Customization of BCF Standard Package in EPM 10

Experts,

We need your help with BCF Business Rule package in SAP BPC EPM 10.

Standard out of the box package has four dimensions as the parameters for scoping the dimension for BCF rules to run, that in MDX and even the business rules are set up by Account, Data source and the Flow dimension. But we have a requirement to further scope the business rule by four more user defined dimensions, like Profit_Center, Trading_Partner and couple more.

I am trying to update the package to include remaining four dimensions in the package filter list but it is not working. I need to know if we can do that and if we can then where am I going wrong? Following is the example of the code that I have now...

*RUN_PROGRAM COPYOPENING

CATEGORY = %CATEGORY_SET%

CURRENCY = %RPTCURRENCY_SET%

TID_RA = %TIME_SET%

ENTITY = %ENTITY_SET%

OTHER = [PROFIT_CENTER = %PROFIT_CENTER%]

OTHER = [TRADING_PARTNER = %TRADING_PARTNER%]

OTHER = [RI_CODE = %RI_CODE%]

OTHER = [CAT_CODE = %CAT_CODE%]

*ENDRUN_PROGRAM

Also, i have updated the data manager package to include the extra dimensions in the selection filter but still the package would not scope it depending on the selection. Any help in this matter is really appreciated. Let me know if you need any more information. We are really running out of time and we need to figure out the solution ASAP. Thank you very much.

Mandar.

    Hi Mandak,

    First of all you need to check the program in the BW system, whether its accepting the other dimensions also. Whatever, dimensions and members, you are mentioning, after the RUN_PROGRAM statement, are actually passed to this program as parameters. So, you need to ensure that the program has been written to accept other dimensions also. If yes, then check in which format the program is expecting these additional parameters.

    Alternatively, you can create your own program based on the standard program to suit your additional requirements.

    Hope this helps.

      Thanks Nilanjan, we will look in to the program in BW system. I also have one more question about the way Balance Carry forwards work in BPC. we have legal consolidation setup (YTD) in BPC and we have a couple of types of balance carry forwards annual and monthly. Annual carry forwards are basically standard carry forwards like equity etc. but we have few accounts that we need to RF every month (Jan to Feb, Feb to Mar). We are using the business rules to achieve this. But I am guessing since the model is YTD model, monthly carry forwards are not working as expected. If we run the package for FEB then it pulls the numbers from Dec of the previous year as opposed to ending balances of Jan month. I think I am missing a step here, may be there is some setting in TIME dimension? Can you please confirm if we can do it in YTD App? Thanks again for your help.
