# Help with cumulative KF

Hi All,

I have a KF (day wise split) for a particular month. The requirement is to get the cumulative values for the month. The twist is, the value on the first day is to be added with a constant value and that value has to get cumulated with the values on the next day. This requirement is supposed to be acheived in reporting aspect only.(No design changes).

Ex: 01.01.2008 - 10

02.01.2008 - 20

03.01.2008 - 30

Requirement is 10+constant(100 say) = 110

110 should be cumulated to 20 = 130

130 + 30 = 160 and so on till the end of the month.

Regd,

Arya

Hi,

Reporting level it is not possible. You can achieve only throw update rule level.

Hi Vivek,

The report is built up on a multiprovider.

The key figure we are talking about is a CKF(say C) which is actually the difference of 2 other keyfigures (say A (Info Provider 1) & B(Info Provider 2))....(which implies C= A - B. )

Now the requirement mentioned should be applied on C.

Can you suggest any possibilities basing on the situation we are in?

Regards,

Arya K.

Hi,

To my understanding, the constant can be treated as "CarryForward" field, isn' t it?

solution1: you add a new row as "CarryForward" part which had the mandatory constant value in your query and hide it.

solution2: in the Formula, you add a variable whose value is Constant/the days in this month.

hope this helps.

Hi,

In this situation, if u want to achieve cumulative values, then u have take the values in to stages. Then only u can achieve. Try this solution.

1. Create ODS based on common structure of both info providers.

2. Create final Info Cube, than will map with new ODS that we have created.

3. Create a start routine and read all the ods data into an internal table.

4. In the update routine level, find all the values relate with the communication structure values. Append the values and assign to the key figure value.

This little lengthy process. Analyze based on business perspective and take action.
