BPC10NW: Load YTD data and show on Periodic measure

HI Friends

I have a question regarding cumulative data. I have a BI infocube which is getting a request every month for cumulative data. But in BPC, I want to show the data on monthly basis. I am aware that if I load the data in BPC on periodic measure, I can report it on YTD/QTD basis, but not sure if the reverse also works, i.e. load data on YTD (or cumulative, since a set start time) and show and plan on periodic level.

If not, what are the options for me to achieve it like end routine in BI staging .

Thanks for your suggestions.

-SM

    Hi

    In a YTD BPC application - BPC will report periodic values - by calculating periodic as this period's YTD less last period's YTD to derive periodic

    Hi, SM.

    You can modify the Periodic measure formula of YTD application.

    Please refer to the following docs:

      Thanks Linda and Eddy

      As the amounts here I am looking at are cumulative since the beginning of projects and not necessarily from the beginning of current year, I am going with approach of calculating the monthly values in BI side before loading it into BPC.
