Concatenate characters to characteristic value enetered


We need to concatenate some characters with the Cost Center data entered by users and populate the resultant data in another characteristic, for the same transaction record - this needs to be done before data is written to the cube.

Some topics in the forum suggested using exit functions for similar problems. But how do we pass cost center (or for that matter any characteristic value)from the buffer to the function and pass the concatenated (or massaged) data back to the same record in the buffer.

If not exit, what are the other options?

Looking forward to advice and suggestions.

Thanks in advance

    Hi Krishna,

    Welcome to SDN.

    If i understand correctly, you can write routine in update rules for new characteristic.

    Are you getting cost center as well in the transactional data...? How you are maitaining master data for this new characteristic...??(Compounding..?)

    Hope it Helps
