Flexible Planning: Saving Key Figures with Fixed Values

Description

In Releases 3.0 and 3.1 you can fix the value of a key figure in the planning table such that the value will not change when you change other values of the key figure at other planning levels. In Release 4.0 you can save these fixed values.

The prerequisites for using this function are as follows:

1. You create the information structure that you use for planning with the Planning possible indicator switched on. For any information structures that you created in Release 3.0 or 3.1, this indicator is set automatically; no manual action is necessary on your part.
2. In the information structure, you set the fixing indicator for the key figures with which you wish to use this function. Key figures in information structures that you created in Release 3.0 or 3.1 will NOT have this indicator set automatically; manual action is necessary on your part.
3. You set the Aggr. planning indicator in the planning type. Key figures values you fix in the planning table are then fixed on the database when you save the planning version. Any planning types that you created in Release 3.0 or 3.1 will have this indicator set automatically; no manual action is necessary on your part.

You can also fix the values of an entire line by double-clicking in its initial column.
