Generic data source with float field possible?

when creating an generic data source using a view with a float field I get error R8359 (extract structure: You tried to generate an extract structure with the template structure .... This operation failed, because the template structure quantity fields or currency fields, for example, field ... refer to a different table.).
I changed the data element from ATFLV to e.g. FLOAT but it did not help.
SAP hint 335342 deals with this issue, but I just want to use the float number without the unit.
Is this possible or do I need to write a function module?
Best regards
you could try to add the unit table and field to your view. When saving the datasource in RSO2, you can choose to hide these fields if you don't want them extracted into BW.
