If a Master-Detail report is created On Order Management Subject Area using Lookup - DENSE function, the detail report is not returning data.

 

Changes

Created an analysis to show the "Return Reason Name" using lookup functionality.

Lookup(
DENSE
"ORCL - SH".."SH"."CUSTOMER_LKP"."CUST_INCOME_LEVEL" ,
'No Income Defined',
"ORCL - SH".."SH"."CUSTOMERS"."CUST_ID")

In the physical query, it is observed that W_REASON_CODE is getting this value "_ERROR. However in the look up table, there is no record with value for '_ERROR_'.
