Cell Locking

Cell locking prevents the entry of data in fields that draw on multiple sources. For all planning reports, data entry is only possible when a single legal entity and the local currency are selected. 

Every account in the Sales Planning_measure dimension contains the PCalculation attribute, which defines the rule that is implemented on the element. When information is deposited in these attributes in the form of a B Rule, or the selected element is a C Element, cell locking is activated in the planning reports and data cannot be entered.

For example, in the screenshot below, the element Gross Revenue has information in PCalculation, so the option to write values in database will be denied in the planning report.
