Journals - Send data to parent level?

For EPM NW, Excel schedules can send to parent level members using the option "Send Parent Data to the Server on Save Data". Since journal functionality is on the web, is there a similar parameter that allows the same for journals?

    Sorry, but what do you want to achieve? What is the business idea?

    What is your BPC version?

    Just a high level question...meaning, I was asked if BPC could do on the web for journals what it can do in Excel with EPM. I know it will require badi logic (manipulating the CALC property)---but, I also know Excel EPM requires setting a "Send data to parent" parameter in the input schedule to "enable" sending to such members. My question is, assuming we have the necessary journal default logic (badi) is there any setting for the Web journal that needs to be set in a similar way?

    Currently on EPM SP25 P3 but considering AO 2.6 if that matters.

    High level answer: No, journals are not able to send data to parent level. And there are no settings.

    But to my mind the idea of journal disaggregation looks strange :) Journals are very simple delta input.

    The journal functionality works way different than a normal data input. The data first goes to a journal table where all the entries are kept with all the details, and then the amounts are posted to the model.

    This functionality you're mentioning, if I am not wrong is the "break-back functionality" available in BPC on HANA (1903169 - Break back for Planning and Consolidation 10.0 NW) and this functionality is definitely not available for journals.

    I thought about potentially using BADI UJJ_CALCULATED_AMOUNT and build a custom "disaggregation" yourself, but it fails because of the parent member before even hitting the BAdI. So I am afraid there is no easy way to achieve this in an orthodox way.
