Use

You can use these functions to obtain a clearer overview of the data in the graphic view and to change the data.

Prerequisites

You have loaded data for a selection.

You are in the graphic view.

Features

Hide a Curve

With this function you select a curve and then hide it by choosing the This graphic is explained in the accompanying text icon with the quick info Show/hide curves. You can then select a curve to display again by choosing the icon once more. You can use this function to improve your overview of the data, especially when working in a drilldown view where several curves may exist.

Note

These settings are not saved with the planning book. This means that the hidden curves reappear after you save your data. If you want to hide a key figure permanently, use the  Key figure selection function (This graphic is explained in the accompanying text icon in the workspace toolbar or in the user settings).

Connect two point on a curve

You can select two points on a curve that are not adjacent and join them with a straight line. The system overwrites any points with the interpolated values. You select the curve, click on the first point, choose the This graphic is explained in the accompanying text icon with the quick info Select point (choose the This graphic is explained in the accompanying text icon with the quick info Deselect All to deselect), click on the second point and choose the This graphic is explained in the accompanying text icon with the quick info Select point. You now choose the This graphic is explained in the accompanying text icon with the quick info Connect Selected Points. The system connects the two points with a straight line. It overwrites any points in between with the interpolated value.

Draw trend line

You can select two points as described above. When you choose the This graphic is explained in the accompanying text icon with the quick info Create trend line and choose Add trend line, the system takes the values of these points and all points between into account and calculates the trend line using linear regression. You can use business add-in (BAdI) /SAPAPO/SDP_FCSTCURV to fit the curve to other functions. After you have created the trend line, you can replace the curve with the trend line, by choosing This graphic is explained in the accompanying text icon with the quick info Create trend line and then choosing Transfer trend line. Similarly you can discard the trend line by choosing Discard trend line from this last menu.

Note

It is only possible to have one trend line in a graphic at any one time.

Smooth the effects of changing a point in the graphic

If you activate this function and change a point in the graphic, the system smoothes the surrounding points.

This graphic is explained in the accompanying text

This is done using exponential smoothing as in forecasting.

In this case yi always the value that has been changed.

You choose the This graphic is explained in the accompanying text icon with the quick info Activate/deactivate smoothing to activate the function and to set the smoothing factor.

You cannot save these settings.

Whenever these functions change values of existing data, the system always takes the read-only status of key figures into account. This means that if you have set a key figure to read-only, the values are not changed.
