When using run time prompt limits in Calc Manager, performance is faster when using Essbase member list functions that are explicitly defined and accessed directly in Planning. The following member list functions are defined in Planning
Member list functions not defined in Planning can also be used. However, any member list function that is not defined in Planning accesses Essbase using the Essbase Outline API calls. The outline API calls are considerably slower since they require opening the outline in order to obtain the member list. Opening outlines, especially large outlines, can take a long time to complete.
