FAQ: Why is my not driver calculating in Actuals?

 

Question:

I have Line in a Custom Table that is calculated using a driver. When I am viewing the Custom Table in Plans, I can see the calculated values in Actuals. However, when I go to reporting and place the Custom Line in a Report displaying Actuals, it is blank. How do I fix this? 

Answer:

This behavior typically occurs when a Plan Driver or an Assumption is used in an Actuals period.

If you are using a Plan Driver in an Actuals period, delete the Plan Driver and replace it with a Global Driver. This will allow you to see both Actuals & Plan for the calculated Custom Line in reports. Global Drivers are preceded with [GL] when viewing them in Plans. 

If you are referencing an Assumption in your Global Driver in an Actuals period, replace the reference to the Assumption with a Constant value.
