Re: TM1 Perspectives - Prompt when closing Excel?

If I remember rightly, if you changed a view it should prompt you to see if you want to change the view? Beyond that I'm not sure if you can as it is an Excel add-in after all,

Jim.

I guess that Tom is confusing holds and locks.

When you say holds, do you means locks?

Re: Work-around for granting access when there is no admin??

If you're in the "admin" group (not a group with admin access) you get admin access by default.

Re: Display the current date

Firstly I hope you created it as an alias? Also remember they have to be unique, so if you display the current date make sure it's for either one element or it's a post fix. Lastly you need to create a rule on the control cube. Then use the Today() function. If you check the reference guide there ar...

Re: Outsourcing options

If it ends up offshore, one thing I would do is keep an eye on the forum. If they're having trouble with some of your requirements they'll probably end up here. So don't tell them your a member of the forum.

If (more likely when) case sensitivity is introduced I think it is a very safe bet that this will be controlled by a tm1s.cfg parameter where the default value is set to false for backwards compatibility.
We all know how well these things have worked in the past......

I think they mean PA is case sensitive for TM1 objects like cubes, dimensions, elements, attributes, etc. Not variable names inside a TI process.
Oh yah, copy and paste ahoy!!

Re: Feeders: rule based on constant values

Normally you've got 3 options with this: 1) Don't feed it 2) Feed with with an element constant (an example that's not related may be price) 3) Variable feed from the constant, which may be an issue if your variable is constantly changing You may want to also look at making the element a consolidati...

Something to consider is commitment... Now then fellas don't all run away!!! I mean when TM1 commits changes. Unless you're using the add direct formula the elements aren't committed to the dimension until once the meta tab has been completed. As others have others have stated attributes are simply ...

Re: Service Strange Behaviour

Finally found out. It was nothing to do with whether or not the processes were loaded in to memory. They were. The issue was to do with CAM and security. We think the groups dimension had become corrupted. When logging in we were not assigned to any group so we could not see anything or save anythin...

Re: Service Strange Behaviour

I don't really get what you mean. When an instance starts the }chores, }cubes, }dimensions, }processes (& }applicationentries) dimensions are all updated based on the file contents of the data directory. So when you say When the service starts no processes are being loaded in to memory yet the }pro...

Guys, I've never seen this before. I have a simple service with 2 cubes and a bunch of processes. When the service starts no processes are being loaded in to memory yet the }processes dimension has been updated. When I try to update the a rule for one of the cubes it fails to save rule.

Re: Data Saves not completing and retriggering 10.2.2 FP4

You really should NEVER have any other processes running when a Save Data is taking place, it's just going to cause problems. Turning on PI is not going to help because Save Data saves the entire cube at once, not just the area you changed. You need to go back and create a schedule that ensures tha...

Sounds like you're over feeding to me. But it could be something else, you've not given much to go off. Do you see any spikes in memory when you attempt the load?

Re: Replace hard coded rule values with cube value

When your lookup changes you'll need to re-compile your feeders. Unless something has changed that's always been the case variable feeders.
