Master Data Save Through BPS - BI and BPS Related

Hi,

I have 2 questions regarding BI and BPS working together.

1.Does all infoobject used in BPS layout have to be master data enabled to avoid BPS created master data? By this I mean, if an infoobject doesn't have 'with master data' check box enabled, and has only'with text' enabled, the new masters created in BPS gets saved to the infoobject? Is this how it is expected to behave?Is there a work around to avoid creating master data from BPS?

2.We have a multiprovider for actuals and budget. Budget comes from BPS which has only cal quarter. But the budget and actuals cube have year and quarter. In the actuals we are deriving quarter and year from trnasaction date in update rule. But for budget, we have only quarter being entered by user. Is there a way to derive the year and store in budget infocube so that reports derived out of the multiprovider can show year correctly for both budget and actuals?

Thanks

Suja

    Hi,

    1. BPS cannot create master data at all and that setting is irrelevant fo bps. Users can only forecast on existing master data.

    2. You should derive the other fiscal characteristics in a derivation exit. There should be a HowTo paper on this which I am not able to find online. Post an email if you still need it. Should be around at work!!

    Regards,

      This is wrong. If your infoobject doesnt have master data, then values inputted in layouts will be written into the infoobject.

      yes

      >Is this how it is expected to behave?

      I think, yes

      >Is there a work around to avoid creating master data from BPS?

      The only way, i suppose, to create infoobject with master data
