Response to Re: Data block creation issue

If you're on 11.1.2, it might help with the block creation.

Otherwise you're in the block creation game.

I see that you aren't restricting the FIX by Scenario, Version, Year (I am guessing that this is Planning under the covers hence the dimensions). You could definitely reduce the scope of what you're trying to bring across.

What I typically do with this requirement is make the target member stored. Yes it can be done in Planning with a HSP_NOLINK UDA. See:

You have a bunch of choices at that point re block creation. Search this board for examples of SET CREATEBLOCKONEQ and SET CREATENONMISSINGBLKS. Watch out for that second one -- it works but is extraordinarily expensive because it evaluates every potential block.
