Use one dimension to feed 2 other dimensions

Is there a way to use one dimension to push data into two other dimensions using push logic? The client has one dimension in App1 that is a combination of 2 dimensions in App2 ie the Costcenter dimension in App1 is a combination of Plant and Account in App2.

Now they want to push data from App1 into App2 using the Costcenter dimension to populate the Plant and Account.

I have Plant and Acct properties in the Costcenter dimension for mapping.

I tried to use *Rename_dim CC= CC.Plant and *Rename_dim CC=CC.Acct but would get errors when validating the logic script.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi,

    Assuming that each CC member in App1 corresponds to single specific Plant-Account intersection I'd suggest using CC dimension properties PLANT and ACCOUNT.

    The you could use *REC instruction with %CC%.PLANT and %CC%.ACCOUNT parameters to populate that particular interserction using the value of current CC member.

    Hope this helps,

      The Plant and Account dimension does not exist in App2.

      I did try using the properties in the *REC but got errors that Plant is an invalid dimension in lookup rule.

      *REC(CC=CC.RPT_A, PLANT=CC.PLANT)

    The problem is the fact that you are using Rename.

    You can use Rename for one dimension but for the other one you have to use ADD not one more time rename.

      If I cannot use Rename for the other dimension, how can I use ADD and have it refer to the property needed to populate the Plant dimension in App2? Doesn't ADD mean hardcoding one member ID?

    Yes you are right.

    I understood your problem now,

    Actually you need Rename twice.

    What was the error message received when you tried to validate the logic?
