Subtraction of two key figures normalized to result not working as expected

Hello SAP Community!
I am having problems with getting the right result from a subtraction of two KFs which are "normalized to results" which means the KFs really have values expressed as percentages. The substraction that should be performed is of two percentages (e.g.: 87.298% - 85.527% = 1.77%) but my report prints out the result as "number of units" instead (e.g.: 87.298% - 85.527% = 71,514.00 EA). The two normalized KFs actually "point" to two stock KFs, hence the "number of units".
In order to explain the problem I am facing please analyze below text:
1) Let's assume I have below data:
LOAD MONTH  PLANT    MATERIAL HORIZON MONTH     FORECAST UNITS
200805         PLANT-A  MAT-1            200805         510,235.00
200805         PLANT-B  MAT-1           200805          74,240.00
200805         PLANT-A  MAT-1           200806         438,721.00
200805         PLANT-B  MAT-1           200806          74,240.00
200805         PLANT-A  MAT-1           200807         356,981.00
200805         PLANT-B  MAT-1           200807          74,240.00
200806         PLANT-A  MAT-1           200805               0.00
200806         PLANT-B  MAT-1           200805               0.00
200806         PLANT-A  MAT-1           200806         510,235.00
200806         PLANT-B  MAT-1           200806          74,240.00
200806         PLANT-A  MAT-1           200807         438,721.00
200806         PLANT-B  MAT-1           200807          74,240.00
2) Then, assume I have a comparison report, restricted by load month for two months May and June 2008 (filter restricted by two month variables) with FORECAST units spread accross columns for whole horizon (two months also in this case).
Material  Plant                                 2008/06     2008/07
===================================================================
MAT1      PLANT-A  
                   Base Units (May 2008)        438,721.00  356,981.00
                   Comparison Units (June 2008) 510,235.00  438,721.00
          PLANT-B  
                   Base Units (May 2008)         74,240.00   74,240.00
                   Comparison Units (June 2008)  74,240.00   74,240.00
          TOTALS   Base Units                   512,961.00  431,221.00
                   Comparison Units             584,475.00  512,961.00
3) Now, let's suppose we want to know the proportions (%) of Base vs Comparison units, so
we normalize forecats to results an we get the below report:
Material  Plant                                 2008/06     2008/07
===================================================================
MAT1      PLANT-A  
                   Base Units (May 2008)        438,721.00  356,981.00
                   Base Units % (May 2008)      85.527%     85.527%
                   Comparison Units (June 2008) 510,235.00  438,721.00
                   Comparison Units %(Jun 2008) 87.298%     82.784%
          PLANT-B  
                   Base Units (May 2008)         74,240.00   74,240.00
                   Base Units % (May 2008)       14.473%     15.702%
                   Comparison Units (June 2008)  74,240.00   74,240.00
                   Comparison Units %(Jun 2008)  12.702%     17.216%
          TOTALS   Base Units                   512,961.00  431,221.00
                   Comparison Units             584,475.00  512,961.00
4) Finally, let's suppose we want to know the deltas (differences) of Base vs Comparison
units, for both number of units and %. The report now look as below:
Material  Plant                                 2008/06     2008/07
===================================================================
MAT1      PLANT-A  
                   Base Units (May 2008)        438,721.00  356,981.00
                   Base Units % (May 2008)      85.527%     85.527%
                   Comparison Units (June 2008) 510,235.00  438,721.00
                   Comparison Units %(Jun 2008) 87.298%     82.784%
                   Delta base vs. comp. units %  1.77%       2.74%
                   Delta base vs. comp. units    71,514.00  81,740.00
          PLANT-B  
                   Base Units (May 2008)         74,240.00   74,240.00
                   Base Units % (May 2008)       14.473%     15.702%
                   Comparison Units (June 2008)  74,240.00   74,240.00
                   Comparison Units %(Jun 2008)  12.702%     17.216%
                   Delta base vs. comp. units %  -1.77%      -2.74%
                   Delta base vs. comp. units         0.00        0.00
          TOTALS   Base Units                   512,961.00  431,221.00
                   Comparison Units             584,475.00  512,961.00
5) PROBLEM:
In my report, the "Delta base vs. comp. units %" is not working as expected and
calculates number of units just as "Delta base vs. comp. units" does instead of calculating the % difference.
So my report looks as follows:
Material  Plant                                 2008/06     2008/07
===================================================================
MAT1      PLANT-A  
                   Base Units (May 2008)        438,721.00  356,981.00
                   Base Units % (May 2008)      85.527%     85.527%
                   Comparison Units (June 2008) 510,235.00  438,721.00
                   Comparison Units %(Jun 2008) 87.298%     82.784%
                   Delta base vs. comp. units %  71,514.00  81,740.00 <<<WRONG!!
                   Delta base vs. comp. units    71,514.00  81,740.00
          PLANT-B  
                   Base Units (May 2008)         74,240.00   74,240.00
                   Base Units % (May 2008)       14.473%     15.702%
                   Comparison Units (June 2008)  74,240.00   74,240.00
                   Comparison Units %(Jun 2008)  12.702%     17.216%
                   Delta base vs. comp. units %       0.00        0.00
                   Delta base vs. comp. units         0.00        0.00
          TOTALS   Base Units                   512,961.00  431,221.00
                   Comparison Units             584,475.00  512,961.00
The formulas are:
a) Delta base vs. comp. units %
  Delta base vs. comp. units % = Comparison Units % - Base Units %
b) Delta base vs. comp. units
  Delta base vs. comp. units = Comparison Units - Base Units
The KFs
- Comparison Units %
- Base Units %
Are RESTRICTED key figures (restricted to Base and comparison month variables) which
are setup as:
1) Calculate Result As:  Summation of Rounded Values
2) Calculate Single Value as: Normalization of result
3) Calculate Along the Rows
The KFs
- Delta base vs. comp. units %
- Delta base vs. comp. units
are FORMULAS setup to:
1) Calculate Result As:  Nothing defined
2) Calculate Single Value as: Nothing defined
3) Calculate Along the Rows: user default direction (grayed out)
Thanks for the time taken to read in detail all of this. Long text but necessary to understand what the problem is.
Any help is highly appreciated.
Thank you.

