    Hi Kuntal,

    <b>The key figure is a cumulative value</b>

    The key figure is a cumulative value. In every time unit, for which values of this key figure are to be reported, values must be posted for these key figures.

    <b>The key figure is a non-cumulative value with change</b>

    The key figure is a non-cumulative value. An additional key figure belongs to this key figure, which displays the non-cumulative value change.

    Only those values for selected times (markered curves) are saved for the non-cumulative value. The values for the other times are calculated on the basis of a markered curve and the non-cumulative value changes in between.

    <b>Non-cumulative value change for a non-cumulative value</b>This key figure represents the non-cumulative value change of a non-cumulative value.

    <b>The key figure is NCum. value with in- and out- flow</b>The key figure is a non-cumulative value. Two additional key figures belong to this key figure, which display the in- and outflow of the non-cumulative value.

    Only those values for selected times (markered curves) are saved for the non-cumulative value. The values of the remaining times are calculated on the basis of the value in a markered curve, and the non-cumulative value inflows and outflows inbetween.

    <b>Inflow key figure for a non-cumulative value</b>

    This key figure represents the inflow of a non-cumulative value.

    <b>Outflow for a non-cumulative value</b>

    This key figure represents the outflow of a non-cumulative value.

    Hope it resolves

    Regards

    Karthik

    ****Thanks for whatever points you choose to assign me.

    Hi,

    Cumulative:

    It is summation of Keyfigure

    Non-Cumulative:

    Non-cumulatives need their own store as they are measured relative to a point in time and need a special aggregation.Therefore, a distinction is made between two types of key figures: Cumulative values and non-cumulative values. A cumulative value is a key figure that is measured in relation to a time period. Such key figures (for example, sales revenue by division) can be aggregated with regard to time, that is, added up over several periods. Non-cumulative values are key figures that cannot be usefully added over time. With non-cumulative values such as "Number of Employees", it is not useful to add up the number of employees over different periods, but rather to form the average over the period. In the case of stock prices, for example, it is the maximum, minimum and mean values within a time period that are important, and not the total.
