As explained in Enhancement node - Right hand panel, the formula used to generate AEP information are complex and use a variety of intermediary metrics. To help understand how AEP is generated, a **Display AEP Detail** button is available and can display these intermediary metrics and formula in a text file:

When clicked, the CAST Transaction Configuration Center will generate a text file and open it in your default text editor. This text file explains how the AEP values were calculated:

Below is an explanation of the abbreviations used in the text file:

** I.a TRANSACTIONAL FUNCTIONS**
