BW: Creating key figures in infocubes

Dear All,

I tried to create a key figure on a standard infocube but I noticed that, for this new key figure, all the characteristics having an update through a routine DO NOT have any routine associated anymore.

Could please provide me an info about the correct way to create key figures in infocubes?

Thank you in advance.

Regards,

R.C.

    Hi ,

    stnadard cube has been predfined with a definite set of rules how the the data comes from the source system and and how they are updated.

    If u are planning to create a new figure. u have to identify what is the purpose of this keyfigure and its usage and mode of updation.Once u have done all these then u can set up the way data coming from source system or it can inherit from existing keyfigures usign formula.

    Thanks

    Thank you very much for your help.

    I try to be more detailed. The steps I performed to create the key figure are the following:

    -Created the info object

    -Edited my ODS adding the info object (in the right side of the screen Edit ODS Object I added the info obj in the Data Fields)

    -In the Edit InfoCube: Key Figures section I added my key figure

    -I modified the updating rule for the infocube

    In this last step I noticed that my new key figure has not set correct the characteristics. I mean that all the characteristic that standardly are updated by routines now contain "blank". It seems that they have lost their routine (sorry for the improperty of my last sentence).

    Thank you

      Dear Roberto,

      I'm saying the following thing:

      when I add a key figure to the standard cube and I check its characteristics I find that, differently from the standard key figs for which all the chars are mapped correctly, those chars are "disconnected".

      I mean that all the chars that for the standard key figs are updated through a standard routine now in my new key figure they are mapped to "blank".

      What I'm asking is: must I remapped manually of them or there's a different process to do?

      Thanks a lot

      R.C.

    Hi Roberto,

    This had happened to me as well. Do the following

    1. Doube click on the Update Rules

    2. For a key figure which was ALREADY EXISTING, click on the Update Rule. The Update Rule:Detail will pop up.

    3. Click the Characteristic Tab.

    4. For each Characteristic, click on the Method button.

    5. The "Change Source" will pop up. Just click the Tick button. DO NOT chnage anything. A pop-up will ask "Do you want to transfer the source characteristic for this characteristo all key figures rules?" or, if it was a routine, it will ask "Transfer the routine for this characteristic to all the key figures for this update rule?".

    6. Do the above for all Characteristics.

    7. Click on the Time Ref. tab.

    8. Do step 4 and 5 for all the entries here as well.

    9. Now, go to the New Key figure, and you will see that all the routines have appaeared.

    Good luck,

    Bijith

    Hi Roberto,

    Oops, I forgot. In step 5, when it asks "Do you want to transfer to all ke fugures", click Yes.

    Regards,
