open data slice for data entry and close afterwards


Dear all,

I have created one data slice for a characteristic combination country xy in order to prevent the data entry within the data entry query for the user. But for some reason I have to run a planning function in order to summarize some values and write a total value in the characteristic e.g. country xy.

The planning function brings out an error message because this can not be executed due to the fact that this combination is protected.

Is there a way to open the data slice before the planning function is writing the data in the cube? I have tried to to this in the Data slice exit, but I do not have an idea how to open the DS, save the data and close the DS again.

We are running NW BI 7.0. Any ideas would be great.

Best regards,

Stefan from Munich/Germany
