distribute with reference More than 8 char

Hi Experts,

I have a requirement to distribute the reference data upto 12 characteristics. But the standard function allows only 8 characteristics. How i do this? what are my options?

Is FOX coding is the only option i have ??

Thanks,

Rohith.

    Hi Rohith,

    I have had the same issue in the past. I solved it by creating 2 planning levels and 2 separate distributions and doing a multi step distribuiton.

    Michael,

    But when you do that, in your first distribution say if you distribute 100,000 to 6 characteristics.

    Next in ur second step if you distribute these 100000 to the rest of the 6 characteristics, isn't the function adds the records for FIRST 6 characteristics with "unassigned - # " ???

    We want all the distribution done evenly so that in reporting we dont see the second 6 characteristics with # signs.

    Please let me know, how it worked for you ?

    Thanks for the reply..

    Rohith.

      Hi Rohith,

      In you r situation, FOX code is the best option. It will ensure that you have all the characters in the same data string.

    We decided to restrict the distribution to 8 char only and we are fine with the function...

    I was trying to avoid writing fox code for this 😊

    Thanks for ur help guyz..
