Re: Performance of Architect Vs Perspectives

The difference is only material because your model is taking so long to calc. Without knowing your model in detail it's difficult to be specific, but the speed issue will be down to the way the model is designed - as Win and Tomok have pointed out. I don't think your speed will improve by moving to ...

Re: reports using active form

Yes, firstly you should read the documentation that comes with TM1, such as this. This is really too general a question for this forum and you should also read the guidelines on requests for assistance.

Re: Automatic mail triggering

This isn't really a TM1 specific question: what you're basically trying to do is be notified if a service stops. I did an internet search and seconds later came up with this this . To do it yourself and for free you'll need to be comfortable with VBS/Powershell or somesuch and put it together someth...

Re: Automatic mail triggering

Many many options, and google is your friend on this. We use a combination of Pulse for TM1 which runs on the TM1 server (and does many other things), and Pulseway to monitor the servers and the services on it (including Pulse for TM1). There are ways to do it for free, but Pulseway in particular is...

Re: Retrieving Data using Alternate Hierarchy

A slight hijack, but my concern is that DBR/DBRW/Custom Reports won't ever support alternate hierarchies. I appreciate the need to keep these functions backward compatible, but if we ever want to use alternate hierarchies in PAX in Custom Reports then we would need a new function (DBRH anyone?) for ...

Re: Connecting with Integrated Login using VBA

Are you on IntegratedSecurityMode = 2? If so, this will work

Code: Select all

Application.Run("N_CONNECT", "YourServer", "","")
Otherwise look at this thread http://www.tm1forum.com/viewtopic.php?t=765

Hi Martin,

While I'm here, thanks for the work and effort you put into this.

I've been doing some testing on PAX, on 2013 and 2010, and I don't get this behaviour. You may want to get the latest Fix Central versions of PAx and PAW: https://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview. ... wg24043782

Re: Planning Analytics for Excel 2.0.1 - Excel sheet protection breaks SUBNM

For anyone interested this is a bug, and a fix is in the pipeline - PI83093 DROPDOWN ARROW FOR A SUBNM CELL DISAPPEARS WHEN SHEET ISPROTECTED (EVEN IF CELL IS SET TO BE UNLOCKED) - although no date for it yet.

Planning Analytics for Excel 2.0.1 - Excel sheet protection breaks SUBNM

Protecting a sheet in Excel and then unprotecting a cell in the sheet that has a (vanilla) SUBNM formula appears to break the SUBNM formula - I can pick a new element from the set editor, but the cell drop down doesn't appear and the SUBNM cell is not updated with the new element when it's selected ...

Re: Error accessing set editor from PAx

Well, I've fixed it, but not cured it. I had the http port set to 8080 on the PAW start.bat rather than 80 as there was something else on 80. I've got rid of the something else and rebuilt PAW using port 80 and it now works. Thanks for the help though, Steve.

It doesn't look like that's it - IE11 is installed, and I've even made it default now. I still get the same result.

Error accessing set editor from PAx

Anyone else come across this? Everything else seems to be working OK. This is accessing GO_New_Stores, so should be fairly standard.

Re: TM1 cube cannot accept 0 (zero)

The short answer is yes, TM1 can "move" a 0 from one cube to another without using a zero out function. We really need more detail of what you're doing and how you're doing it to provide any assistance. It would be useful if you could read the forum guidelines and put your question with them in mind.

Re: TM1 cube cannot accept 0 (zero)

It's difficult to be sure without more specifics, but it's possible that in your scenario 3 the view used has zero suppression turned on, in which case the behavior is as expected. Normally the best option is to zero out the receiving cube, or relevant portion thereof, and then do the move/copy, but...

Re: Calculate Time taken for a TM1 server between start and be ready

Powershell is your friend here: start the TM1 service using a powershell script which writes a time-stamp to a file, then performs a start-service on your tm1server. Once the server is up read the file with the time-stamp into TM1 as part of the startup chore as outlined by Tom and you have your ans...
