2616966 - Value doubled in formula that has a member in the formula which is a formula referring to another member in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC)


When two formula accounts are created of the type X=A*B, Y=C*D, and D is a formula of type "=A" then the value of Y will be twice the value of X

Reproducing the Issue

Create account dimension members such as follows:


A01 Gross Sales
A0101 Regular
A010102 Quantity
A010103 Unit Price 
A0102 Special
A010202 Quantity
A010203 Unit Price
A04 Actual Amount


A0101 - [A010102]*[A010103]

A0102 - [A010202]*[A010203]

A010203 - [A010103]

Note that formula for A0101 and A0102 are essentially the same, but that A010203 is taking the value of A010103 via formula. This seems to cause the doubling of the value for A0102 when compared to A0101


This issue was due to an issue in the binary for the EPM code


This issue has been resolved as of wave 2018.05
