Hi experts,

I have got a doubt regarding the YTD, QTD and periodic. what to use when.

When User will be planning using the input schedule, He will select as "Periodic".

For the Annual Financial statement, Measure need to select YTD, but when user do that, system rejects.

Could you explain which measure to use when and how??

thanks

Hi,

There is no thumb rule on which measure to use while reporting. It all depends on the way you want to see the data. If you want to see periodic data, then the measure should be periodic. If you want to see year to date data, then the measure should be YTD.

As, you said, when you change the measure to YTD, the system rejects. Can you explain this please. What is exactly happening?

Hi Nilanjan,

Just modification in the question..

If we create Periodic=Yes ( YTDInput = No) application.

Than Data, we are uploading should be in Periodic format also.

Can we upload YTD format data also in that case...or the data need to be converted in periodic format first..??

Thanks

Hi,

If the data in your source is in YTD format, then you need to convert that data. Otherwise BPC will consider them as periodic values and your data will be wrong.

Hope this helps.
