BPC report NW 10 subtotal with sorting and grouping is incorrect

Hello,

I would like to realize the subtotal by companies and profit center.

Calculation Sales for the next year by company and Profit center Sales N % Incraese Sales N+1 Company A Profit center1 100.00 10.00% 110.00 Company A Profit center2 100.00 5.00% 105.00 Company A Profit center3 100.00 1.00% 101.00 TOTAL 300.00 30.00% 390.00 316 Company B Profit center2 100.00 10.00% 110.00 Company B Profit center4 100.00 10.00% 110.00 TOTAL 200.00 20.00% 240.00 220

The subtotal is wrong , for example company B , the subtotal is 200*1.2=240 instead of 110+110 = 220

In order to calculation for TOTAL, we used the function 'Sorting and grouping (see bpc-function-sorting-and-grouping-with-subtotal.png and for the colummn Sales N, % increase and Sales N+1 , we used the default formatting sheet (see bpc-format.png)

BPC dont used the function subtotal 'sorting and grouping but the formula of format sheet and its incorret in order to calculation TOTAL

question : what is the solution in order to calculate 220 and not 240 for the company B

NB : its is a dynamic report

    Please prepare your question in a readable form!

    1. Text with correct line breaks.

    2. Pictures added using "Insert Image"

    Little do I know about your setup. But assuming you're using local member to calculate Sales N+1, enable "Apply to rows as priority"

    • From my experience it's a bad idea in general to use content override in the format sheet.

      Better to use local members.

      For subtotals better to use some root parent in profit center dimension.

    I don't wish to use the solution with local member because in reality my EPM reports has 80 columns with 10 columns with subtotals is incorrect because it's a calcultation with format views

    Finally, I created VBA in order to solve the problem of sub total

    I'm disappointed that I dont find the standard solution

    • VBA???? Strange idea!

      May be you didn't read my answer :(

      By the way, your report looks like "creative accounting" :)

      I can explain you what to do, but you need to provide full requirements of your report.
