Copy function with cumulative (YTD) figures in SEM-BCS 6.0


Hi Guys,

I'm trying to congifure the copy function with cumulative input

In version 100 (actuals) I have loaded a periodic value for p1-12 of 2008

At the end of the year the users want to copy only the cumulative values, ie p12 YTD

This should post to p12, 2008 version 200 (with no change in group currency)

I have tested the configuration in BCS to copy the periodic values no problem (eg p1, v100 copies to p1, v200 when it is configured as input type = periodic)

However, when I choose cumulative (settings: input type = cumulative), the figures don't make any sense.

1. is there something I am forgetting to do?

2. I thought of a source selection (p1-12) and target selection (p12) but the period characteristic is not available in the selection tab.

3. is there a mapping I can set up?

Thanks for any help, I have lots of BCS experience and I'm happy to help with any other problems you may have - let me know.
