Native Version to Fake Version
I was asked to provide a solution to one of the problems that one of our community member (@Naveed - not sure if this is your right handle) is facing. I couldn't arrive at the solution but was able to provide him the workaround. Let me know your thoughts on this
He is using Native Versions in his planning model and there are 6 of these. And now he wants to switch it to Fake Versions because he has his reservations on continuing with this approach.(Model Open time is gradually increasing with the increasing number of versions, he has formula written in some of the versions etc)
Long Term Goal: How can he switch to Fake Versions effectively & efficiently- without blowing up the size up due to redundancy, also by taking efforts into consideration
Short Term Requirement: He wants to do Fake Version comparison Analysis by pulling the data from Modules which have got Native Versions in their dimensions.
Note: Keeping it Static isn't an option. E.g., Budget Vs Forecast in one line item, Actual Vs Budget in Second line item. It should be dynamic where users can do comparison as per the selections that they make.
It would have been easier if we had Version Formatted Line item and Looking up on these line items would have come handy but since it is not available LOOKUP can't be used. SUM also can't be used with the help of version mapping module because it pulls only current version and not every other version.
