Default Formula Package Run Nullifies Existing Data Records

Hello All,

Could you please provide some insights on the below issue.

BPC Version - 10.1
BPC Cons Model - Management IFRS


Whenever the Def. Formula package is manually executed after a data copy or posting, the already posted values gets nullified due to the new record that comes in with a positive value brought as a part of def.formula package run.

Why is data flowing when Def. Formula package is executed?
How to avoid the existing records getting nullified?


1. There is a record with under Category ACTUAL posted for 2019.P02

2. The user copies this record using the copy function. From ACTUAL To ACTUAL-BUD2019 for Period 2019.P02

3. At this moment, when I check the t-code listcube at the backend, I am able to see that the values for both ACTUAL and ACT-BUD2019 for Period 2019.P02 have been posted without any issues.

4. Now, when I execute a Default Formula package, I have two new records (refer highlighted in Orange in the screenshot above) with +ve value on the measure. This nullifies the total.

The Default Formula package calls the ALL_CALC.LGF script that has code for both currency conversion and Eliminations.

    "But, one question is that, we do have a nightly load that pulls ACTUAL data into the Cons. models in BPC. As a part of the chain, the Default Formula package also gets executed on a daily basis overnight." - please provide details how it's triggered?

    Do you use package link or... during overnight data load?

    "During the FX conversion, as per the log the currency conversion step submits records.
    Is this not normal?" - for sure it's normal!

    You have to analyze your currency conversion rule to understand the logic of record generation!
