IDES No Data - Interactive Planning

Hi, please help this dummy so he can help others! I am using IDES and noticed there is no data in the Planning Books / Data Views?

Can someone tell me why or if there is data that needs to be loaded from the InfoCube to the Planning Area. I'm testing functionality & scenarios of Demand Planning both configuration and analysis in Interactive Demand Planning.

I'd like to use data if it is available, so if I could check and use it that would be great.

Eventually I would like to get instructions on loading the InfoCube and Planning Area. I would need very detailed instructions soup to nuts even the format of a flat file.

    Sorry to hear that Kevin :-)

    For a quick start what you can do is make all the rows (key figs) = input / output. You do this by clicking on design and then right click on the row in the next screen. somewhere you will find the option- input/output.


    Now come back to interactive planning. you will see all rows white

    Now you can directly type in some numbers. e.g. in History if you have one to generate e.g. a statistical forecast. For doing that there is more config. Define a forecast profile, assign key figures to planning area etc.

    Google Demand Planning Best Practice Configuration guide. Some older ones are free.It will explain how to load data to an infocube with a file and then to planning area. you will realize there are several things you need to do test something. Config is easy couple of hours work.

    I hope this gets you started. May you need more answers, feel free to ask. You can do some basic search here on this forum where many of your questions would have been already answered.

    • Hello Kevin,

      Looking at the screenshot, what it looks to me is that there is a inconsistency after changing the TB profile for future and past in the "Dataview" tab of your planning book design change ( in the tranaction code /SAPAPO/SDP8B ).

      Could you try to do the consistency check and initialize the planning area again to see if the problem still persists ?

      • Consistency check program :-/SAPAPO/TS_LCM_CONS_CHECK ( Run this with Repair, Check LiveCache Anchor option )

      • Planning area initialization :-/SAPAPO/TS_PAREA_INITIALIZE

      Hope this helps.
