Allocations engine using properties

Hi Friends,

Env -10.1/bpc allocation engine script.

We are trying to implement costcenter allocations in BPC.

I had a look at this document on allocations - page 16.

http://wpc.0b0c.edgecastcdn.net/000B0C/Presentations/FIN2016_Dixon_Cairncross_Handsonlabsapbusinessplanning.pdf

Dimensions in my model - Account, Company, SourceCC, DestinationCC, Time, Category

When we write the allocation logic, we did not map the company dimension, so the engine writes the allocated data to source company code.(as the data comes in)

The allocations should be written to the companycode which a property of DestinationCC.

Is there a way that we could use a property of a dimension in WHERE>

example.

*DIM COMPANY WHAT= ; WHERE= (DESTINATIONCC->COMPANY PROPERTY ); USING=<<<; TOTAL=<<<

thanks for your time.

Ed.

    Property in allocation can be used only to define list of members having some fixed property.

    You can perform allocation to the same company using RUNALLOCATION and then move the results to the company defined in property using WHEN/ENDWHEN

    *REC(EXPRESSION=%VALUE%, COMPANY=COMPANY.TARGETCOMP)

    *REC(EXPRESSION=0)

    ...

    where TARGETCOMP is a property containing target company
