Summing

Hello

I am using BPC for NW 7 and I have a requirement to build a report which includes a sum of distinct account hierarchy nodes into one result row. The account hierarchy nodes have different parents, so I cannot select the parent to achieve this result.

For example, I want to return the result of (node X + node Z) in one row.

Has anyone tried this? Is it possible without building another hierarchy?

regards, Sharon

    Hi Sharon -

    If you don;t want to create a second hierarchy, you could create Dimension Logic to sum up the two nodes Please consider installing logic similar to the following in the FORMULA property of the ACCOUNT dimension:

    [ACCOUNT].[X] + [ACCOUNT].[Z]

    Regards,

    Sheldon

    If the nodes are already in your excel report, you can always use regular excel formulas to add up the nodes.

    Otherwise create a 2nd EVDRE and return the nodes there, using regular excel formulas to sum that up.

    Hi,

    Create a New account and mention the account name in the ParentH2 Property of the different accounts you want to sum up.

    Example,

    In Your Case you want to sum X and Z, So create a new account A and maintain the Account Dimension as below,

    ID ParentH1  ParentH2
    X    D               A
    Z    F               A
    A
    

    When you include the account A in the report that will give the sum of X and Z.

    Note:

    X and Z should be a base member.

    A should not have any Parent.

    Hope this helps.

    Regards,
