BPC Data load - pre aggregation automatically?

Hey Folks,

my question is about transactional data loading (from BW infoprovider, using BPC 10.1 classic) and actual - plan mapping of accounts.

Please regard following case:

Source (Datarecords):

AC1 SG1 PC1 1

AC2 SG1 PC2 1

AC3 SG1 PC2 1


External Internal




In our case we load with overwrite (match key) and it seems to be the case that BPC overwrites already while loading the matching records instead of merging them.

After loading it appears like that:


AC1 SG1 PC1 1

AC1 SG1 PC2 1

But we would like to have it like:


AC1 SG1 PC1 1

AC1 SG1 PC2 2

Is there a way to preaggregate so that we get the desired effect of a merge?

    Hi Maximilian,

    This is the standard behaviour of bpc will only aggregate the data which has all the members of the full cross section same. Even one different member in the record in cross section will be treated as different! Nothing can be changed in this as far as I know......

    If you need aggregation based on profit center then you can write an end routine for the same and run it in transformation file while loading the data.

    First of all the idea to append data on load looks not perfect in general 😊 If for some reason you have to reload data then... 😔

    Can you explain the business logic of append load? You don't have some required dimension to load data separately or...?

    • Hello Vadim,

      I hope I get your question right, but the Business logic is that they want to just map a few (actual) accounts (AC2, AC3) into one (planning) account (AC1).

      We never experienced any Trouble with that because there were not completely similar (so the profitcenter was different or something else).

      Here for the first time the data records become completely similar AC2 and AC3 become AC1 and they have the same SEGMENT and PROFITCENTER. So the behaviour of BPC is here to overwrite the value instead of append.

      We could load AC3 separately of course - but that is not the way he wants. That's why i was asking if there is any pre-aggregation option within bpc in the load process on the SOURCE (not target). Or do we have to do this in the transformations of the layers below in the SAP BW?

      Best regards
