Compounding with time characteristics

Hi experts,

I have created a time-dependent characteristic for storing credit limit for customers ("ZCUSTCRED"). It has 0VALIDFROM as a compounding characteristic, 0VALIDTO and 0CRED_LIMIT as attributes. When I want to add this ZCUSTCRED characteristic to a cube, I got an error message stating 0VALIDFROM should be contained in the cube. ("Higher-level InfoObject 0VALIDFROM for InfoObject ZCUSTCRED is not contained").

My problem is that I have 0CALDAY in the cube and I thought is should be enough. Adding 0VALIDFROM to the cube just does not make sense for me as the cube contains financial documents.

Can you give me a hint how I should solve this problem or build a workaround for it?

Thanks and regards,

    Hi Csaba,

    in case you leave your infoobject zcustcred as is, you have to include the compounding characteristic in the cube. But I would recommend to change the infoobject. Take out the compounding and just have 0cred_limit as a time dependant attribute. I think this is the same as what you try to achieve with the compounding with 0validfrom.
