planning

Hi all..

can u plese tell me which option is right..

.If the user have actual data in one cube and plan data in another RTP cube, what are the possible ways both data can be used for planning

a.create a mutiprovider including both actual and plan cube. Create a aggregation level on this and a Planning function to distribute planning data according to actual data

b.create a aggregation level on the planning cube .Create a mutiprovider combing the the aggregation level and the actual cube. Create a plan query on the mutiprovider to show both actual and plan data

c.since mutiprovider can not be used for creating a planning function, create a DTP to transfer data from actual cube to planning cube .

d. create a aggregation level on the planning cube .Create a mutiprovider combing the the aggregation level and the actual cube. Create a planning function on the mutiprovider to copy data from Actual to plan.

thaniks

    Hi Mansi,

    You will need to decide the best way for yourself based on the scenario you are facing and how you/users would want the application to shape up.

    A few points to be noted though

    - option (a) is the one mostly used

    - in case of (b) and (c), whenever the DTP is to be executed, the RT cube will first have to be shifted to loading mode - till the time its is this mode, planning applications wont run

    - (d) is incorrect - planning function cannot be created on a multiprov
