Locking Issue experienced in Planning Books by different Users.

Hi Experts,

I could see a few discussions on similar issue but didnt see them getting closed. Hence opening this thread with the issue which I am facing currently.

2 of us are using different selections while trying to access the same planning book(data view).

Selection by User 01:

Show 'Product Brand' which meets the following conditions:

Sales Org- X

Product Brand- A, B

Channel- *

Business Unit- Z

Selection by USer 02:

Show 'Material' which meets the following conditions:

Sales Org - X

Product Category- K


Business Unit-Z

*Product Brand and Product Category characteristics are also attributes of the characteristic 'Material'

None of the CVCs pertaining to Selection made by User 01 are common to any of the CVCs pertaining to selections made by User02.

Still the second user is getting locked by user no. 1.

We have activated Live Cache lock with Key fig specific lock and do not lock read only key figures options checked.

One important thing is that this locking is not happening when 'Detailed Lock' option is used.

Any suggestions?

    Hi Kunal, to understand how the lock entries are created is not quite easy, but note 1130258 is a good referrence. The way I always suggest my customer to check is:

    1)Load selection 1 into change mode

    2)Push 'Goto' -> 'Lock Entries' from the menu, and memo what you see in the popup screen.

    3)Do the same for selection 2.

    4)Compare the lock entries of selection 1 and selection 2.

    ** As long as there are same lock entry of the two selctions, the selections will lock each other.

    'Detailed Lock' is less restrictive than the other locks.

    You can refer to online help for some more detailed information.

    But for general users, above 4 steps would be enough.