Hi,
The subraction will be carried out before doing the normalization of your KF's. So, it is displaying "number of units". Create a calculated keyfigure and subtract the KF's and in the properties of this calculated keyfigure, change the enhancement as "After Aggregation".
I hope this will solve your issue.

S P.

  • Popup KEY LOV in Interactive Report not work as expected

    Hello,
    in an Interactive Report, i have added in a Region a Popup Key LOV (Displays description, returns key value). This LOV works ok in other Forms. But in the Report item (Session State variable) instead of returning the Return Value of the LOV, it returns the Displayed Value (inspected the Session). How can i make it work as expected ?
    TIA

    At the moment, i am ok with all the functionality of the IR, which is finished. What i want is to use some extra items on the upper part of the page that aid the user to restict in large part the IR query result. Some of these are ideal candidates for LOVs - I want LOV to diplay the Display values and after user selection to return the Return value, either to page item or to other variable. How can i achieve this? Any idea? So far the LOV returns the display value in the Item AND session corresponding variable.

  • Key Flexfield's Segment List not working as expected

    Greetings. I am having problems using the Segment List attribute of a key flexfield bean. I want to restrict the segments that a user can enter values for. I would like to do this by preferably setting the relevant segments read-only, or alternatively hiding them.
    According to the documentation it is possible to enter a segment list of the form:
    structure code1|segment1's name|segment2's name...
    If the Segment List is left empty, all segments will be shown, but if it is supplied, only the segments in the list will be shown.
    Also, it is possible to make a segment read-only by adding the code ($RO$) after a segment's name, like this:
    Structure code1|Segment1($RO$)|Segment2...
    I have tried both, and in both cases the code combination text box continues to show and edit all segments. All segment names are still listed under the text box, too, even when omitted from the Segment List. But when the user clicks the flashlight search button next to the text box to bring up the search/selection dialog, the segments match the Segment List, so the behaviour appears to be different for the text box and the dialog.
    If anyone could shed some light on this issue, it would be much appreciated! Thanks in advance :-)

    I guess this snippet from OAF Dev guide will make you believe my words :)
    =================================================================
    Key Flexfield Segment List
    You may fill in the Segment List property if you want to show some, but not all of the segments in your flexfield. If you leave this property empty, all segments are rendered. The syntax is similar to that described for descriptive flexfields, only you should use structure codes to replace context values. The format is:
    structure code1|segment1's name|segment2's name...||structure code2|segment4's name|segment5' name...
    Segments within a certain structure code are separated by a single pipe, "|", while data from a different structure codes is separated by a double pipe, "||". The example below lists segments for just one structure code:
    FWK Item Flexfield|Manufacturer|Product Family|Product
    Read-Only Segments
    You can add the read-only token ($RO$) after any of the segments in the list. For example, the ($RO$) designator below sets Segment1 in structure code 1 to be read-only:
    Structure code1|Segment1($RO$)|Segment2...

  • Search Results not working as expected with Site.URL Filter

    I have a page (SharePoint 2013 - Foundation) with a search Results web part. In that web part I have added a filter to limit the results to the specific site (and it's children). So my Query text is:
    {searchboxquery} Path:{Site.URL}*
    This works.. except for one thing. I'm guessing here but I think the "Site.URL" is returning the site that contains the search results page and not the site that actually started the search! 
    What I'm trying to do is mimic the default search behavior where a search only contains results from the current site down. So for example
    \sites\mySite\mySubSite
    If I'm on mySite and search, I should get everything from mySite + mySubSite. However if I am in the mySubSite when I search, I should only get results from mySubSite and NOT the parent mySite.
    Added info:
    the actual 'search center' is at the \sites\mysite level. Per MS documentation it states that {Site.URL} is the site from where the query was issued. To me that means that if I am on \mysite\mySubSite and initiate the search there, that it should only include
    results mySubSite which it is not doing
    Here is a screen shot.. I should not be getting any hits

    Hi,
    In SharePoint 2013, we could configure Result source to limit searched to certain content or to a subset of search results. This would be equal to a new search scope in SharePoint 2010.

