BPC EPM 10.0 - Displaying data in a report using EPMDimensionOverride

Hi BPC experts,

I would like to display rows on a report based on a member selection done on a parameter page. To do it, I use EPMDimensionOverride on the page axis report using "parameter page" as a reference in the formula.I have this kind of formula:


In the parameter central page, the user might select ID but also hierarchical levels of a member.

E.g.: For dimension "Site" he may select "OS_AA" (the base level, ID of the dimension) or "GAA" (group society, parent of "OS_AA") or even a higher hierarchical level like "EMEA".

Here is the problem. For some reason, my report filters well when I select the ID in the parameter as well as some hierarchical levels like "GAA". But for "EMEA", I have no rows displaying... I am sure that EMEA is in the H1 where I also find "GAA" in this example.

Has someone already faced this kind of issue?

Thanks in advance,

    Do you have the same ID (EMEA) in other dimension(s)? Have you tried EPMMemberID

    Hi Vadim, Lucas

    Thanks for your revert

    I add more details :

    Hereafter an example of selection the user has to make in the local parameter tab :

    DimensionRole to selectCC_ORIGIN_CC_Site_directorsSITE_ORIGIN_S_EMEA_AreaTIME2018.02CURRENCYLocal CurrencyIn the restitution page, he gets:

    In cell C6, the formula is the following :

    =EPMDimensionOverride("000";"SITE_ORIGIN";RECHERCHEV('Local parameter'!C4&'Local parameter'!B4;Profiles_list[[PK]:[Member]];4;FAUX))

    RECHERCHEV is the french version of VLOOKUP.

    'Local parameter'!C4&'Local parameter'!B4 gives "_S_EMEA_AreaSITE_ORIGIN". The matching for this is "EMEA" in the table "Profiles_list" which is located in another tab in the same workbook.


    You are right, I have this ID "EMEA" in another dimension. I also though it could be a problem for the EPM formula to spot what I was looking for due to potential ambiguity. But the level 1 of the hierarchy (e.g. of member : GAA) is also present in another dimension and for this, it works.

    I did not try so far EPMMemberID, I test that and go back to you :)

    • Nothing attached...

      Sorry, but looks like it's a waste of time...

      How it's possible to help you if you don't want to provide full and clear info?

      In general if you have some issue - then it's a bad idea to show this issue on the complex report!

      Create a simple test report to illustrate your issue and post it.
