Re: What are TM1 Rules Capabilities?

Indeed, rules are like Excel formulas, to calculate certain areas in a cube in a dynamic way (i.e. calculation on the fly with every refresh).

Re: Enhancing Logic

Hello, The length or number of statements is not so important. You can condense the notation by omitting the month but using an attribute to hold the previous month (and also one to hold the next month in order to feed the rule). Use DB() to refer to the previous month's value based on the attribute...

Re: Change in Element Name of a frequently used Dimension

One question i had is after Swapping the Alias with the Initial name, suppose we do not delete the Alias(which will now contain the Initial Element Name). Will this impact the existing Cubes Data/Rules/TI processes/Worksheets in a negative way i.e will they break them ? Or they will work as before ...

hi, I am adding to dimension A , but I am just appending dimension b to dimension A. But dimension B can change any time and that needs to be reflected on DImension A on daily basis. So I have to unwind Dim B elements in Dim A daily and then readd dim B elements to dim A . so to append Dim B to Dim...

Re: Anyway to prevent Files to Accidentally DBRW ?

Jean, DBRW formulas on their own will not write data to a cube. Not in manual calc mode, not in automatic calc mode. So it has to be the case that you or the user enters a value over a DBRW. Or do you use a DBS function ? A DBRW formula will only show what is currently in the cube, if you do not ent...

PAW questions

Hello all, We can create a process in PAW, and the editor shows coloured functions, arguments to functions, and more of that. However, where can I indicate the data source of the process, like a subset or a text file for example ? When a process creates a dimension, it seems that a Refresh of the ob...

Re: Adjusting font size of action buttons with VBA

Hi there,

I ran accross the very same issue. Sometimes it works when you save, close and open the sheet, but it's not a guarantee.
So I decided to do it manually rather than automated.

Re: Is TM1 dimension index important?

One area where the the index order is important, is when you expand a consolidation. Then TM1 will show the immediate children based on the index. One might want to change the index when this is important. For example, Total Year has 12 children as the months. Then you don't want to have a random li...

So simply, will installing 32 bit Perspectives on 64 bit windows environment work?
Sure, no problem at all.
The bitness of Perspectives should match the bitness of Excel.
A 32 bits client on a 64 bits OS is perfectly fine.
