Dynamic Template queries

Hi,

i have created a user defined dimension called "items", but somehow this dimension didn't automatically appear in my "freeze dimension setting" in the dynamic templates. and when i tried to manually input "items" at the next available row in "freeze dimension setting", the override effect doesn't seem to work.

any input on this?

cheers

    In order to evaluate, I need to know the template number, your BPC version and the dimension type on the item account. Once I have those I may be able to determine your issue.

    Thanks.

      Be sure to check each of the dynamic templates -- I've never bothered to fix them all, but the control panels are not 100% consistent in how they handle the user-defined dimensions. (Some of the inconsistency is by design, e.g. the cat-comparison, or the 2-dim row expansion, etc.)

      Also note that these templates assume that your user-defined dimensions will be dimension types U1 through U13. If you happen to have one of your dimensions as type U14 or higher, it won't show up in the control panel, and you need to manually fix the control panel. This may happen if you create an application, then remove & add a number of dimensions to it. The U-numbers don't get renumbered in sequence starting from 1, so you may have an app with U20, U21, U22, etc.
