IP: Dataslice causes planning function to abort on partially protected data


Hi everyone,

a simple IP question: I have a planning layout for actual/forecast/budget value planning, where all actual value columns up to the point where they exist and a couple of forecast columns (according to the forecasting scheme) are blocked from entry by a dataslice. This works well for manual value input, but once I execute a planning function, it aborts with an error saying that the dataslice is blocking any value change.

I was expecting that the dataslice protects those values not to be changed from being touched by the planning function, but apparently it aborts as soon as it runs on an "error". Making that kind of a selection within the planning function is not really an option, and filters don't work the way I need it.

Any ideas? Thanks and regards
