my data is there, if i switch to budget i can see it and numbers, but for cost source as the metric i get o's
I took a look at your project. Let's see if I can get you pointed in the right direction.
Notice the the formulas for the OpEx Fixed and OpEx Variable in your cost model. They are referencing the CS Master Data.Expense Type column and Fixed Variable column.
So if we go into your Cost Source Master data and check the values in Expense Type and Fixed Variable... we can see that Fixed variable has a bunch of blanks in it.
This makes sense, the formulas are looking for values in the fixed variable column where none exist. So what you need to do is work back through the data sets to see why those values aren't there, and see if you can get them there.
Hopefully that gives you the bump you're looking for. If you need a little more, let us know.
nope need some help
I figured it out. Your Documentation on page 28 doesnt indicate that you need to scroll down to see the other fields and insure they are mapped correctly. After i deleted the tables and redid the steps (with correct mapping) it fixed the problem.
Glad you were able to figure it out. Sorry for the confusion. You didn't actually need to delete the data sets, you could have just redone the mapping but I'm happy it worked out.
ok, now i'm onto page 39, and my labor numbers only show up under budget and not cost. this is terribly frustrating.
I'm sorry for the difficulties you're having. I'm looking at your project now. I will get back to you as soon as I have an answer.
I keep redoing steps, but the docs don’t match my data. Cost and budget get inverted.
Sorry to be difficult. I’m up to page 39, and I’m stopping till I figure out if the issue is me or the docs.
There are also a couple lab assists in the next few days that you could attend. Here is a link with when the sessions are occurring for various time zones.

I've not been able to resolve the issue yet, and I'm about to go into a class. I will take a look at it again as soon as my class is over. We'll get you an answer as soon as we can.
I've unmarked it as correct so my colleagues can see that you have a new issue outstanding and we need to try to help with that.
Scott's project is in Internaltraining1> enablement05 if you happen to get to it before I do. I've got a class starting now but will take a look right after class.
I'm taking a look Debbie Hagen and Scott Shulman.
Scott, your cost sub pool field in the Acme Staff Allocations table is =Expense.this is creating unequal values in your allocation relationship. I'm looking for the page in the book to go back to for guidance, I believe we actually are asked to change the allocation relationship.
Thanks that would make sense. I don’t know that happened unless I mapped a field wrong? The sample data came as is so is the designation in the data?

Scott, I see the issue, the guide is mistaken in it's statement that you should have dollars "as in the screen shot" you shouldn't actually have dollars yet but you will as soon as you establish the relationship on the next few pages. So keep moving past page 39 and you should be ok with dollars in labor.
If you'd like an explanation about allocation relationships, there is a 4 minute video on allocations in the 03 Instructional Videos and Documents section of the backpack.
Or please join me in a Lab Assist tomorrow morning at 8AM ET or Debbie in a Lab Assist at 1PM ET. We will be happy to explain them in person.
I will do a bit more research and will request an update from the Instructional Designer of the course. What I don't understand is why you are the first person to have this issue since this course was launch on April 23rd. (We've had easily over 100 people go through the course) Regardless, I apologize for the confusion it has caused you.
Thanks so much !!
I really appreciate the assistance. I’ve also identified 1-2 little wordings that have caused confusion which I’ve noted and will share at the conclusion of this backpack.
Great. I'm still in discussion with the ID on this, we're not sure if this was a mistake or not. Still looking into it. Please do tell us any mistakes or points of confusion, we are always working to be as clear as possible.
Thanks. I don’t want to be the squeaky wheel. But I also can’t believe that I’m the only one struggling with some of these steps being out of sequence of missing, so I am wondering if it might be me too?
Coincidently I just ran into another on page 43. I’m going to join the lab assist at 1pm to see if it is me or the docs.
Glad to touch base just now and get you moving again. We'll figure out what's confusing or missing. Thanks for helping us improve!
Thanks. I’m going to join the lab today as I’m still having some minor confusions
I'm going to go ahead and mark this thread as assumed answered since I know that you were able to complete your project today. Hope that's ok.
