BPC Conversion File - Same External ID for different Dimensions


Hello Experts,

I hope you can help me.

We are running BPC NW V10.0 SP13

I have a Conversion File for External to Internal Mapping on the DATASRC Dimension.

See Image 01

I would now like to use the same 'External ID' to identify the mapping rules for two Dimensions, DATASRC and CATEGORY Member ID

See Image 02

The rules that determine how the External ID is mapped are subjective rather than derived from patterns present in ID. This means I cannot use any conditional logic to determine the mapping rules. For example, I cannot assume that all IDs that start with 99Z19 will need to be mapped the same way.

So the CATGORY Member ID needs to be hard-coded somehow.

Although it is simple enough to copy the entire worksheet and hold the mapping for each Dimension as separate w/sheets, this duplicates the amount of ongoing maintenance and turns 80 rules into 160 (a number which will rise!)

Is there a way of using javascript in the Formula column to identify the Internal Member ID for the CATEGORY Dimension.

If so, how would the Transformation File reference this?

Any help would be much appreciated
