I'm Using Calc Manager to write my consolidation rules in version 220.127.116.11.300. I have "PostElims" and "PreElims" as member of Custom Dimension. This is to post the Elim numbers in the [Elimination] Value dimension and "postElims" custom dimension bucket. When i wrote the rule and try validating it, It says the "PostElims" Member is invalid and doesn't exist in the custom Dimension. But As i'm using the Calc Mgr, I used the Member Selector to fill the Formula. So in the Member selector if i can pick the member "PostElims", How can it be invalid when i Validate?
Have you tried using custom dimension name instead of Custom3 or Custom4? Example :
Your custom 4 dimension named as Product.
Instead of using C4#Chair, try to use Product#Chair
I believe this is a new change for 18.104.22.168 on how to call your custom dimension inside rule files
Really Good to see a reply on a Holiday season. Thanks "Wishingtothemoon".
By going with your example on Products in Custom Dimension.
Dimension Name: Products
Dimension Alias : Product (As name and Alias can't be same)
Short Name : Pdt
When i use the member selector in the Calc Manager, The system uses pdt#(custom member) to refer it. I think the Short name introducted by Oracle is using it in the Rules. So when i choose the Custom member in the product say, pdt#smartphones., i can select it in the member selector to write the rules and save it. But when i Validate the rules it says the custom member Smartphone doesn't exist and not found in the dimension Products.
Did anyone encounter this behaviour in Calc Manager? Please share your experience. Thanks Again.
Thanks for your reply. The Member "PreElims" is not a base member, And it is used as a Source (using OpenDataUnit) for the Elimination. But the Member "PostElims" which is my target is a Base member with member attribute "Is Calculated" selected, So user can't input data in the PostElims Bucket.
When I try to find if other members of the "DataType" dimension is working, it is not. When i use other Custom dimension and validate the rule, the rule is perfectly fine. But when i use the "DataType" Dimension, It ends up with the error.
