Pesky Implied Share

I just had a support issue where the user kept inputting a value into a stored member, and after aggregating the web form the value disappears.  Again, STORED MEMBER.  So, we take a look at the member in the outline, and it falls under the parent, which his set to LABEL ONLY.  The sad little stored member has fallen victim to IMPLIED SHARE.

Implied Share happens in one of 3 instances:

  1. The parent has only one child
  2. The parent has only one child that consolidates to the parent
  3. The parent is of data type “Label Only”

We changed the parent member to Dynamic Calc (since it was an account rollup), and the issue was resolved!
