Re: Finding out which Views a Subset belongs to?

This post got me to thinking about private views. Since as far as I know private objects are ignored at startup and only read into memory when the user logs on then if deleting a public subset will the server throw an error if the subset is only referenced in a private view belonging to a user who ...

Re: Finding out which Views a Subset belongs to?

If using a built-in feature of Notepad++ or a simple one line command is too much like hard work, and you are feeling new school and fancy a REST: You can use javascript to loop over a list of cubes and return a list of those that use the dimension you are checking (which is only really necessary if...

Re: Action Buttons Resizing

Normally I would have expected the response to this to be along the lines of change the Placement property to 1 on the Active Form (I did notice Chewza said Active Report and not Active Form). So my question is, what am I missing here? Which given the responses above from the experts is clearly som...

Re: TSQL limitations in TI

You haven't said what you think it is that is causing the Preview to fail, but one example of where a Preview isn't going to work is if you have any TM1 generated values embedded in the SQL statement. When the data is retrieved for the Preview, TM1 doesn't execute the Prolog, so can't perform the su...

Re: Does TM1 10.2.2 support Excel 2016 ?

Product Compatibility Report looks fine to me.

This being an IBM website, to find the Excel 2016 compatibility you need to look at Note 4 in the Office section rather than look at all the other Excel versions listed under the Excel section.

Re: TM1 10.2.2 FP6

We still can't use temporary views as data source. Are you saying that you have tried them in FP6 and they don't work? Using temporary views as a datasource was fixed in one of the early FP4 IFs, so even if you didn't get that particular IF, it should have been an early enough fix to have been incl...

Re: TM1 10.2.2 FP6

Creating a view extract using ViewConstruct was already possible before FP6. Indeed it was, and that was what I was describing. If you still need to go this way after FP6, than this new feature does not bring much new in my opinion. [...] but the nice thing of the Skip Consolidations feature is tha...

Re: TM1 10.2.2 FP6

Regarding the MTQ usage I'm wondering how much benefit this bring if you have to include consolidated values in the view extract... If you set the view up so that you don't have any consolidations in the view definition to start with (why have them there if you are only going to skip them anyway?) ...

Re: TM1 cfg parameter - RulesOverwriteCellsOnLoad

That looks to be a similar issue, but we found it in 10.2.2 FP4 rather than 10.1 as that link shows, and the setting of PersistentFeeders didn't make any difference for us. I don't have the precise APAR number to hand, so it is possible that it is just a mis-identification on that ticket. If it is c...

Re: TM1 cfg parameter - RulesOverwriteCellsOnLoad

Be aware that there is an open issue with IBM where RulesOverwriteCellsOnLoad=F can cause feeders to not fire properly.

You may find that your faster startup and smaller memory footprint is because your model is not completely calculated.

Re: Number formatting on charts in Slices / Active Forms

The thing that you are overlooking is: The string passed to the NUMBR function must use. (period) as the decimal separator and , (comma) as the thousand separator. Any other decimal/thousand separators will cause incorrect results. Give this a go instead: StringToNumberEx(String, DecimalSep, Thousan...

Re: Intercube feeders with different level of detail

You don't say at what level you are storing your attribute. But assuming that the value 'F2016 P12' is repeated for each of '2016.48' to '2016.53' then you need to use this attribute in the feeder. Rules are happy to use C level elements as the source of data if the names match, but Feeders only wor...
