Re: TM1 Perspective Vs Pax

Does anyone know if IBM planning to ditch/not support perspectives in the near future? I've heard many different rumors / pointers on this one. I would say however I believe that their long term goal is to get rid of perspectives. They tried with Performance Modeler but we all know how well that we...

Another Intel Backdoor CPU Problem

Guys,

According to Intel, they've found another back door is any processor made before 8th and 9th Gen. They recommend disabling hyper-threading. That'll help MTQ!!! Not!!

Re: Cognos Analytics 11.0.13

Really? You don't even bother to search the IBM web site? You just automatically post on here hoping someone else will do it for you? To be fair the IBM install instructions can be patchy at best. Not all I might add, but some for sure. Which is why some people create their own. So asking isn't a c...

Re: Cognos Express Trial - Can someone provide me the installation?

We don't tend to close threads. As time changes so (sometimes) do the things discussed. You never know in a few months IBM may start offering a trial. Then you'll be good to go. One thing I would mention is IBM lease cloud versions of PA. I don't the price of such things but it might worth looking i...

Re: Cognos Express Trial - Can someone provide me the installation?

If you're doing this as genuine evaluation to purchase the software, I'm sure some kind of temporary access can be granted to the cloud based software. You'd need to contact IBM and work on it with a sales executive. Keep in mind they won't do anything like this unless they feel this is genuine oppo...

Re: ODBO connection from 10.2.2 instance to PA instance

I'm not sure of the ins and outs of this (not sure if it's even possible) but my first inclination would be to overlay the ODBO drivers on the 10.2.2 machine with the ones from the PA machine, taking a backup first of course. I can only guess that the 10.2.2 drivers are not able resolve the connecti...

Thanks Tom, that's a nice suggestion. I have a system process for executing store procedures so that's something I could instead of building the code with the prolog,

ODBCOutput Failure

Guys, As far as I can tell (and experienced in the past) ODBCOutput does not return any kind of error code when executing a query. The IBM documentation only mentions the 255 character limit. I plan on writing a sub process to validate the DB after the query has executed but if there's a better way ...

Re: How to Edit TI Process without first Executing it?

Or even have the source as a flat file with correct number of fields in it. Then override. That way you can amend your file to match without executing a query at all. You can specify the query in the process.

Re: How to Edit TI Process without first Executing it?

Why not just point to an ODBC that doesn't exist. That way when the process opens the query fails. The using parameters or a lookup simply overwrite the ODBC data source. That doesn't involve any code as you should be including a lookup for the ODBC anyway to make deployment easier. With the above, ...

I have seen strange cases in the past with extended Ascii characters and try to stay away from there.
Which includes French accents like é, è, ê too. Not sure if this is still an issue nowadays, I am talking about some 5 years ago.
We're still on 10.2.2 so it may have been fixed since.
