Partial data of a compounded characteristic

Hi,

I was wondering if you guys know of a easier way to suppress a portion of the compounded characteristic. Here is an example.

0GL_ACCOUNT is compounded with 0CHRT_ACCTS. Here are how the values displayed on the report.

GL Account

-


USNA/account1

USNA/account2

USNA/account3

USNA/account4.....

I need to know if there is a way to chop off the first five characters when this report is opened. If there is no way, I am thinking of using update rules to do it. But I thought if there is a requirement in future to display the chart of accounts and the gl account off of this cube, I will be at a loss.

Regards,

Abdul

    Hi Siggi,

    Thanks a lot. I tried your 1st recommendation and it worked like a charm. You have no idea how much time I am saving because of this. Otherwise I was planning on creating a new attribute without the compounding and load the master data.

    Thanks again.

    Hi Abdul,

    1st possibility: put 0CHRT_ACCTS into the filter and restrict it to 'USNA'.

    2nd possibility: put 0CHRT_ACCTS just before the 0GL_ACCOUNT in your rows and set the attributes to no display.

    regards

    Siggi
