Re: Active Reports ver 2.0.9 - data misaligned

Hi, I have found that if the TM1RPTROW column order on the report does not follow the column order of the cube then it gets misaligned. Appears to be a bug in later releases. It should be noted that it does work ok on the web even if it doesn't work in excel. If you do need to work within excel then...

Re: Expand function with numbers

Hi Wim, I feel like you have pulled the 5 card trick here, in your first comment you reference nStart but never expand nStart but in your latest example you expand N both times. So the issue with your original problem has nothing to do with decimal places and expand does it? The problem is you cant ...

Re: Calculate minutes

Hi Orlando, Well, assuming you want to calculate the difference in minutes between 2 dates, then TIMVL isn't going to help you as far as I can see. Though maybe you could have put something like that in the topic title :D Here is how I would approach it: I would break the value down between the date...

Re: STR(Num, len, dec) with only one argument

Whilst you are making the RFE could you suggest they change the function name to something a bit longer as I don't have enough typing to do? lol! I have always wanted some function aliases in TM1 but was too afraid to ask! So NumberToString could be NTS for example. That would have saved soooo much...

Re: check if a parameter value is numeric

Hi,

I would think Tomok's suggestion is the way to go, but

Cant you just do the check in Excel, so have a formula along the lines of:

=IFERROR(A1*1,0)
=IF(A2=0,0,1)

Then have a parameter in the TI called pIsNumeric (1 or 0) and have the action button point at this cell?

Mark

Re: Dynamic Picklist

Hi, Assuming you literally only want to rule where a person is in opport1 they should not appear in opport2 picklist, then I got this to work as follows: Create a clone of your existing cube but with the person dimension and a measure dimension added, this measure will hold a 1 or 0. This cloned cub...

Re: PAW error: VIEW_CONVERSION_FAILED

Hi, I have seen this before and it was security related.

The remedy was to take the server offline and delete the }DimensionSecurity cube. regards, ...

Re: MDX - weight of a member

Hi,

The answer I got on this was:

"the weight expression seems more of an internal mechanism, not really built for something like filtering. We (IBM) would recommend filtering using another method"

Re: Action Buttons - Navigation in Perspectives v Web

Hi,

I have used DBRW's as references to reports in Action buttons.

Can you provide exactly what values you are holding in the cubes the DBRW's are referncing and
how exactly you are referencing the DBRW's in the action button?

regards,

Re: Action Button Properties window (dialog box)

Hi,

Don't have access to TM1 at the moment but if memory serves me right, in this situation I just press the enter key on the keyboard when I have finished updating the action button. This seems to work ok

Looking at the error I would check your spacing, for example you have sum([DMBTR]) as AmountFROM [SAP_Eksport].[dbo].[VE_Z_XTRACT_DOCUMENTS] ZapisySapLEFT There needs to be a space between Amount and From and ZapisySap and Left There are other spacing issues so I would sort that out first regards, M...

Re: MDX FILTER and non-existent elements

Oh so this stops server crashes for invalid members, in that case a welcome improvement, given I have fallen foul of this when I first started out on TM1!
