Characteristic Derivation for Time - How far in the Future?

BI Planning works fine for me in generate weeks, month, years, ... from calendar days - BUT ONLY UNTIL 2010. Is there any setting I could use to extend the time horizon for the future? Many thanks.

    Hi Juraj,

    the time interval for the F4 help can be defined in transaction rsrhierarchyvirt. This setting is also used in BI Planning (e.g. in forecast functions and combination proposal, i.e. the query setting 'Result Access Mode').

    Regards,

    Gregor

    Try transferrign the global setting one more time and test.

    Source system - rigth click - transfer global settings.

    BPS will and BW function module read data from this when deriving the time chars.

    Hi,

    I'm not familiar with BPS itself but probably if you change the calendars in SAP R/3 using SCA6_U transaction it will work as well. (could it be there is some dependency on a factory calendar?)

    These calendars are typically defined until 2010. (so all SAP systems should watch this date since they need to update their factory calendars).

    regards

      Hi,

      I would first find out where the link is made to the calendar in your datamodel. If you find it, you can try assigning a general one. This is however outside my area of expertise (BW).

      -> don't change it in SAP R/3 because you need it in BI IP, since it is important for certain logistical transactions.
