SAP IBP - Not able to add new attribute to planning area

I added a new attribute to a Master Data type(MDT) and activated it.

This MDT is already part of the planning area (PA).

But I am not able to add this attribute to the PA. The checkbox in front of the attribute remains greyed out.

    Hi Ramesh,

    As per IBP 1702 release restrictions: https://launchpad.support.sap.com/#/notes/2403134

    "Decimal attributes cannot be assigned to a planning area. However, you can use decimal attributes as attributes as key figures."

    Please check if that's the case for you.

    Best regards,

    Ivan

    Hi Ramesh,
    This can happen if you have used same atribute name in other master data type.
    Example: MDT - PRODUCT has PRDID
    Compound MDT - LOCATIONPRODUCT has PRDID
    when you add PRODUCT first time to PA, it will show check box to select PRDID.
    Next time when you add LOCATIONPRODUCT, it will not allow you to select PRDID as it is already selected in
    PRODUCT MDT.
    Check if this is the case.
