How To Change Key Figure Name

Hi Gurus,

Is it possible to change the name of a Key Figure in Demand Planning? For example, in DP, i have a Key Figure name 'Sales Forecast'. The 'Sales Forecast' currently appears in every Planning book it was set.

Now, for alignment of understanding, I need to change the name from 'Sales Forecast' to 'Sales Demand' . Basically, i just need to change the text that appear in the Planning book and in the extracted BI reports.

Logic of Key Figure will remain the same. Is this possible? How do I go about this? I only know of how to add a Key Figure but never thought of how to change the Key Figure name/description.

Thanks in advance!

    Hi,

    You can change it in 2 ways.

    1] Go to each Planning Book in Edit mode.

    In that go to a Tab called Key Figure Attributes.

    Select your Sales Forecast Key figure from the dropdown against Key Figure.

    Then in Description click the radio button Free Text and give your new name which is Sales Demand.

    This you have to do for all the PB in which this KF is used.

    2] Go to RSA1 : Admin Workbench

    Under Modeling section go to InfoObject.

    Select your KF. Double Click on it. Or right click and go to Change mode.

    Then change the Long and Short Description of the KF as desired.

    Save & Activate the KF.

    This will change your KF description for all the PB in which you have used the same PA.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks,

    Pushkar

    Goto designmode the planning book where you want to change the description of the keyfigure and select the keyfigure attribute tab in the planning book and select the keyfigure and there is the free text tab there you can maintain the text for the keyfiure.

    Hope this will solve your problem.
