# PEL consolidation shares functions

Consolidation functions have special characteristics in PerformancePoint Expression Language (PEL). These functions are data-driven; that is, the precise operation of the function varies according to the dimensional data to which the function is applied. In particular, the Flow dimension affects the way each function is computed.

In addition, currency exchange is an important part of a consolidation operation. Before Planning Business Modeler performs any consolidation of entities, it first converts all currencies to a single exchange.

Consolidation functions can be used only in consolidation rules. If you use one of these functions in any other type of rule, it will cause a compiler error.

The following table describes the functions that are specific to consolidation rules.
