SAP IBP - Get List of atributes in VBA


I'm running SAP IBP. I was wondering is there is a way, using VBA, to recieve a list of the values of attributes shown in a planning view.

Let say I have a planning view that is filtered by certain criteria, and the results will show Product Number and the projected stock of each one as a key figure. I would like to obtain an array of the product numbers shown in the results using VBA.

Is that possible with the IBP API (In fact i dont know if that even exists)? or do i have to do a basic VBA that will do it after the results are shown in the planning view?

Thank you.

    You can use OData service to extract MDT records. However, this option is not recommended for mass data extraction!!

    There is also an OData service available to extract attributes and filters in a planning view which you can then further use as filters to extract data from above API. However, it is mentioned that this service (planning view template attributes/filters) is restricted for non-productive use. I would suggest to reach out to SAP to get a clarity on the 2nd API.

    Hi Luis,

    There is no such standard API available to fulfill your exact request. Sure, developing custom VBA code on your own is a possibility in case you implement it and enable its support.
