    Title:
    Determining Weekly Distribution in a PBCS application
    Summary:
    How do I view the weekly distribution after a PBCS application has been created?
    Content:

    Looking at an application that has already been created, how do you determine what the weekly distribution is set to (even, 445, 454, etc)? I searched all over the PBCS application but I could not find anywhere that told me what it was set to.  I know that you can only set it during the initial creation of the application but I'm hoping there's a way to at least view the setting after the fact.

          Hi Scott,

           

          Oddly enough, I do not see the distribution column in the account dimension or in the member properties in my application.  However, I was able to find out that my application distribution is set to "even distribution".  To find this, I downloaded a snapshot of the application, drilled into the Properties folder in the Planning cube folder and looked at the Application Definition file.

          I wonder if the distribution appears in your application because it's not set to "even".

            Hello Jean-Luc,

            Even distribution is the default.

            The system only shows the spread pattern selection in the dimension editor when the default is not selected during setup.

              Thank you, Scott.

              I did not realize that.  I was also able to find it by downloading an artifact snapshot and going into the xml files.
