Bottom Up Aggregation Using the avg() Function When an Override is Entered at a Higher Level (Doc ID 1636080.1)

Last updated on MARCH 08, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Demantra Demand Management - Version 7.3.1.4 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

On 7.3.1.4, Worksheet Series:

Take an editable Series that is doing avg() function in the Server expression. SALES_DATA is the update table for the Series.
At a higher level when you enter overrides, it disaggregates down to its lowest levels fine.
So the value seen for all children match with the number showing in the higher level where the update was made.

But, when you add a level higher than the level where the override was entered (from the same hierarchy) in that worksheet then the value for that higher level doesn't show the expected avg() entered for the overrides.

Example:
1) We have 2 item levels: Size and Grade, with Size being the lower level in the hierarchy.
2) For a specific Grade there are 2 Sizes: Small and Large.
3) Enter 200 for the Small Size and 237 for the Large Size.
4) Now when the worksheet layout is modified to only show the Grade level we would expect to see the output of the following calculation: (200+237)/2 = 218.5.

But the output seen is not as expected.
How is the avg() function calculation performed?
