Value

The most important dimension is the Value dimension. It is the part of the product that drives the consolidation in HFM. When you really understand how the Value dimension works, you understand how HFM really does consolidations. It is critical for writing rules. It isn’t just how HFM brings the data together, but it tells you how the rules are working to move data up the entity structure to consolidate the data. The Value dimension is a system-generated, system-maintained dimension within HFM. You can’t modify it directly.

I say directly because the Value dimension has members based on currencies you add, and you can make some minor changes to default members.

The first thing you notice when you look at the Value dimension is that all of the currencies you add in the application are replicated there. All the currencies in the Value dimension are referenced by something called a triplet. A triplet is a grouping of an input member, an adjustment member, and a total. For example, if you had a USD currency you would see for that currency a USD, USD ADJ, and USD Total. You should see a triplet for every currency you have in the application.
