Virtual Key Figure's in cube

Hi Friends,

As per my knowledge, Virtual Key Figure is a key figure without data being in cube, but while excuting the report that key figure gets filled with data using enhancement RSR00002.

But my doubt is: what is the scenario that we can use virtual key figures in cube. I need this scenario pls tell

Regards.,

Balaji K. Reddy

    Hi Balaji,

    We adopted this in a scenario where the cube had few KPI's and the company code currency was euros. The same report was used by various departments and one team in the Company Head quarters wanted to see the amount in Japanese YEN and the American zonal office wanted to see in USD. The amount was translated using Virtual KF's at report level to see in Japanese YEn and USD at report level.

    Cheers

    Raja

    In the old days we used to use VKFs to report an master data attributes (e.g. unit price in material master) multiplied by cube entries

    But now that requirement has gone due to the use of formula variables

    Which is good because VKFs were kicked in for all queries of the cube (even if you didn't use them the code still ran) - unless you spcified a where clause ont he query name in the cmod code (this then makes new queries using the VKFs a bit of a pain)

    To be quite honest I haven't used them since about 2001 - and I try (and succeed) in avoiding them at all costs (as it proves I have messed up the data model)
