On Input Enabled Query

Hi

I have 4 key figures in my planning query, Actual $, Backlog $, Forecast Qty and Amount. While the first two are actuals for the previous periods, the other two are input enabled for the open periods. If i am not enterting any values for the input enabled key figures everything is remaining blank, but the moment

I enter a number and save its automatically updating the blank actual and backlog $ cells with 0. Though there is no value assocaited with them I want those cells to remain blank, how can i achieve this

Thanks

Rashmi.

    Hi,

    Whenever a record is created in the cube, if you do not have values in some of the key figures, the system will put zeros there. That is what seems to be happening in your case.

    What you could do is to have a separate characteristic combination for the first two columns and the next two which are input ready, for eg., use a characteristic 'version' the value for which will be different for the first two columns and the two input ready KFs. So when a records gets created for the input ready KFs' combinations, there still would be no records for the combination corresponding to the non input ready KFs and they would continue showing blank.
