Not able to change key figure data type

Hello ,

I´m in editing mode and despite that I can´t change the data type of a key figure - I want to change it from CURR to FLTP ( in order to have a precise value) but some how this field is enabled.

Do you know how to change it?

Thanks,

Marta.

    try by logging off from the server. Do the step after logging in.

    and also check wether this object being used or not.

    Hello,

    It is usually possible to change the meaning and the text of an InfoObject. However, only limited changes can be made to certain properties, in case the InfoObject is used in InfoCubes or ODS objects.

    With key figures, for example, you cannot change the key figure type, the data type, or the aggregation, as long as the key figure is still being used in an InfoCube/ODS object. Use the Check function to get hints on incompatible changes.

    Regds,

    Hi Marta,

    yes its true that u cant change the properties of th KF when its bieng used. But u can do one thing. Try deleting the data in the cubes and DSO 's which make use of this KF, if you are allowed to. then change it. In this case it should work.
