This problem can occur on any platform.
Oracle Enterprise Planning and Budgeting - Version: 11.5.10
OGL EPB Direct Integration
You cannot change the value of the Account / Line Item dimension attribute "Better / Worse Indicator (BETTER_FLAG)" for members that have been transferred from Oracle General Ledger (OGL). None of the attribute values are updatable for the OGL dimension members.
Navigation to attribute values:
- Go to the "Enterprise Performance Foundation Administrator" responsibility
- Go to "Configuration Rules" → "Dimension"
(Make sure the OGL Ledger is selected in "Application Preferences")
- Use the "Switch Dimension" box to select Account / Line Item and click "Go"
- Go to "Members" and search for a member
- Click on the member to view its attributes
You cannot change the attribute values.
The "Better / Worse Indicator" needs to be changed to resolve a signage issue in a controlled calculation -- Variance in EPB, Current period vs Prior Period -- in Oracle Enterprise Planning and Budgeting (EPB).
The System Profile Option "FEM: Signage Methodology" is set to "Absolute Value".
