Automatic spreadsheet update, Cam level security

Hi We recently "downgraded" from TM1 9.5.2 to cognos express with xcelerator 10.1. (due to cheaper pricing model) Part of the change was to move to Cam level security. Since moving to CAM level security we have lost the ability to use Excel VBA and "N_Connect" to TM1. I have searched various threads...

Re: Excel workbook slow "first time" open with TM1 9.5.2

Thank Oliver, you saved me I do not have any active forms however the spreadsheet may have had some in the past (later deleted) so the Name "TM1REBUILDOPTION" was still there and set to = 1 as you suspected. When I changed this to = 0 it fixed the issue. Additionally as there are no longer any activ...

Thanks Alan

You were right, when double checking the dimension secutity (via displaying control objects) I found read access only granted to the specific N elements in the dimension for her profiles. Now its fixed.

I agree with David, I recomend you consider building your GL Actual Balances cube from scratch rather than make it Feeder / rule based. Use a similar method you use to populate the GL Actual Transaction cube (I assume this is populated by TI) Alternatively ASCII export a predefined view of the 'GL t...

I may have over complicated things. Simpler solution would be to have two hierachies within you dimension structure one for "marketing" one for "all". Use your existing method (either TI or dimension speadsheet etc) you use for the "all" hierachy to create another one for marketing with different C ...

Re: Calculation Hierarchy on the fly ?

A simple solution for you may be have multiple dimension hierachies. You can have a marketing hierachy that shows A= 10 C = 10 Total Marketing = A+C = 20 This can be a seperate hierachy to your example A + B + C = Total 30 This can be done via TI if you want it produced automatically, 1: Flag the el...

Then I use "eliscomp" formula to determine if the version is a child of the 'stet versions' and stet out accordingly. This 1 rule is then repeated through all relevant cubes. For me t...

Re: DISTINCT Counts in TM1

A solution to this may be to build an alternative hierachy in the dimension that holds "subject" information. This alternative hierachy would consist of all 'N' elements and no 'C' elements. The alternative N elements would look like. Count_Class123 => Representing N element (Class123) in normal str...
