BPC: Converting year/periode to TIME using BPC 10 Netveawer


We are loading the time dimension in BPC with data from the
BW info object 0fiscper. The info object 0fiscper has the format yyyymmm and I
would like to convert it to yyyy.mmm (just adding a period (.) between year and
month). How can this be done in the conversion file?

Example: 2013003 -> 2013.003

Kind regards
