Range refresh of EPM 10.0 report

Version: SAP EPM 10.0 NW

In EPM excel Input form, i have local members in columns axis which have EPMRetrieveData or EPMCommentFullContext refer to row axis members. When user use the context menu to "EPM Insert Member", inserted row showing #RFR for the local members.

Note: I have User Option (Refresh only Expanded and Inserted members) checked.

Question: To overcome the problem i want to trigger Epm Range refresh in VBA after the row insert. How? Like to refresh columns C:D

Appreciate your insights

    Hi Andrew,

    Before going for VBA, need to check options within EPM only. Can you share the definition of local member and the screenshot of input form? Is "Use Excel cell Reference" ticked marked in local member definition?

      I just checked in my system with EPMRetrieveData function for local members....This error #RFR comes only when there is no data against that cross section..Otherwise after insert member , if there is data you can see refresh needed! For that case I think you can use EPMEXCEUTEAPI function in place of can use the function as this way....=EPMExecuteAPI("RefreshActiveSheet","Refresh"). This would have to be triggered manually...after the Insert.

    Try to use API RefreshSelectedCells()

    First Select with VBA the inserted row, then RefreshSelectedCells()
