Variable assignments using LOOKUP feature in BPC Script Logic

Hi Experts

I am trying to run a script where the scenario is I want to lookup a rate from the system and then create a record using that rate. To retrieve the rate, I have used the lookup feature (script in 1.txt attached).

You will see that I have hard coded the time dimension. That works; however, I want to run the script using a time variable. To do so, I included the two lines currently commented out in the dynamic script, and marked the time statements in the LGF file as

TIME = %TIME_DIM%.

This doesn't work. It gives me an error saying "

RUN_LOGIC:Members invalid On Dimension(TIME)

"

Do I surmise that lookup functions dont work with variables?

regards

    First about LOOKUP: If you don't specify some dimension in LOOKUP definition then the member of current record in WHEN/ENDWHEN loop will be used. Simply don't specify TIME in LOOKUP!

    Second - incorrect advanced script:

    PROMPT(SELECTINPUT,,,,"%TIME_DIM%")
    TASK(/CPMB/ICDATA_LOGIC,SUSER,%USER%)
    TASK(/CPMB/ICDATA_LOGIC,SAPPSET,%APPSET%)
    TASK(/CPMB/ICDATA_LOGIC,SAPP,%APP%)
    TASK(/CPMB/ICDATA_LOGIC,SELECTION,%TIME_DIM%)
    TASK(/CPMB/ICDATA_LOGIC,LOGICFILENAME,MP_CONVERSION.LGF)

    Has to be:

    TASK(/CPMB/ICDATA_LOGIC,SELECTION,%SELECTION%)

    am guessing the answer is going to be this?

    In general you can't read the value by LOOKUP and use it in some variable. No way!"
