      If new MEASURE gets added to Measure's table , in BPC Client , etools->client Options-> Refresh Dimensions should get the new measure into the CurrentView .IF not try etools->client Options-> Clear Local application information .

      Formula 2 :

      (MEASURES.SIGNEDDATA,

      CLOSINGPERIOD(%TIMEDIM%.

      %TIMEBASELEVEL%))

      This formula is used to retrieve AST & LEQ account values.

      If current time member is at monthlevel ,ie ClosingPeriod of 2011.FEB is the current member it self ,and would retrieve 2011.FEB value.

      If Current time member is at quarter level then ClosingPeriod of 2011.Q1 is 2011.Mar ,and would retrieve 2011.MAR value.

      If Current time member is at year level then ClosingPeriod of 2011.TOTAL is 2011.DEC ,and would retrieve 2011.DEC value.

      Formula 1 :

      MEASURES.SIGNEDDATA

      Irrespective of the level of the Time , MEASURES.SIGNEDDATA would retrieve current Time member value.This formula is used to retrieve INC & EXP account values

      if current time member is at month level,2011.FEB , 2011.FEB value is retrieved.

      if current time member is at quarter level,2011.Q1 , 2011.Q1(JANFEBMAR) value is retrieved.

      if current time member is at year level,2011.TOTAL , 2011.TOTAL(JAN,FEB,....,DEC) value is retrieved.

      Hope this helps.
