3279567 - The advanced formula step generates data to the "#" member when the property value is blank before Q4 release but generates no data after Q4 in SAP Analytics Cloud for Planning (SAC)

Symptom

The following behavior occurs in SAP Analytics Cloud for Planning (SAC):

  • Your data action contains a calculation similar to below:
    MEMBERSET [d/D1] = ...
    MEMBERSET [d/D2] = BASEMEMBER(...)
    ...
    DATA([d/D3] = [d/D4].[p/P1], ...) = RESULTLOOKUP(...)
  • The P1 property value of the corresponding D4 dimension member is blank.
  • Before the Q4.2022 upgrade, this data action generates the data for the "#" (unassigned) member of the D3 dimension.
    After the Q4.2022 upgrade, this data action generates no data.

Environment

  • SAP Analytics Cloud (Enterprise) 2022.21 or higher

Cause

The current behavior is the designed behavior:

  • Properly value is blank: no data is generated on the target scope.
  • Properly value is "#": data is generated on the target scope with member "#".

The previous behavior is related with a BASEMEMBER function regression issue which was fixed on 2022.21.07 Patch.

Resolution

Set the property value to "#" if you want the data action to generate data with member "#".
