Re: Active form rebuild removes MDX in subset

Hi, Like Tomok this makes little sense to me without more information. One thing I would point out is that I notice in your MDX you have a cube name, RC_UBZ_PC and a dimension with exactly the same name. I have seen where a cube and dimension have the same name it messes with MDX, however it usually...

Re: Active form hell

Hi Wim, No because you only have one year in each example. In your original rolling 13 you had 2 years in the columns. Try 2 years and put the value in a month that you don't include on the report, so have Y1 and Y2, Jan and Feb but put 5999 in March. That way you sort of replicate your original pro...

Re: Active form hell

Hi Wim, your original had only 13 rolling months, so if some there was data in any month in the same year but not part of the 13 months then you would see extra rows, even though the months were not in the columns. But in your new example you have 2 years worth of data and every month, and because t...

Re: Active form hell

Hi Wim, But it worked surely because those rows are the only rows to have values in any month in the years selected (i.e. 2020, 21 and 22)? the other rows disappear because they have no values in any of those months? Which is why your post 2 up just confused me and I didn't respond! This bit really ...

Re: Active form hell

Hi Wim, I am not aware this has ever worked differently, though happy to be corrected. So not sure if I would say you have been lucky, more possibly you have not had a form set up which exposes this limitation? But as I said if you create your view in the cube viewer and supress zero rows you would ...

Re: Active form hell

Hi Wim, Not sure I follow you, the 24 column workaround does not involve deleting any columns. That workaround basically throws the 13 rolling period out of the window and settles for 24 columns each and every time. Because what you are trying to do can only, as far as I know, be achieved by followi...

Re: Active form hell

Hi Wim, Tomok is correct of course. One dimension would solve this. Or forgetting 13 periods and settling for any given 2 years, possibly conditional formatting the columns you want to focus on. I.e. some other workaround. The reason you are seeing Product 1,2 and 3 must be because there is a value ...

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
