Defining calculated columns with prompt for values

Hi forum experts,

I am new to designing universes through IDT and need some help. I am trying to reconstruct the calculated key figures and restricted key figures that are part of the BEx query in an universe in IDT.

I was able to define the calculated columns in the business layer of the IDT but I am facing issues in defining calculated columns with restriction based on a prompt.

So here is what I did - I first defined the parameter prompts for Fiscal year (single value) and Posting period (multiple values)

After that I defined a new calculated column and made the prompt part of the selection statement and now I am facing the error that the expression is invalid. The error occurs only when the Posting Period prompt allows multiple values (as explained in the screenshot above).

Could you let me know how to fix this error and whether this is the right way to define a calculated column with restrictions through a prompt.

    Not sure what was wrong the first time with the local project, I retrieved the universe and used the same SQL expression with the 'IN' operator and it works fine now.
