BPC 10.0 SP20 : Carry-forward to the whole next year

Hi BPC experts,

I have a question about Carry forward (in a YTD consolidation model) :

When I run the concerned package, I have the copy of previous year last fiscal period (let's say in this case 2014.12) in the next first fiscal period (2015.01).

Is it possible to copy these data to all the periods of 2015 through a logic script ? If yes, what would be the logic script ?

In other words, when running the carry forward, I would like to have 2014.12 data from 2015.01, 2015.02... to 2015.12.

Thank you in advance,

    The Standard implementation allows the selection of more then one Destination period.

    The Carry Forward is implemented in a script logic file called COPY_OPENING.LGF.

    It Looks like:






    Select all base peroids in the year in Data Manager package.

    Kind regards,

      I read your link.

      I tried to use the carry forward for only 2015.12. It works but only if we choose one period at a time.

      However, by adding

      *FOR %TIM% = %TIME_SET%


      and changing


      the Carry forward is done for all the selected periods in the prompt.

      Thank you Vadim !

      Hi Vadim,

      The main idea is to have the same view than the transaction S_ALR_87012284 in ECC.

      The model is in YTD so shouldn't the BCF transfer the data to the whole next fiscal year periods ?
