2460554 - Error During Key Figure Creation: MKFC Contains Incosistent Formula


You are creating a key figure based on another customized key figure, however when you try to move on to step 2 or step 3 in the key figure wizard, you get the error messages

MKFC ABC contains inconsistent formula

Key Figure XYZ is invalid

You have checked your other key figure, however there are no inconsistencies.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Log on to HTML5.
  2. Go to the Business Analytics work center, view Design Key Figures.
  3. Click on New.
  4. In step 2, maintain the key figure name, the data source and the key figure type. If it is restricted, select your key figure to be restricted. If it is calculated, click on Next and maintain the formula.
  5. Click on Next.

This will result in the error (in step 1 for restricted key figure, or in step 2 for calculated ones).


There is currently an issue in the key figure creation on the HTML5 UI.


A correction for this issue is in progress, unfortunately we cannot estimate yet in which release it will be implemented. In the meantime, please use the Silverlight UI to create your key figure.
