We are always afraid of overriding our old data in the previous periods for Oracle Hyperion implementation, which are finalized and closed. The question is: what should be done to prevent accidental or deliberate changes to those data? The solution now is simple… learn how to lock the POV financial data.


1- Navigate to the data management tool.

2- Select the specific period mentioned to be locked.

3- Check the “Lock POV” box as per the below screenshot.

4- And the location will be locked for this period.

An error message will appear if the user tries to load data on the locked period.

To unlock this period again, only to select the locked POV and check the “Unlock POV” box.
