Applies to:

Hyperion Profitability and Cost Management - Version 11.1.2.3.500 to 11.1.2.3.502 [Release 11.1]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

During the updating process of Hyperion Profitability and Cost Management (HPCM) calculation and reporting cubes, it is possible that a member changes position in a same dimension, due to changes of the hierarchy.
This is done in the Enterprise Performance Management Architect (EPMA) Dimension Library, in the deployed HPCM application, but it is not properly handled by the update option is used when delpoying the calculation and reporting database to Essbase.

Essbase member is created in the new location, but also maintained in its previous position therefor creating duplicate members.
