Flow types in Planning Business Modeler

A flow type is the value of the property FlowTypeMemberID. Each FlowTypeMemberID has a collection of associated properties that specify how the flow is processed by predefined consolidation and currency rules. You cannot change the flow properties individually. To change the flow properties, you must change the FlowTypeMemberID.

Note:  To use this property in a business rule calculation, you must explicitly reference it as FlowTypeMemberID. Do not substitute a different value such as "flow type".

The following list describes the properties that are associated with Flow type:

  • Consolidated

    If true, indicates that the flow will be included in system-defined consolidation calculations.

  • Converted

    If true, indicates that the flow will be included in system-defined currency conversions.

    Note:  If the Converted property of a flow type is False, the currency conversion process uses an exchange rate of 1 when it calculates the new value of a currency to preserve the value. That is, the currency conversion process uses a calculation that resembles the following line:

NewCurrencyValue = 1 * OldCurrencyValue

  • ReverseSign

    If true, indicates that Planning Business Modeler reverses the sign of a value when the value is displayed.

The following table shows the predefined values for FlowTypeMemberID and their associated properties.
