Essbase Overview

About Consolidations

Member consolidation Operators, determine how children roll up into their parents.

Consolidation define how the data are aggregate.

Consolidations are also known as aggregation rules.

Consolidation is the most frequently used calculations in Essbase.

By default, new members are given the addition (+) operator, meaning that members are added. For example, Jan, Feb, and Mar figures are added and the result stored in their parent, Qtr1.

Essbase does not use consolidation properties with members of attribute dimensions. See Calculating Attribute Data.

The consolidation operator defines the consolidation path.
