DLG_VARIABLE error while running BEx report in SAP Portal

While running BEx BE report in SAP portal environment I came across below error:

          Error in rendering root for dialog “DLG_VARIABLE”

The report runs fine while running it outside the portal in BEx Analyzer, Analysis for MS Office or via t-code RSRT. There are below SAP Notes available that fix this issue. However these SAP Notes are only relevant for SAP BW 7.5 SP06 version.

2465736 - Error: Error in rendering root for dialog “DLG_VARIABLE”
2357717 - Cannot convert field VALUE_NUMBER of type DECF34 to double

As in my case BW version was 7.4 so the Notes are not applicable. Root cause within one of BEx variables type of user exit used in the query which populated wrong value.
