“Unspecified error invoking method or accessing property “onChangeDocID” when create and running webi report.

Hi All,

I just want to share my experience which may help to many BI folks to resolve their issues when create or running webi Reports. Due to unsupport java we may can see below error.

“Unspecified error invoking method or accessing property “onChangeDocID”

webi error.png

Replication steps: Logged on and selected the Webi  Icon, select Web Intelligence Document, select Universe, Looked at universe list to make sure I didn’t see any restricted universes.  Selected universe and created a new Webi report.  When I ran the report, may get above error, however, as you can see report data did return but when select close of X out of the error, report will disappears.

Cause: Unsupported java Version


Update java version later to Java 1.0.7_51

Reference Note: Same issue mentioned in the below SAP note: 1933283 – Error: “Unspecified error invoking method or accessing property “onChangeDocID” ” when refreshing a new WebI report after choosing query elements.

Issue will be no longer occurred after Java version 7 update 45 .

But in you case you are in Java Update 51. Hence i would request you to clear the Java cache and try the same flow.

To clear java cache:

Navigate to control panel –> Java –> On general tab –> Temporary file settings –> Delete files –> ok.

Restart browsers and retest.

Hope this helps.

      Hi Venkat,

      this is very use full, I am facing the same Issue & able to resolve by your steps.

      for me it took some time to find the "JAVA control panel ".

      the below is the simple path.

      Alternate method of launching Java Control Panel

      • Click Windows Start button.
      • In the Start Search box, type:
        Windows 32-bit OS: c:\Program Files\Java\jre7\bin\javacpl.exe
        Windows 64-bit OS: c:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre7\bin\javacpl.exe
