Wants to Create Input Form

Hi BPC Expert's ,

I am pretty much new in BPC and on learning phase of BPC module. Basically i am SAP FI Consultant. I have been place on BPC module and from our client we have received creation of input form requirement. There are certain condition for creation of this input form.

1. As per them BPC Categories "Account" & "Product" should be fixed to the item they have listed with us.They should not be created dynamic by after the "Refresh" option press. These both the options they want to fix on EPM Pen.

2. in EPM Context they want only "Organisation" dimension. So that user can change members of that.

3. Also they have given default Audit trail member also.

Now i am struggling with first option. For both the Accoount & product dimension they have given list of members. List is around 850 members. i have selected all the members in epm pen under each dimension with relationship "Member Only"and selected radio button Dynamic selection. But when i refresh this form i am getting around 20000 members list. Instead of 850 members list.

Can someone help me is there any settings to keep fix members.

Also sometime my EPM Pen gets disable so i cannot go and change dimension members. I know how to unlock epm context bar but dont know about settings of EPM Pen.

Please advise.

    Hi Parag,

    1. As Raju said create a property in account dimension and fill that " Y " for the required accounts which are need to display in report. Do the same for the Product dimension also. while creating the report use dynamic filter by using the property it will fetch the accounts products which are enabled in the Property as "Y".

    (For example later when they want different set of accounts just enable those accounts as "Y" under property column.)

    2. If you want organization dimension only in the context go to options --> Context lock options -->hide and lock the dimension which are not required to display in the context.

    Hope this will help,

    You can maintain a property under Account dimension to differentiate the list of accounts which are suppose to be shown in the input form and create your input form based on this property.

    If your EPM pane is disappears then just click on Show Pane & Context under EPM tab to make it enable.
