Calculation of CO profitability PCM 7.5

Hi all!

I made a model with Services costs, direct income and expenses in Revenue type dimension and allocations Line item values to the Cost Objects. And I need to calculate total revenue for every Cost Object and other some values (Profitability etc), i.e. I should use this formula


But when I write a Rule for Total Revenue - an element of Revenue type dimension, I don't see a CellValue in the Grid Values lists. How to display a result of Rule in a grid or book? And if I did something wrong, could you tell me how to calculate this values.

Rule for the Total Revenue:

Function CellValue

CellValue = Revenue - CostObjectValue - DirectServiceCostObjectValue

End Function

    Realize this is an old post, but I'm trying to dispatch the forum questions with no replies...

    It is correct that you won't see "cellvalue" from the grid values list within the View Builder. You will see however Revenue. You then have to provide the appropriate dimension members to find the value which was determined by the rule which is generically expressed as "cellvalue". For the Revenue grid value you have to specify the members from the following key fields: versions, periods, responsibility centers, revenue types, cost objects 1 - 5.

    For example if your Revenue is stored against a Revenue Type dimension and member "Revenue1" for example, then a formula against a "Total Revenue" member would be such as:

    Function CellValue

    CellValue = Revenue(,,,"Revenue1") - CostObjectValue - DirectServiceCostObjectValue

    End Function

    In your view select the Revenue grid value and filter the Revenue Types dimension member as "Total Revenue".

    You should be able to find related examples in the PCM documentation.

    For further information about the predefined profitability and costing model functions, you can refer to the "SAP BusinessObjects Profitability and Cost Management Reference Guide"

    I hope this helps.
