FOX calculation in BPS

Hi Experts,

I am new to BPS and I'm facing a FOX formula creation problem so some help is needed. We have a planning layout where users may enter amounts in 5 rows. Lead Column has 'Item' and Data Column has 'Posting period' and 'Version'. We have got 12 columns for each month with key figure ZNETTO, version 'T1' and Posting period '0FISCPER3'. Row totals are in the last column.

I have tried to create a FOX formula to do the following calculation from the user entries: = ({Row1Row2Row3}) - ({Row4 + Row5}).

The calculation function would be placed behind a button on the planning layout.

My latest try was: OPERAND DISPLAY {Key Figure Name,Item,Fiscal year}

but I got always some error stating that 'Item' is not recognized Item or some syntax error.

Now some help would be really valuable; how the code should look like and what should I select for 'Fields to Be Changed' and for 'Fields for Condition' ?

Let's start with this, many thanks for your help in advance!

Best regards,

Riku

    Hi,

    Fields to be changed should be only those which differ between the columns - only 'month' (posting period) i suppose.

    For help regarding your error, please post the error message and your complete code. It would be easier then, to help you.

      Thanks again guys, but it's not the master data activation issue either (I wish it was!).

      When I chose all the characteristics to field to be changed and = 1000. it wrote this then in to the cube. We are still troubleshooting and trying to find the solution so any ides are welcome! Something related to this Consolidation Chart of Accounts + Item combination...

      Best regards,
