My suggestion would be to use RunTI.exe which is included with 10.1 The solution would be to segregate the VALIDATION of the parameters for clearing data in the reporting cube and loading of new data from the actual EXECUTION. ...

Running a TI only if the data has changed

Hi all. I am on v10.1... Apologies for the long e-mail. If you haven't got time to read it all skip to the question right at the bottom! If you have got time you might be able to point out if I'm asking the wrong question - like a design fault perhaps. Setting the scene: I have 2 cubes - an input cu...

Re: Referencing text box in parameter of TI/Action Button

Hi Lotsaram,

thanks for your reply. That makes perfect sense. I'll stick with the cell/named range for the commentary input.

Cheers

Re: C level rule to calculate average

No it's not. There must be some other reason. A numeric attribute is held in the attribute cube as if it were a string. You can try using it in a rule in the attribute cube to check this. This means that a numeric attribute value can be held against a consolidated item of the corresponding dimensio...
