Enter Function in the Formulas assistant - BOFC 7.5


There is a function name ENTER in the 7.5 BFC version, in the formula assistant, and I want to know what it's doing.

I've tried to find the definition in the guideline and was not able to find it.

Tx for your help

here is what I found on SAP BFC Knowledge Base :


What is the use of the ENTER function in the formula wizard in the category builder of BOFC?


SAP BusinessObjects Financial Consolidation (BFC) 7.0

SAP BusinessObjects Financial Consolidation (BFC) 7.5

SAP BusinessObjects Financial Consolidation (BFC) 10.0


The Enter Function is a 'data entry' function.

For the enrichment of a category in sub-groups, this function can be found in the following situation:

TOP site has set a formula "{AC in%, FL = F99 =}} {FL = F00}

The user does not want, for the accounts that he own, to be calculated.

As the mechanics of Enrichment is to calculate an account, primarily a formula of the same site, the user overloads the formula in sub-groups to manage the items that belong to him.


ENTER (<data>)


ENTER (in% ) will force the current sections of the site entry.


This feature can be used alone and has only meaning in the formula of the category

Except the obvious syntax errors, I am not sure that this function is correctly implemented at the moment as after some tests I was not able to validate the category scenario (formula, after being accepted as valid, is disapearing from expression box !).
