Addition of keyfigure in ODS

Hi All,

Setting the Key figure update rule to additive ..the original record is still getting over written by the new Key figures..

Like for the same set of Keyfields..

1. Amt 500

2. Amt -200

The result is -200

But I need to add them both up to get 300.

How do I achieve this??

Thanks

Ashish.

    Hi Ashish,

    do you have switched the update method of your KF or is the summation the first (and the only) method used from the beginning ?

    Have you checked in the change-log table all the history of your record (in this way you can see also the 'reversal' records/changes) ?

    Bye,

    Roberto

    I have switched it for the Key figure only in the update rules.

    The extractor is a custom extractor built by R/3 guys.

    In what conditions can the key figures be added up..can it be done on BW side or should that be taken care of in the extractor itself??

    Thanks

      Hi Ashish,

      if you want to use 'addition' update mode for your KF you have to consider this behavior:

      creation of record : 500

      modification of record (storno): -500

      modification of record (new image): 200

      Only in this case you will find 200 in active table data !

      Otherwise, if your extractor doesn't produce the reversal records (you don't have the second record of the previous example), you have to use the overwrite method...

      Hope it helps (and please don't forget to assign some points by clickin'on the yellow star to the contributors that help you !!)

      Bye,

      Roberto
