Mantain Master Data & refresh layout possible in BPS?


I'm developing an application with which user can mantain master data for a given characteristic & refresh the layout to reflect updated master data records.

Is this doable?

I've created an exit function that calls function UPC_BW_MASTER_DATA_MAINTAIN by passing necessary information.

after calling this function, & edit the master record, master data is getting updated along with cube contents but the layout is not getting refreshed.

If i re-enter the layout, i could see updated transaction data with new master data.

What do i do to refresh the layout with updated master data w/o having to re-enter the layout.

I've gone through couple of related posts in this forum but of no luck.

Appreciate your help.

    I've found a similar problem.

    The "solution" that we applied was:

    We show a message to the user that tells him that he has to refresh the web page in order to see the changes (F5). I put a note to SAP telling the problem, and they told me that it works in this ways, I suppose that when you refresh the layout using the refresh or the check button given by BPS standar, data that comes directly from the master data and not from the transactional infocube is not accessed.

    • Hello,

      BPS buffers read master data values and attributes. Depending on the used frontend also manual planning buffers master data values and attributes.

      BPS reads master data values 'most recent':

      - M version if it exists

      - A version if no M version exits.

      You can use function modules:

      -UPC_CHA_VALUES_GET read master data values via selection


      -UPC_CHA_VALUES_UPDATE save master data values in BW (no

      change run)

      -UPC_CHA_VALUES_SET update changed master data in BPS


      In a Web Interface (HTML not Excel OWC) manual planning has no context, i.e. after a roundtrip manual planning will read the master data values from the BPS master data buffer. In the other frontend manual planning has a context, i.e. will take already read master data not from master data buffer but from its own buffer.

      Best regards,
