Currently, only full numbers are allowed on the Source Tab of the Allocation Control Tables.
Customer needs to post the percentage of 12.5% to the target. However, being unable to enter 12.5% on the Source tab, User needs to set the Source tab to 100% and the Target of 12.5% to the actual target and the remainder of 87.5% to a dummy company as the other 87.5% is to be posted to another target dimension.
Then for the other dimension posting, User will need to copy the data from the initial source to the dummy company and put that as the source for the other control tables so that the "Source posting" of 100% does not repeatedly post on the initial source.
Why is it useful?
|Who would benefit from this IDEA?||Customer will benefit as it will lessen the load on maintaining the dummy company.|
How should it work?
The Allocation Control Table Source tab should allow decimal postings.
So that in the above scenario, Users will not require to use the dummy company as a dumping ground.
If the Source tab allows the decimals for percentage, Customer will not require to "dump" the 87.5% on a dummy company.
|Priority Justification||Customer has a number of Source companies so currently they need to maintain the same number of dummy companies that are not actually part of the group|
|Customer Name||Ikano Pte Ltd|
