Variable of type Characterisic in layout in Multi planning area


I have created a multi planning area containing one basic multi cube that contains all actual data, and one transactional info cube which should contain all planning data. We are working with different planning versions for which I have created a variable. In the planning layout I want to point the value of version for the actual data to #, and the plan data to the variable value of the version. Since the user should be able to choose between different versions when he enters the layout I want the variable to contain different selection values. It works fine if the variable only contains one value for selection, but if I ad several values the system returns the message "Variable ZVER" could not be replaced".

I have done the exact same thing in a layout created from a basic area, and there it works OK. Am I doing something wrong? The two areas does not contain the exact same key figures, but I cannot see that that should be the problem as every column already points to the relevant basic area.

Best regards,

Annika Hellstrand

    Hello Annika,


    Have you set the variable to "user restriction required"? That might help... I do not see any reason why there should be a difference between a single area and a multi area. If it works in a single area it should work in the multi area as well. Maybe in your case it is a special case I am currently not aware off - if it does not work with the "user restriction required" then I would suggest I have a look at the system directly (if this is possible...).

    Best regards,

      Hi Gerd!

      Thank you for your reply!

      I did set the variable to "User restriction required", but it still does not work. I will arrange for you to get a user tomorrow, so that you can look in our system directly.
