Timst bug

Is this a bug?

On the code below run on 10.1.1 anything less than one minute adds a minute to the formatted output. That is, for 18 seconds below I get 00:01:18

Code: Select all

rough18Sec = (18/86400);
asciioutput('_test.txt', TIMST(rough18Sec, '\h:\m:\s', 0));

Flat TM1 web buttons

So a lot of things from the 80's have made a comeback but I just cant see silver 3d rectangular 3d buttons coming back into vogue anytime soon. To change the appearence you can change the TM1web css file below C:\Program Files\ibm\cognos\tm1_64\TM1Web\css\websheet.css add the following lines of code...

Re: Make lines between cells in Application web more distinc

This will affect the TM1 Applications framework in general, so all of your applications are changed automatically. And mores the pity as this...

I personally cant wait for the 80's style grey buttons come back in style. It's hip to be square action buttons.

Re: Dynamic Datasource Path

Guys, I could (I agree) just use a file in the development san storage area because (as you rightly say) once built the dummy file will never be referenced again. But (and it's a big one) whether the file is actually used or not the production process will still contain a reference to a file outsid...

Re: Comma in dimension element name causing problem in 9.5.2

Why not prefix it or just use employee id? You can always use an alais for the persons name. I've never liked using people's names as sometimes as most organisations have duplicates such as Wayne Kerr.

Have you tried taking out the space after the comma?.

Thanks a lot to everybody, of all the cases that we spoke about, mine was the one addressed by Tomok. You can see it in my quote. Also make sure you don't have any interdependent DBRW formulas. What I mean by that is you have a cell with a DBRW formula in it, and that cell is used as a dimension re...
