    CKF can used global across diff queries on the same Infoprovider.

    Formula is local to the query and cannot be used across other queries.

    Save time ..Create CKF's.

    You can also do an <b>Exception aggregation</b> while creating a <b>Calculated Key Fig</b> which is not available while creating a <b>Formula</b>....

    Performance wise, it's better to run with CKF's.
