On Oracle Financial Services Profitability Management (OFSPM) 5.2.2, when attempting to use a Data Filter of the type "Another Data Element', incorrect SQL is generated in the allocation. If the Data Filter is used as part of the Lookup Table Driver definition, the following error occurs:

Module Logging OFS errors: (203105) Oracle drv_oci error: OCI Function: [60] - odescr() SQL
Function: [0] - SQL function not found! Oracle Error: ORA- 00936:
missing expression Driver Function:
drv_oci::SetColInfoFromResults() SQL Statement:
select count(a.identity_code), SUM(NVL(TRANSFER_RATE, 0)),
from RI_ACCT a
where (((a.TRANSFER_RATE_SRC_FLAG = 0))
and a.as_of_date='08/ 31/ 2010'
group by a.identity_code_chg

If used as Data Filter for Source, the allocation will not even complete and the following error is thrown if run command line:

$ 1 Allocation Task1 19991231 201213COKI AsOfDate=12/31/1999 <

Allocation ID failed to convert.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Create an allocation with an 'Another Data Element' type data filter
2. Run the allocation
