Symptoms

When a Dashboard prompt is created on any criteria with value containing semi colon (;) in the data, (For eg:V5x;Flip Phone), OBIEE is recognizing it as two separate values instead of one and results are not getting displayed.

The following message was displayed instead of the report results:

The specified criteria didn't result in any data. This is often caused by applying filters and/or selections that are too restrictive or that contain incorrect values. Please check your Analysis Filters and try again. The filters currently being applied are shown below.
