## Re: L3 Percentage calculation Not Matching

I believe your formula of

PY sales by country and prod family is wrong , since you are referring to forecast data , the value should be actual PY sales by country and prod family i,e PY

i have referred PY sales numbers

then this ratio aggregated by country and prod family should be 1 since basically ratio is of account sale by country and prod family associated with that account

hope this helps

## Re: L3 Percentage calculation Not Matching

Not sure I see the calculation breakdown but you do have a lot of subsidiary views that could be the cause. Generally we only use subsidiary views when we need them for filtering (exports and reports). For planning, it's usually better to rely on system modules that carry the mapping. In this way we calculate the value once and refer to it often from one place. This also avoids issues with synchronizing calculations since the calculation is only coming from one place.

@JaredDolich
Those subsidiary views are referring to system modules only. Just making Time Scale to None as it was an unnecessary dimension.
Do you think of any other reason for those percentages to be correct as per the Level 2 Requirements?
