I am having trouble with a calculation that on the surface seems to be working until it is opened up in excel
The measure calculates the Actual Value as of last year and is as follows - ([Measures].[Act Val],ParallelPeriod([Time].[Year],1)
This works fine until I look at the totals within EXCEL 2002/200
1)If I choose to view a whole year then the total shows me a whole year. That is fine and as expected
2)If I choose part of the year the total shows me the whole year. This is wrong and am wondering if it is an Excel probem or my calculation? But here is the weird part -