  • Bex Query calc key figures in Crystal report not showing technical names.

    Hi,
    I have created calculated key figures in a BEx query for which the data comes from a SAP BW cube. I have assigned each of the calculated key figures a proper technical name which I expect to see when I bring it to crystal report. When I bring that query in Crystal as a data source the calculated key figures show a wier network id names instead of the technical names. I am having a problem in using those wierd technical name in my report and my formula's as I am not able to identify what is what.
    Please urgent help requested.
    Thanks
    Mahendra

    I dont have an account on such website. I will explain u the problem in detail.
    When I create a calculate key figure in SAP BEx query designer I assigned a technical name to it, a meaningful one. In my case one such example is Actual_revenue is the name that i have assigned and the description is Actual revenue. When I create a crystal report from it and in that report if i create a formula.
    I get this {ZIC_COPA_Z_SALES.[Measures]-[25V1KYL4VE92X0T4OMHVYM90V]}
    If u see it its a wier 25 digit name.
    Instead of this I want to see
    {ZIC_COPA_Z_SALES.[Measures]-[ACTUAL_REVENUE]} which is what I have given in the query. I am using the SAP BW MDX driver to connect to Bex query.

  • Read Key and Write Key not working as expected with paths on RT

    The configuration file VIs Read Key (Path) and Write Key (Path) don't seem to work as expected (at least not as I was expecting them to) on an RT target.
    When working on my WinXP PC with these two VIs, paths are translated to what looks like is supposed to be a device-independent format before being written to disk. The path C:\dir\file.txt becomes /C/dir/file.txt when writing and vice versa when reading. On my RT target, however, that same path is written to disk as C:\dir\file.txt, unchanged from the native format.
    The translaton of a native path to and from the device-independent format appears to be the responsibility of Specific Path to Common Path and Common Path to Specific Path. These both use the App.TargetOS property to determine the operating system. In the case structure for these two VIs, however, there is no case for PharLap or RTX. (My RT hardware is runnng PharLap; I don't know enough about RTX to comment.) This means that the results of String to Path or Path to String are used without translating between the device-independent format to the native path format.
    This isn't a problem if you create a configuration file on one machine and use it on that same machine. I noticed this only when tranferring a config file from my PC to the RT target, where the target would not open the file paths it loaded from the configuration file.
    This occurs on 7.1.1 and 8.0.  I don't have 8.20 to see if happens there, too.

    In LV 8.2, this was fixed.
    The problem is App.TargetOS returns "Pharlap" on RT systems, and "Pharlap" is handled by the default case ("invalid OS target") in LV 8.0.  In LV 8.2 the default case is "Windows 95/NT", however.  The reason you could write and read an .ini file on RT in LV 8.0 and earlier is because these two VIs (listed below) were both running the default case of "invalid OS target".
    vi.lib\Utility\config.llb\Common Path to Specific Path.vi
    vi.lib\Utility\config.llb\Specific Path to Common Path.vi
    As you saw, this fails when you perform one operation in Pharlap but the other in Windows.  You can fix this by modifying the two VIs listed above.  Just go to the case structure and make "Windows 95/NT" the default case.

    Three keys of my keyboard are not working, the cap one, the return key and the space bar, while the virtual keyboard shows to others keys highlighted in orange (^ and `); How to fix it? I writing now with a bluetooth keyboard.

    All new keyboards need Snow Leopard 10.6.8 and above for full functionality.
    Rather short-sighted of Apple perhaps, but that seems to be a trend these days.
    I'm afraid the only fix is to upgrade to SL. Personaly, I'd take it back and get a refund and seek an older keyboard or a third-party one elsewhere.

    Solved!
    Go to Solution.

    Hi just an update to the problem of the convenience key not working or working now and again. I had to do a couple of reboots this morning to update some apps and I noticed the key was not working after the reboot so I attached the charging cable to the phone and plugged into the wall socket thinking that will fix it again, but no it didnt. !!! I then remembered the first time I had this sorted I had plugged the charger in and switched the power on and then attached the phone, so I tried this method again and the key is working fine again!!!!. So what ever is happening when you do it in this sequence seems to reset the key. How did you get on with your phone with the Blackberry info?

  • How may I get my Ipad 2 to power on? I have tried the two button approach and it did not work.

    My Ipad 2 will not power on. I have tried the two button approach but it did not work. Until last evening, the Ipad was working very well. After it entered the sleep mode, it would not come back on. What can I do?

    The first thing to suspect is a completely drained battery. When this happens the iPad shuts down and will not turn on. Even if you charge the iPad it may take more than 30 minutes before it responds. Plug the iPad into the charger that came with it and plug the charger into a known good wall outlet. Do not charge the iPad by connecting it to a computer. Wait 30 minutes. Then reset the iPad. Press and hold both the Home button and the Sleep/Wake button continuously until the Apple logo appears. Then release the button and let the device restart. You will not lose data doing this. It's like a computer reboot.
    If the iPad restarts let it continue to charge until the battery is at 100%. If the iPad does not restart consider making an appointment at an Apple Store to have your device examined by a technician. Or contact Apple Support.
