How to format the 'total' rows in IBP

Hi All,

In IBP Excel Add-In (latest version 1711) I tried to format the rows containing the totals and would like to ask politely for your help/suggestions.

Can anyone advise me how to do this? I tried with the EPM Formatting Sheet but did not find a way to make it work. Below is a screenshot. The red marked row is the one i want to format. This should be a formatting in the template, available to all users using the template. (no 'local' solution, no VBA code)

Thanks for your help.

Greetings,

Daniel

Hi Daniel,

Please share the EPM Formatting sheet and the dimension (Member) you tried to format. Also what kind of formatting information would help to analyse the reason for not picking up the formats.

Hi All,

I don't know which Dimension/Member I should use to address the different Total Rows on different levels. I tried to apply a Background Colour for the different Total Rows and change the background color differently. Normally, I would open the Formatting Sheet, click on 'Add Member/Properts', change to 'specific Selection' and select the Total Member. Then apply Formatting via the Table Colums 'Data' and 'Use'.

An Example, this is what i want to accomplish in the end:

But how to adress different Total-Levels (here: Prod Des-ShipTo-Loc-ShipFrom is one level and Loc-ShipFrom is another level).

Again, Thanks for your help.

Regards,

Daniel

In EPM there is an option for hierarchy setup. You have to check hierarchy level formatting and then color Data cell under different levels in the Rows section.

Other applications in EPM can identify the hierarchy but not in IBP.

So in IBP we are left with the option of VBA for coloring it.

Saying that doing it through VBA is very easy and I could achieve it.

Hello Daniel,

In release 1711, there's a new functionality called Totals in the Planning View. You can add totals directly to the Attributes of the planning - see screenshots 'edit-planning-view.png' and 'planning-view.png'.

You may find additional information in our SAP Help Portal Totals in the Planning View and our Model Configuration Guide Global Configuration Parameters.

Hi Matheus,

Thanks for your reply.

The issue is not adding Totals, I already did this. The Totals in my screenshots are not added 'Manually'. They were added as you describe.

I want to format them on different planning levels (level xy green, level abz yellow, ...) as described above, preferedly with the help of the Formatting sheet.

Can you provide help on doing such a formatting of the different Total-Levels in different (f.ex.) background colours (see screenshot of my last answer)?

Or is this not possible with the standard functionality of the Excel Add-In?

Regards,

Daniel

Hi all,

Someone found a solution for my problem?

Any suggestions appreciated, besides programming VBA 😉

(Formatting different levels of the totals in different colors?)

Thanks and have a nice day.
