Posting topside journals

Posting topside journals to an entity by specifying fully qualified path

Content (required):

hi fcc warriors

With the goal of having eliminations calculated at an alternate parent, we created an alternate rollup in Entity dim. The elim entries got calculated as expected. But if I post a topside journal by specifying the fully qualified path of the entity, it still impacts the main instance of the entity. For e.g. if I post a topside journal to [AltParent].[Co100], post Consolidation it impacts [TotalCompany].[Co100].

Does anybody know how to use the fully qualified path to its full potential? is the trick in using another data input member? We have the workaround by creating a new entity in the alternate parent and direct all the topside journals into that, but I'm wondering if we could avoid creating a new entity.

Howdy, Stranger!
