      Hi Oliver,

      there were some early discussions with SAP Education in Europe and the EMEA EPM RIG has some plans as well. But so far no dates have been determined.

      But look out for announcements.

      During the Elite Partner Training session the following question came up. How do we convert a BW multi-key figure model to a BPC generic single key figure model?

      BW rule groups in DTPs are a great way of doing it and we will cover that in the exercises. But the BPC transformation file can be used as well. Here is the syntax:

      Keyword: MVAL
      Mapping command usage:
      Dimension =*MVAL(keyfiguretype1|dim_mem1||keyfiguretype2|dim_mem2||keyfiguretype3|dim_mem3 )

      The dimension must be one existed column in the cube.

      The dimension members in dim_mem must be the base members of the dimension (CALC = ‘N’).

      The key-figure type must be the field name of the source data.

      Users can directly input the dimension members in the dim_mem, or input any existing mapping command in the dim_mem, such as *newcol, *col or *newcol(cash)+*col(1).

      For further details check out the following blog:

      In the data integration presentation, one of the examples showed units in the currency dimension along with LC.  On the surface, there do not appear to be any negative impact on business rules or other functionality. 

      A couple of questions come to mind...
      (1) Did I read the slide correctly?
      (2) What risks, if any, are there are on using this approach?

      Loading the data to Period 12 was mentioned as a solution.  I've used this approach but believe using Period 13+ members in the TIME dimension will be easier for end users to understand.

      Are there limitations in the business rules or other BPC functionality that limits this?

      Thanks!
      Hatt
