Applies to:

Hyperion Strategic Finance - Version 11.1.2.3.505 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

In HSF v11.1.2.3 (and v11.1.2.4) there is no warning when breaking a worksheet link. The following steps can be taken to replicate the occurring problem:


1.) From the Strategic Planning ribbon in Excel, open the 'Sample.alc' file.
2.) Locate 'Product Sales' (v1000.00.010) and notice there is an already established worksheet link for the input cell in 2007 (cell D88).
3.) In the 'Product Sales' (v1000.00.010) input cell (D88) that contains the worksheet link, Enter a value of 300.
4.) Notice the cell is now shaded a darker tan but still has a Green boarder, indicating it still contains a worksheet link.
5.) From the Strategic Planning ribbon --> select the 'Calculate' drop down --> select 'Calculate' (or select 'Calc All Scenarios').
6.) Notice the output has now changed to 300 and the Green boarder is no longer there.
There is no warning telling the user they are breaking an established worksheet link and asking if they would like to proceed.

Changes

 Upgraded to 11.1.2.3 or higher.
