CO-PA Summarization Levels

Hi,

for a report with many characteristics I created 4 summarization levels in such a way that

Summarization Level 2 includes all characteristics of the Summarization Level 1 + some more

Summarization Level 3 includes all characteristics of the Summarization Level 2 + some more

Summarization Level 4 includes all characteristics of the Summarization Level 3 + some more

In the report options, in Presummarized data section, I selected "Read upon each navigation step".

Now when I execute the report, data is first read from the Summarization Level 1. During drill down data is read from further summarization levels depending on which characteristic is used for the drill down.

There is one thing that I don't understand:

None of these summarization levels is used by the system if it does not contain the characteristic "Product".

As Product is not used for the initial selection of the report I initially put it on Summarization Level 3. But the system did not want to use Summarization Levels 1 and 2 then. When I added the Product to the Levels 1 and 2, everything is working fine. However this is not what I need because Product is not displayed on the first screen of the report.

Do you know why the characteristic "Product" is required in each summarization level?

I will appreciate your help very much!

With best regards,

Marcin

    HI Marcin Kaiser,

    I am not exactly sure of the right answer, but i have few questions

    1) Are you using the Report Report Interface?

    2) Is Product a drill down Characteristic in your report.

    Best Regards

    Surya

      Hi Surya,

      My report is calling all summarization levels.

      At the start the summariyation level 1 is called. It is most aggregated so it is little time needed to start the report. It contains only the most frequently used characteristics.

      During drilldown other summarization levels can be called (this is achieved thru the option "Read upon each navigation step"). It depends on which characteristic is used for drilldown: if the characteristic used for drilldown is not included in the currently used summarization level, the next least aggregated summarization level which includes this characteristic is called.

      The most frequently used characteristics are included in the most aggregated summarization level, the least frequently used characteristics are included in the least aggregated summarization level, which contains all characteristics used in the report.

      With best regards,

      Marcin
