Parameters for package link

Hi,

I have a package link which contains two packages. Both need TIME as the only input, yet I still have to set it for each individually.

Is there a way in a package link to set a dimension member only once?

Thanks,
Arnold

    If you are talking about CPMB\ALLOCATION then you are talking about DM packages running script logic (CPMB\ALLOCATION = CPMB\DEFAULT_FORMULAS etc...)

    Then you can combine scripts using *INCLUDE into single script and not use package link at all!

    P.S. Please attach scripts!

    Not possible. What packages are you using?

    I use the CPMB\ALLOCATION packages but with customer specifics scripts being run. Some users need to run both (those use a package link) while other users only need to run one of the two. So I thought it would be easiest to have two packages for the users that only need one and a package link for users that need both.

    I have three types of users, group A needs to run package 1, group B needs to run package 2 and group C needs to run both packages. So I thought it would be easier to create a package link for group C rather than another script and another package.

    Seems I was wrong.

    • Yes, you are wrong...

      You have 2 scripts: 1 and 2

      group A will execute DM1 with script 1

      group B will execute DM2 with script 2

      group C will execute DM3 with script 3 - containing:

      *INCLUDE SCRIPT1

      *INCLUDE SCRIPT2

      DM3 will ask parameters only once :)
