    There is a lot of functionality that versions bring, but there are also some limitations (mostly due to the block structure, which I will explain later):

    • You cannot set versions as a format for line items.
    • Linked to the above, you cannot use LOOKUP or SUM when referencing a version.
    • Similarly, you cannot SUM out of a module by version (as per time, due to the block constructs).
    • You cannot create version subsets.
    • Versions are structural as so cannot be deleted in development models without affecting production models (as part of ALM). This can potentially lead to larger than desired development models.
