Comment not recognised as local member

Hi,

I attach a very simple report where I' trying to create a local member containing a comment. Although the local member recongnition is on, it's not recognised as such. However, if I in the same cell enter a formula, it's treated as a local member. It doesn't matter if I in the epmcomment formula refer to members in the report; it's still not recognised.

Anyone else came across this? (We're on v10 MS, SP13)

    Hi Cecilia,

    In EPMCOMMENTFULLCONTEXT define the parameter values(Member1, Member2,...). When you define the parameter values it will recognise it as a Local member.

    Hi Cecilia,

    I can make it work by using =EPMCommentFullContext(;A2) in a report with only one column (one period) or by using =EPMContextMemberFullContext(;A2;B1) in a report like yours with two different periods in columns.

    However, I do get #RFR when I first enter the formula, it disappears after I refresh the report.

    Hope this helps,

    Arnold

    Hi Arnold and Shalini,

    Thanks for your suggestions! They helped me to arrive at a working solution. But local members are tricky. When I have more time, I'll update this note with some findings that provided useful!
