    Mainly at two points you have to be very careful, as suggested in online document:

    1) In a MultiProvider, every characteristic in each of the InfoProviders involved must correspond to exactly one characteristic or navigation attribute (wherever these are available).

    2) Exactly one of the InfoProviders provides the key figure. However, there are cases where it is better to select from more than one InfoProvider

    • Hi,

      About p.2 - If infoproviders in the multiproviders contain the same key figures for the same time periods (redundant storage), then you have to choose just one IP's KF, otherwise KFs will be multiplied. If IPs are the same but contain data for different time period (for example, logical partition - each IP has data for different years), then you have to include KFs from EACH infoprovider.

      Best regards,
