I'm working giving support to a HFM application and I need some advice, since I'm a little confused. I have 4 different chart of entities:
I was trying to lock the data of ComConsol in a grid when I realized that the status was CN. I run the consolidation and the status changed to OK. However, Legal, BGroups and Alternate changed their status to CN. When I run the consolidation for Legal, then ComConsol needs to be consolidated again.
I believe that it could be related to some shared members, but I'm not quite sure.
It sounds to me that you are running Consolidate All With Data or Consolidate All instead of Consolidate on the parent entity? Other options are, you force calculated a base entity or a rule executed that impact the status of one or more base entities.
If u can run the consolidation @ primary hierarchy first and then go for the consolidation of rest of the hierarchies so that u can't see any consolidation changes in primary hierarch after running the consolidation @ alternative hierarchies.
