Dimension formula - solve_order

In SAP BPC 7.5 I created a dimension formula. The formula works fine for the base elements of the time hierarchy, but gives wrong values for the quarter and year because of the wrong solve order. I think this is a problem for the solve_order functionality, but how can I specify the time hierarchy to be solved as last, as the hierachy is no explicit formula?

    Hi,

    Did you have a look to SAP note 1478786?

    Depending the value of the solve_order you're using, this note could be useful.

    Hope it helps,

    Kind Regards,

    Patrick

    Hi Patrick,

    thanks for your answer. Unfortunately I don't have a ytd-application, I have a periodic application.

    I hope someone can help

    We had the same issue. We had to include the solve order in the formula. Here is an example.

    IIF([ACCOUNTOPS].[SKF_PLBS]=0,NULL,[ACCOUNTOPS].[VarOH_Prodsupplies]/([ACCOUNTOPS].[SKF_PLBS])),SOLVE_ORDER=20
