPreviousMonth"
