How to reduce the top Node Value by several accounts - wihout having them displayed in EPM?

Hey Folks,

following Situation we have a very Long ACCOUNT hierarchy and in Terms of providing a better Performance I just put the top nodes which show the total value of the accounts in the Report.

Structure is like this:

1. NodeA (5000€)
1.1. ACCOUNTA (1000€)
1.2. ACCOUNTB (1000€)
1.3. NodeB (3000€)
1.3.1 ACCOUNTC (2000€)
1.3.2 ACCOUNTD (1000€)

2.NodeC(3000€)
2.1. ...... and so on

So the requirement is here to show only the top nodes of the hierarchy.

1.NodeA(5000€)
2.NodeC(3000€)

BUT - it si requested to leave a few accounts out of the total Value. So in this example we could say ACCOUNTD should be left out:

1. NodeA (4000€)
1.1. ACCOUNTA (1000€)
1.2. ACCOUNTB (1000€)
1.3. NodeB (2000€)
1.3.1 ACCOUNTC (2000€)

2.NodeC(3000€)
2.1. ...... and so on

But in the Report we don't show the Accounts (that's why we can't exclude it with a filter by property or so) and that's why we can't use the calculate parents in hierarchies Feature from EPM Report Editor)

We just have

1.NodeA(5000€) --> and want to exclude the value of ACCOUNTD here --> so it should just Display 4000€
2.NodeC(3000€)

Does somebody has an idea how to realize that in a performant way? Because i realized it already via Excel formulas and EPM local members but this killed the performance of the Report....


Thanks in advance!
regards from Germany!

You can't exclude some child value from node without calculating the "node" by Excel formula!

The only other way - to create extra hierarchy with different node name and different list of children...

P.S. You can't affect node aggregation in the report! No way!

Hi Maximilian, I agree with Vadim. You need to create an alternate hierarchy with the members you want to rollup to NodeA which would be called NodeA_ALT in the secondary (alternate) hierarchy.

You could also use local members as you said. What is the performance with/without local members?
