building summarization levels for reporting

Hi All,

Our system is very slow to execute COPA reports. I am willing to create summarization levels.

1. I let the system create a proposal

2. I created hiearchy levels

3. I uploaded the levels with data

4. I checked whether reports are reading hierarchy level

I am a little bit confused how this summarization level is intedted to work. I tested the summarization. It works by 1-2 reports, but not for the rest.

So my question is, when a summarization level is applicable for a report?

For examle, if I summarize for customer... and in the report I have characteristics customer... does the system takes this summarization level or not? If in general I need customer in all of our reports as characteristics, I won´t be able to use summarization level for customer?

    I am looking somehow for similar answer.

    When the system does proposal for sum. levels why the created levels are not used.

    For your information. If you have just created new reports and hope to get them speed up it might not work properly.

    When you use the proposal of levels the system analysis the ones last used. If some reports are used not often they might not be considered.

    So you need to watch and fine tune it.

    I noticed that the index which is important to access the level, does not really match our criteria. The sum. level might have the right data but not very good index.

    Further you could check the usage of fixed characteristics. For example you copy a simple sum. level with certain data and you add fixed characteristics. Example, company code 01.

    But the magical question when it is utilized is also open. Don't forget to activate the usage of sum. levels in the report attributes itself.
