Problem create OWNER property in C_GROUP

Hi All,

I've an issue while trying to create a new property called OWNER in the C_GROUP dimension.

Please refer to the screen-captures for the error.

I've also tried to create OWNER2 just to be sure the OWNER is not a reserved property name that are not allowed.

I'm using BPC 10 Microsoft version.

Please advise.

Thank you.

    OWNER is a reserved property, the OWNER property is used by the work status and BPF. However you should be able to add it to your dimension.

    Could you describe the steps you have taken? I am assuming you went into the dimension properties and added the OWNER property first. Did you then open the member sheet (maintain dimension members) before processing the dimension?

    Hi Derek,

    as Arnold wrote Owner is a reserved property used by work status and bpf, this means that only one dimension could contain a owner property.

    You can find the dimension that contains the Owner property in admin console->application->work status settings the dim has Owner specified in "work status".

    So if you want to change the dimension owner, you must change this property first, delete the property in the old dimension and add the owner property in the new dimension and after full process all dims again

    But you will loose all previos work status lock previous used.

    Like Arnold a question, before to start, are you using this property for another purpose then work status and bpf? If so better to stop and explain what do you want.
