Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

On : Advanced Planning Command Center 12.2.3 version

ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
---------------
Customer is on EBS 12.2.3 and has the correct version of the rpd and webcat files:

$Header: mscrpd.zip 120.150.12020000.3 2013/08/07 08:21 wexia ship $
$Header: mscwebcat.zip 120.203.12020000.3 2013/07/31 09:26 lreinhar ship $

MSC_DEMANDS_F_1016 and MSC_DEMANDS_F_1019 in the Physical Layer were removed in VCP 12.1.3.9.1 per the following note:

APCC Dashboards Not Showing Data Even Though the Corresponding APCC Fact Tables Contain Data (Doc ID 1943647.1)

According to Development, the changes were forward ported to 12.2.4, but not 12.2.3.

Customer does not know what objects needs to disabled to make the rpd work properly.

For example, when they create a report:
1. How does the BI Server know which LTS to choose ( msc_supplies_f, msc_supplies_f_42, msc_supplies_f_1016,msc_supplies_f_1019).
2. This in turn relates to how many category sets they should have, and how should they populate the profile option "MSC:APCC CATEGORY SET"?

When they create a report, they are unsure how to ensure that the correct LTS is chosen.

STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
(1) Open the RPD-> Click on tools-> variables->see the static repository variable that captures the revision number.
