I want to use the XFMemberProperty in a cube view to call the number of no input periods in a scenario. This isn't returning a number though or anything. I get an error.
XFMemberProperty(DimType=Scenario, Member=|WFScenario|, Property=NumberOfNoInputPeriodsPerWorkflowUnit))
Has anyone had success with this? I am not sure the property name to use here, what I have is a guess; variants of this didn't work either.
Perhaps there is an easier way to get the last no input month into the time filter? I want two columns, on would be the actuals YTD and include the T#YYYYM[number of no input periods], the second would use the same time filter but use the rest of periods in year time expansion.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I stumbled across your post as I'm trying to do something similar - create a cube view for Forecast, where the YTD columns are the no input periods for Actuals, and the future months are inputs.
I was just testing around to try and bind the month to a scenario. I don't have an answer for the property for the No Input Period, but an alternative which I've just tested is using the Text1 field. In my example for my FCT 1+11, I have 1 no input period - so I have put "1" also in Text1.
This is the line I am using in the column member filter:
T#|WFYear|MXFMemberProperty(DimType=Scenario, Member=|WFScenario|, Property=Text1).AllPriorInYearInclusive
This shows columns for the YYYYM"Text1"
Let me know how you go.
That does it! Good idea looking to the way the rule calls these properties. I think I will use the Text1 idea you suggested though to better manage a January forecast with 0 no input periods. |WFYear|M0 would cause the CV to not render. For January's scenario I will add something different in Text1. Thanks!
