Derived Dimensions Option Greyed Out on Financial Dimension Based on General Ledger > Fund

Posted on by 44
Hello -  I can't seem to get the derived dimension feature to be enabled for one of my financial dimensions. The financial dimension is not a custom dimension. The dimension is based upon Fund (menu navigation: General Ledger > Fund). Is there some kind of a limitation with derived dimensions with Fund codes? Below is the Fund code setup I am referring to.

    Yes, I looked at the table and noticed that the value of Save Data Per Company property is Yes.

    Hi Martin, Thank you! I am still new at D365 so I believe the table is as you point out, the LedgerFund table. Is there a sure-fire way to tell if an entity is company-specific? I will go back and continue to troubleshoot the advanced accounting rules to try and meet this need.

    If it's about LedgerFund table, it is company-specific. For that reason, Derived dimensions button is disabled in DimensionDetails.dimensionAttribute_active().

    Thank you, Kevin. I saw these posts and I don't understand neither the relevance nor the solution. My other entity-back dimensions do not have an issue with the "Derived dimensions" option being active for use. I am also not trying to use the legal entity override functionality. The Fund is not specific to any specific legal entity. There is no "Legal entity override" option on a fund setup. I must be missing something obvious but I'm just not seeing it.

    Hi,
    Similar issues have been raised before on the forum and solutions have been provided, you can check out this old thread: Solved: Derived Dimension function grayed out for entity-backed dimensions (dynamics.com)Only the dimension value can use the Legal entity overrides function, then the derived dimension can be enabled, otherwise it is disabled. Or you can refer to this official document: Financial dimensions - Finance | Dynamics 365 | Microsoft LearnThis article explains the various types of financial dimensions and how they're set up.
    Best regards,
    Kevin
