Distribute fiscal year periods in key figure


I need to distribute the periods maintained in SPRO as part of a "Fiscal year variant" into a key figure in a planningbook.

I need to write the logic for this into a macro.

How can I include this into a macro? E.g. which operator/function should I choose to read the periods?

    I am not sure what you mean when you say 'distribute'. If you wish to aggregate/disaggregate your KFs using a Fiscal variant, the more common approach would be to create your 'time' profiles using your Fiscal variant instead of using the standard calendar.

    So, if your source data is to be stored in terms of Fiscal periods rather than calendar periods, create your Storage Bucket Profile using FY variant. If your data is to be displayed in terms of Fiscal periods, create a Time bucket profile using a FY variant.

    Best Regards,

      Hi DB49

      To explain in more details:

      The planningbook in APO displays the data in both fiscal year and weeks.


      01.01.2013 - 27.01.2013 (week 1-4) belongs to period 1 in the fiscal year variant

      28.01.2013 - 24.02.2013 (week 5-8) belongs to period 2 in the fiscal year variant

      25.02.2013 - 31.03.2013 (week 9-13) belongs to period 3 in the fiscal year variant

      I would like to have the period numbers displays in a key figure in the planningbook, since I would like to see which periods of the fiscal year each week belongs to.

      Hope this explains what I would like to do.
