Distribute monthly data to month days equally

Hi experts,

Has anyone ever done a dynamic distribution function or FOX in order to distribute monthly data (any month, since each one has different number of days) to the respective month days?

I would appreciate any help or idea on the above.

Thanks in advance.

    Hi,

    I have written FOX to distribute monthly data in weeks (where no. of weeks are different for each month).

    Let me know your exact requirement with the characteristics & KFs iinvolved and I'll suggest how to write the FOX.

    Regards,

    Deepti

    Complex coding has to be written if we go with FOX or ABAP. We have this functionality in a simple way using update rules. In the update rules, suppose if we want to distribute monthly data to daily basis on equal proportions, in the rule for 0calday, choose time distribution and assign 0calmonth with normal calendar or factory calendar. This will distribute data to daily basis. Just check this feasilibility.

      Hi Bindu,

      I want to do the distribution in BI-IP and I don't use update rules since I have a real-time infoprovovider for which I want to distribute data, so my guess is the I have to go with a FOX Formula in BI-IP.

      Thanks anyway

    Hi Deepti,

    thanks for the quick response.

    I have one K.F: 0FM_AMOUNT1 and regarding time characteristics I use/can use the Followings:

    0CALDAY

    0FISCPER

    0FISCPER3

    0FISCVARNT

    0FISCYEAR

    What i want to achieve is to provide the month through a user input variable (preferable 0FISCPER: eg 200901) and for this month to distribute data evenly to the days of the month. Even better would be to distriute all months to their respective days since I have already done a distribution of year to the months and then use the distributed data of each month i select with a copy function.

    I hope this will give you an idea as to the requirements.

    Thanks again

    Ioanna
