Saving empty values in input-ready query
When saving an empty cell in Analysis for Office (AfO), planning application user expects zero “0” value to be saved. However, under certain conditions, AfO is returning an old value when saving or recalculating. What can we avoid that?
Came out, that this is the default behavior for AfO versions from 2.3 SP2 and higher. For earlier versions, AfO will save zero “0” against empty planning data.
For versions until 2.4 this behavior is maintained in the file system of the client PC by setting a tag SetEmptiedDoubleDataCellsToValue0. This tag is stored in file %PROGRAMDATA%\Sap\Cof\Ao_app.config.
For versions of AfO starting from 2.5 and newer this setting can be also maintained directly in AfO’s Technical Configuration dialog menu.
Where can I find my AfO version?
You can find the AfO version in the main menu of AO for Excel: Left-upper corner - „Data“ – „Analysis“ – „About Analysis“
