Copy values of Helper KFs

Hi Experts,

In order to reduce the complexity of some of our designs, we have used the helper KFs, however, there are some helper KFs whose values needs to be copied into some stored KFs. When we are trying to execute Copy operator with the helper KF as source, the Copy operators are failing.

Kindly tell us, if helper KFs an be used in Copy operators source. To my knowledge we cannot use them as target KFs, however, helper KFs as source used to work previously

Regards,

Sourojit

    Hi Suorojit,

    The copy (COPY) operator is primarily used to copy calculated or stored values from one key figure to a stored key figure in the same version of a planning area (base or other).

    Hi Suorojit

    Since you are just copying values from a helper KF, it is better that you use key figure expression on the targeted KF, where you want the value to be copied.

    • Hello Ayan,

      If we use the Key figure expression(Calculation logic) on the target KF, how do you trigger that calculation? and thereby changing existing value in KF and storing it to database?

    Hello Suorojit,

    I have the same problem here; I have a Helper key figure that has all the needed Key figure calculation; When I use it in the copy operator as source KF, i get an error saying the "Helper" key figure is not in _BASELINE version;

    Do you think, Helper key figures can be used in COPY operators by IBP design?

    Thanks
