OutlookSoft 4.2 SP3: Copy Package on DataSrc dimension

Greetings,

I'm trying to use Copy package to copy previous month's balances for balance sheet accounts into a open balance member of data source dimension. My data source dimension has following members: Total adjustments has two children: input and opening balance.

I am not able to copy total adjustments ( calculated member) into next months opening balance member. I can only copy non calculated data source members. Is there a workaround?

Thanks,

Roman

    Not with the standard DM package. These work in the SQL tables so you can only reference base level records. The options would be to either setup a specific package for the balance roll-forward that lets you take multiple datasrc and map them into one or use modeling logic to perform the task. Modeling (aka scripting) would be the simpler approach and would not be much coding.
