BI-IP Data Slices to lock/unlock planning data.

Hi Experts!.

Can anyone provide an advise or guidence to use data slices for lock and unlock planning data using data slice with IP?.

I was read the SAP Help documentation about Data Slicing but stills unclear when to use data slice with exits and when to use selections...

My customer's requirement is basicly tu protect data in the outdate during the planning process. I mean, the planner defines a planning window from start date to end date. For eg. from 04/01/2009 until 04/10/2009 transactional data is available to plan, any data out of date range will be protected.

The main planning application es web-based and builded with IP.

Please advice, thanks in advance...

    I think, you can create 2 Data Slices, one is only based on the selection of Version, another one is based on the selection of Version and Fiscal Per3.

    For example: a Data Slice with two characteristics. >:With chars: version and fiscper3. >version A; fiscper3 not lock.-->version B; fiscper3 lock from January to May.

    Also you can customize the standard locking functionality of IP,in context of your application rather than Data slice. pls chk information over here:

      Sorry the code got corrupted by an SDN update ...

      But you can still see it, if you take a look at the HTML source code of this page.

      You can do thîs e.g. by clicking on View->Source in IE. Once you see the HTML coding search for "method my_dataslice" and you will find the source code.
