EPM Add-In: Inserting a member with "At Selected Cell" position in "EPM Insert Member" changes the Row Axis Dimension selection to static.

Symptom:

- When inserting a member via "EPM Insert member" function with "At a Selected Cell" option in the middle of the report (in the middle of the axis), changing the EPM Context from a member to another will result in the loss of the inserted content and the selection for row dimension members becomes static.


Reproducing the Issue:

- Open a report then click on "Refresh".
- Right click on a cell in the report and select "EPM" > "Insert Member".
- Select the members (base level) and use "At Selected Cell" in "Insert Position" and "Insert" in "Insert Method".
- Go to "EPM Context" and change the Dimension Members using "EPM - Member Selector".
- Click "OK".
- Click on "Refresh".


Cause:

Inserting members using "At Selected Cell" will change the report definition from dynamic to static selection based on the context. By design this is the EPM Add-In default behavior.


Resolution:

To Keep the dynamic report definition based on the context:

- Right click on a cell in the report and select "EPM" > "Insert Member".
- Select the members and use the option "After the last Axis Member" " in "Insert Position".
- Click "OK".
