    Hi Southie,

    You are right..you can use all the dates for analysis of the data for a date range..

    But in general ..when we mention the driving date ..its the way you want to look at the data..

    For EG: A document posted in FI has a lot of dates ..

    The user might want to look at reports by the Posting date Fiscal year Period ..when he is analysing expenses..

    Or when he wants to analyse Approvals..his driving date is Approval date..

    Normally the driving date is mapped to all other time characteristics in the cube..

    Hope it helps..

    Ashish..

      It's enough to click YES on the pop-up that appears after you assign a char to a time reference "Do you want to transfer this mapping to every KF ?" or something similar...

      otherwise you can always do it manually row by row (but with no doubt is more confortable the first option !!

      Bye,
