hi ,

i have these columns in the table and made this table as the FACT table and also using time intelligence filter in the PPS2010..

i have measures , sum (materials), sum (sales) and sum (material_%)

in the PPS dashboard design i have included this cube and all the measures.. and using an analytic chart..

i have developed separate graphs for each columns (material, sales, material_%)..

for the sales and materials there is no problem , when i use the time filter

in the material_% graph i used the time filter current quarter in months (showing three months ) shows the correct value..

when i use the current quarter filter (sum of all the 3 months) its showing 146% (83 +33 +30) --> for actual values

and 150 % ( 50+50+50) --> for target values

actually it showed show me 46% for actual and 50% for target ,

it should be sum of material in all the 3 months / sum of sales in all the 3 months

but its just calculating sum of material_% column of all the 3 months

time filter : year :: Halfyear ::quarter:: Month::Day

Month Year Material sales Material_% [ material / sales]

The material % should be setup as a calculation in the cube versus a physical column and measure reference. Right now it is simply setup with an aggregation type of sum and that is not what you want. Setup the calculation in the cube and do the division there and you will get the results that you are looking for. You can also setup a calculation in the KPI setup in PPS if needed as well, but having the logic centralized in the cube would be the route to go.
