I have never used this function for actually performing allocations from parent entities to base.
I have used the Sub Allocate () routine in the rules file to execute a rule to perform an extract of data from a current POV in HFM, using the writetofile rule.
But no, never for 'typical' allocations.
Thank you for the answer.
We have already started writing and the allocation rules for cost related accounts from parent entities to base entities and it seems quite handy for the users who used to extract the data into excel and then create journals in order to allocate the costs on the appropriate entities. Now, the users only have to trigger the allocation.
I created this topic in order to hear/collect the experiences of other users (like you) because based on my experience there are not a lot of hyperion applications that use the allocation.
