Repost for a characteristics which is part of characteristic relationship


Dear Experts,

I want to create a repost function of a characteristics version, which is defined in characteristics relationship for my cube.

For example, I want to change version V01 to V02 using repost. With current forecasting period set in the table (which is refered in characteristic relationship to derive version) correct version is V02.

When I repost from V01 to V02, I get error

"Old value is V01, New Value is V02,

Derived characteristic overwritten again"

and my planning sequence fails. Meaning although in execute with trace I see that function is trying to repost, but ultimately characteristic relationship is overwriting the effect.

I do not want to try Repost on Basis of Characteristic relationship function as it will complecate my scenario.

My question is, it is possible to use repost function is a characteristic relationship exists for that field at infoprovider level in the modeler? Or it is a constraint that for characteristic relationship of type derive, I have to use only "Repost on Basis of Characteristic relationship" and I have no choice?

Thanks in advance
