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"!!

  • Diff between Calculated key figure and new formula 6extra functions why

    Hi Friends
                  In BEx query designer we have Restricted key figure & Calculated key figure. In the case of Ristricted Key figure And new selection the difference is Global and local.
    But if we come to Calculated Key figure and New Formula the difference is same global and local. But in New formula we have 6 extra function. My question is does is there any certain reason for this or SAP AG not be able to develop those functions
    Thganks & Regards

    Hi Surendra thank you for your reply.
    But i am not asking difference between calculated key figure and New formula.
    What i am asking is in the case of Restricted Key figure And new selection the difference is Global and local.
    But in Calculated Key figure and New Formula the difference is same global and local and in New formula we have 6 extra function. My question is does is there any certain reason for this.Why not SAP AG is not included the new formula functions in Calculated key figure.
    Thanks & Regards

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Addition of new key figure in ODS

    Dear all,
    In ODS, delta is loaded everyday through process chain. Now according to business requirement, we need to add one more key figure in it. I don't have to map it with any of the R/3 field. Only i have to create update routine to assign value in it using already existing key figure.
    Can i directly add new key figure in the ODS? Will it affect my data present in ODS as well as daily delta load process?
    If i can do this, can i assign exact 'key figure' value for the existing data also?
    Please guide me for the same. We are using BW 3.5.

    I am not sure that it is true that you need to delete data.  I am sure one can add a field to the ODS without deleting it.  The field will remain blank after creation, unless you fill it:
    1.  manually using a flat file for past data; mapping will work for subsequent data
    2.  Use a self reference if the value is already present in another key figure.
    The change may take a long time to activate depending on the following:
    1.  Size of the ODS
    2.  Existence of indexes.
    However,  as you are running a delta you need to be careful of the delta queue if you also intend to touch the datasource.

  • Some key figure are not update for movement type 101

    Dear All,
    I have done load for Inventory and now i am finding that for some material the with movement type 101 the key figures are not getting populated, for these materials the values in characteristics is getting populated fine.
    I have loaded the data according to stranded procedure in "How to Load...."
    I have checked the values of material in R3 and it is there.
    Example of the record::
    Material    Plant Movement type  Calender Day    quanity Base Unit
    10101      01       350                     01.02.2006     20             KG
    10101        01       101                     05.07.2006                      KG
    10101         01      101                      10.07.2006                      KG
    The Quantity is not appearing in second and third record.

    Please check whether you have set  ''Rule groups''  at transfermation level . There you can set the conditions like materials having movement type X can be updated to one Key Figure and material having movement type Y can be updated to another Key figure.
    Please check whether you have set this option at transfermation level.
    For example, may be in your case materials from different plants are updating to different key figure.

  • Cumulative key figure and non cumulative key figure

    Hi BW Expertz
    Could any one give me the clarification about cumulative and non cumulative key figures .Why we go for cumulative key figure and non cumulative key figure.If any docs could u just mail to the following [email protected]
    Thanx In advance
    Best regards
    sankar prasad

    Cumulative values are those key figures (KF) that are cumulated using all characteristics, thus also using time.
    Ex: Sales revenue, Quantity....
    Non-cumulative values are those key figures that are measured in relation to a period in time; they cannot be meaningfully cumulated over time. Non-cumulative values are summarized over time using so called exception aggregation.
    Ex: Number of employees, Inventory, Stock prices, Account balance,.....
    Non cumulatives are evaluated by non-cummulative values. Non-cummulative values are special key figures that are different from other key figures (cummulative values) in data transfers and saving as well as in aggregational behaviour. These are measured in relation to a period in time; that is to say, they cannot be meaningfully cumulated over time. Non-cumulative value are summaraized over-time using exception aggregation.
    Non-cumulative values such as 'number of employess' are cumulated using characteristics such as 'cost center'. It does not make any sense, however, to cumulate the number of employees using different periods. The result at the end of any particular period would be the sum total of number of employees for each posting during the period. This would of course be wrong.
    Instead, the aggregation of the KF can be defined as exception aggregation wherein an additional references characteristics is utilized to tell BW which value to use during the period, in this case, 0CALMONTH is used, in the above example, to indicate that only the last value of 0HEADCOUNT, updated by costcenter, is to be taken for any calender year and month.
    Cummulative vs Non-Cumulatives
    The purpose of non-cumulatives is to optimize the data transfer in BW, the data retention and the database access. The data transfer from OLTP to BW is minimized and only the meaningful data is saved and processed.
    It is recommended that you use non-cumulative values for areas that dont change frequently such as warehouse stock or number of employees.
    Non-cumulatives are modeled in BW using a non-cumulative value with the fields belonging to it for storing the non-cumulative or for inflows or outflows.
    Non-cumulative values are stored with special KF that differ in terms of data transfers and aggregational behaviour.
    Features of NON-Cumulative Values Transfering and Saving Data:
    - NC values are mapped uisng one KF for NC changes or two KF for inflows and outflows.
    -NC are transferred in an initialization run and the change runs that follow (initialization can also be omitted here)
    - A non-cumulative value always has a time-related exception aggegation.

  • How to append DATA_PACKAGE strucutre to include new key figures?

    Iu2019m a newbie to ABAP and need some help with a start routine in BW 3.5
    In the source DSO I only have  the u201CYTD amountu201D key figure. The destination DSO should also contain the key figures u201CCurrent month amountu201D (ZAMTMO) and u201CLast 12months amountu201D (ZAMTLTM). So in the transfer rule I want to have a start routine to do some calculations and add the 2 new key figures.
    I use an internal table LCYEARDATA do the calculations:
      DATA: LCYEARDATA type sorted table of /bic/aZHYP3_O00
            with unique key CALMONTH /BIC/ZHYP_ACC /BIC/ZHYP_ENTI
            with header line.
    *Get the YTD This Month.
            WITH KEY
          IF sy-subrc IS INITIAL.
    *Last 12 Months = (YTD Last Year - YTD Month Last Year) + YTD This Month
         modify DATA_PACKAGE.
    Since the DATA_PACKAGE have the same structure as the source DSO, and donu2019t contain the new key figures, I canu2019t add the new calculated key figures at the end of the loop. I get an error message saying that ZAMTMO and ZAMTLTM canu2019t be found.
    So the basic question is: How do I append the structure of the Data Package so it can include the new key figures?

    Hi Karsten,
      Similar post... have a look...
    Re: data package error
    DATA: varighed TYPE i.
    LOOP AT DATA_PACKAGE into wa_temp.
    varighed = 100.(<b>What this means....?? condition..?</b>)
    wa_temp-/bic/iotvarig = varighed.
    wa_temp-/BIC/IOTOBJFOR = 'TEST'.
    -->> <b>you have to write modify wa_temp</b>.
    modify wa_temp.
    LOOP AT wa_temp.
    Hope it Helps

  • Hi Gurus, To Add New key figure in BW 3.5 flow ODS- Infoset

    Hi Gurus ,
    I have rquerimennt to add a new  keyfigure in ODS and then into  Infoset .  The histrorical data for this keyfigure is not needed . Can you please let me know what the are changes needed to be done in Transfer structure -> cs->updaterules->ods->infoset.
    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.
