Applies to:

Hyperion Financial Management - Version: and later   [Release: 11.1 and later ]
Hyperion Planning - Version: and later    [Release: 11.1 and later]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When attempting to add a member with a leading _ (underscore), EPMA will not allow the member name.

The following error message is displayed

Invalid member name: '_XXX'.  Member names must start with a letter or a number, and can contain only letters, numbers, underscores, and it cannot be any of the naming restrictions outlined in the administration guide.



Prior to install SP500 on for EPM, you could add members with leading _ (underscores).
