How to assign the dimension.property value to a existing record

Hi All,

I think this is very basic.

This is what I need to do

  • Read a existing record based on some parameters like datasource, version,time.period.
  • Change the values of few dimension by reading a different dimension.property value.
  • This is similar to the repost characteristics function in IP or BPS.
  • Just modify the 3-4 dimensions and assign the value from the somedimension.property value.

For example I need to select records based on the data source, time period and entity and then change few dimension values like assign the assign the dimension from a different dimension property. For example FS line item assign it from a somedimension.FS_LINE property.

* I don't want to create a new record.

* Read a existing record and modify the values of GL Account and Billing Type.

The code should be for one dimension

WHEN FS_LINEITEM

REC(EXPRESSION=%VALUE%FLD(SOME_DIMENSION.FS_LINEITEM)).

*ENDWHEN

Is this correct code ? I need to do the WHEN/ENDWHEN for all the 3 dimension values I need to change right ?

The FLD(DIM.PROPRTY) instruction in *REC is supported only in MS and not in BPC NW version. I am using EPM 10.How to assign the dimension.property value in BPC NW EPM 10 version.

Sorry I know it is too basic. Thanks in advance for all your help.

    Hi Senthil,

    "I don't want to create a new record." - new record WILL be created!!! You COPY data! After copy you can clear original record...

    If you want to copy data to some dimension member that is defined in the property of some current dimension member then use:

    *REC(EXPRESSION=%VALUE%, FSLINE=SOME_DIMENSION.FS_LINEITEM)

    Hope it's clear!
