Dynamic formatting is defined in a dedicated sheet. A specific format (such as font, colour, or size) can be defined for levels of a hierarchy, types of members, odd/even rows or columns and page axis dimensions. We can define specific dynamic formatting in a template to apply to sheets or reports. Since the EPM Formatting Sheet is an excel sheet, it can be copied and changed to be applied to other reports, worksheets.
● A blank template sheet is provided with the add-in. You can specify the formatting you want in this sheet.
● For Planning and Consolidation connections, two pre-defined templates are provided. You can create additional template sheets by copying the default sheet as you would copy a standard Microsoft Office Excel worksheet. EPM Formatting Sheet can be used to format your Reports and Input Forms. There are various options for formatting.
You can do simple formatting, lock the cells that are not input ready, use the format by property using multiple criteria, or use a new cell-based formula delivered with the EPM add-in to override the data range formatting.
