Adding a new key figure to Info Cube

Can I add a new key figure to an existing Info cube in which data is loaded?
Assume that In Info Cube we have the following.
Stu Id -- Characteristic
Maths , Physics , Chemistry -- Key figures
These are the info objects which are already available and transfer rules are already available for the same in the infosource.
Could any one let me know how to add one more new key figure (total ) , which is the sum of the three marks to the Info Cube and populate the data in to the same.
I have tried the following steps ,  but could not get the solution.
1). Create a new key figure info object (total).
2). Add the same to the communication and pull the same into transfer rules of the existing info source and activate the same.
3). Add the new key figure to the info cube.
4). Open transfer rules for the info cube and change the mode from NO updation to Addition for the particular key figure (total).
   When I perform the 4th step it is giving a red symbol beside the key figure in update rules and I'm not able to activate the same.
Any help on how to add key figures to update rules and transfer rules is highly appreciated and points would be assigned.

1.add new Keyfigure to Infocube.
2.Go to Update rules> go to update type of that Keyfigure>selct formula in update method>create new formula>here you can add up your 3 keyfigures-->OK.
activate update rules and InfoProvider.Check all are active or not..
by using Export generate datasouce ,you populate data(historical data)  to new keyfigure as well.Then you have to delete historical data requests.
or iyou can create formula in query designer as well as srinivas suggested.that would be better option.

  • Adding new key figure in Info structure

    Hi all,
    I am in a need to add a new key figure to our info structure here in my company.
    The way I understand it is, it would be best to create a NEW info structure and copy all existing key figure and characteristic and then insert my new key figure into this and rewrite the macro if required.
    So my question is
    1. How to determine which info structure is currently in use in my company? If i check in MC89 - the key figures match what is in Info structure S076. So is it safe to assume that we are using standard S&OP in my company? Is that a correct way to identify the currently used info structure?
    2. For our KMAT, when i open a planned order I see that there in another info structure (not S076) under configuration tab. So can we have diff info structure in use at a same time ?
    Please guide.

    Hi Nisha,
    1. First of all, How would I determine which info structure is being used at this time in my company?
    I need to know this so that when I am creating my own custom (S500 - S999) info structure, i can copy the existing KFs and Characteristics and add them to my info structure and then Add a specific key figure on top of that.
    Info structures are nothing but tables so in se16 you can check which are Info structures are having update values.
    Yes you can add the specific key figure on existing self defined info structure in MC22 after that you need to generate it.
    2. Can multiple info structure be in 'use' at the same time in any scenario? 
    For self defined info structure are application specific you can not have multiple info structure for same scenario. If you take the example of flexible planning with self defined info structure then you can transfer the demand from only one info structure.

  • Adding new key figures to DP planning area

    I am using APO DP.
    When adding new key figures to a planning area, is there any way of avoiding having to deinitialise and then re initialise the planning area?
    Thanks for any advice on this...

    First of, let us know which version of DP are you using.
    If you are using 7.0, all you need to do is right click on your planning area and select Change Keyfigure setting and you should be able to update the key figures there.
    The below is from SAP help for SAP APO 7.0, you should be able to add the key figure without deinitializing the planning area.
    Key Figure Settings
    Here you can change the properties of the key figures of a planning area, if the planning area has already been initialized. You can also add or delete key figures. However, you can only delete key figures that are no longer used in planning books, data views, macros, or demand forecasts. You can find out in which objects a specific key figure is used with the where-used list.

  • New key figures in multiprovider not visible in query designer

    Dear Experts,
    I added a cube and  keyfigures to the multiprovider definition.
    The multiprovider is activated successfully.
    The added keyfigures come only from this new cube.
    I  identified these new keyfigures to this new cube only.
    There is an existing query based on old version of the multiprovider without the new cube.
    When i relaunch query designer and re-open this query, i could not see the new keyfigures.
    When i create a new query, also its not showing the new keyfigures.
    Is there something not refreshed that I do not see these new key figures?
    Kindly advise. Thank you!
    Best regards

    Some time it happens that newly added key figures and characteristics are not visible immediately in Bex query designer. Just check for warnings if any encountered while activating else try editing and re activating your Multiprovider and also proper field assignment.
    Newly added Key Figures should be visible in both New and Old queries without any differentiation. Just log off and log in back after some time, there is a good possibility that this inconsistency would be resolved.

  • Key figure in COPA cube

    In COPA cube, there is Revenue, sales tax key figures. They are transferred from R/3 with the local currency and operating concern currency. In some of my billing document, the document currency is differnt from them. How to transfer the revenue, sales tax etc to BW also with the document currency.
    Many Thanks

    Thanks for you reply.
    Actually I solved the problem now. It is actually the Key figure that wasn't added to the Key figure list at the Perameter level. But it was in planning level.
    So I added it and it worked well

  • Significant of key field in Info cube table

    what is significant of key field in Info cube table?
    Best regards,

    hi ,
          key figures are very important in tables, when it is in cube it act as dimensions
    for the reporting purpose see this scenario
    the table has following fields
    student no
    student name
    student attendance
    student mark
    in this scenario when we want report according to student no its normal we would get, but when we want according to attendance,marks we dont get report according to attendance and mark, so we put all those fields in key fields.
    So we could say that Key fields are the dimensions and according to this we get reports
    thank yu

    should i delete data from dso before I add keyfigure?

    are going to get the values for the new key figure from source or is it going to calculate in BW side?
    If yes, then add that key figure in source DS, replicate the same BW system.
    Now add this key figure to your ODS and activate.
    create transformation for this. and activate.
    as this is key figure, you will get data for this in info set automatically.

  • New Key figures and Macro updates

    Is there a way to ensure that a change in the data view design  by adding additional key figures and changing the positions of the key figures/macros DOES NOT result in changes in Macros already present. This seems a little ridiculuous when i compare this to spreahseet functions, where only fixed references in the cells  are impacted by changes in rows and columns, adding columns and deleting rows etc, else the formulas/macros in excel adjust automatically. The Macros in my planning are adjusted and deactivated after inserting some more key figures and shuffling some up and down to organize the book for some new functionalities. Is there a report/technique to reset the macros so that they work as intended with proper references as defined.

    As Somnath says this is unfortunately the "normal" behaviour of the system. The macro workbench basically allocates a number to each key figure internally, so if new key figures are introduced, or even if you change the order of key figures in the data view, then this can affect the macro functionality.
    As long as the new key figure is introduced and placed at the end of the list in the data view then this will not normally affect the macro, it just needs re-activating.
    I find it frustrating when I have to re-order key figures in a data view then I have to check all macros are still working correctly and that the key figures used in the macro are the correct ones but unfortunately SAP will just say "as designed"!!
