Please help! Multiple users accessing the same data sets

Hi all,

Can anyone provide a bit of insight in to a question I have?

We have two users that require to see the same set of data in the BPC Excel interface at the same time. The information is employees and date.

User 1 would like to see All Employee SignedData for 1 month, and User 2 would like to see just a slice of the Employees for 1 month.

If both of the Users are logged in at the same time, what will happen in terms of SAP 'locking' the data set? I am aware of Data Access Profiles to restrict their access to particular Master Data but there will be the requirement for users to see (maybe just in read-only), data that is shared between both Users.

Will it throw up an error or can I make it so that users have 'read only' access?

Any advice would be very much appreciated!

    Hi Nick,

    Reading same data is not a problem at all. You can check that Dimension as secure and in members access profile provide just Read access for those 2 users.

    Hope this helps,

      Hi Nick,

      No issue with that at all.

      They can even both have write access. If they try to update the exact same record at the same time BPC will just keep writing Delta records.

      User A enters 10

      User B enters 20

      User A refreshes and will get 20

      User B refreshes and also gets 20
