Essbase @MDSHIFT

Shifts a series of data values across multiple dimension ranges.

Syntax

@MDSHIFT (mbrName, shiftCnt1, dimName1, [range1|(range1)], . . . shiftCntX, dimNameX, [rangeX|(rangeX)])
Parameter Description
mbrName Any valid single member name or member combination, or a function that
returns a single member or member combination, from which the values are to
be shifted.
shiftCnt1…shiftCntX Integer that defines the number of member positions to shift.
dimName1, . . . dimNameX Defines the dimension names in which the shift is to occur.
range1|(range1) . . . rangeX|(rangeX) Optional. A valid member name, a comma-delimited list of member names,
member set functions, and range functions. If rangeList is
not specified, Essbase uses the level 0 members from
the dimension specified with the dimName parameter.
If the range list is comma delimited, then the list must be enclosed in parentheses.

Example

The Budget figures for Ending Inventory need to be calculated by taking
Prior Year->Opening Inventory results as a starting point:

                                  Jan   Feb   Mar
                                  ===   ===   ===
Prior Year   Opening Inventory    110   120   130  . .
Budget       Ending Inventory     N/A   N/A   N/A . .

The following calculation script assumes that the Scenario dimension
is as follows:

Scenario
       Prior Year
       Budget
FIX (Budget)
"Ending Inventory" = @MDSHIFT("Opening Inventory", 1, Year, , -1, Scenario,);
ENDFIX

In this example, range1 is not specified,
so Essbase defaults to the level 0 members of the Year
dimension, which was specified as the dimName1 parameter.
Since range2 is also not specified, Essbase defaults to the level 0 members of the Scenario dimension,
which was specified as the dimName2 parameter.
This example produces the following result:

                                 Jan      Feb     Mar
                                 ===      ===     ===
Prior Year  Opening Inventory    110      120     130 . .
Budget      Ending Inventory     120      130     140 . .
