Re: Action Button

In design mode you can use the 'alt' key to align to rows and/or columns. Click on the sides or corners, press 'alt' and drag with the mouse. This would then lead to worksheets with many columns that are say, 1 column width apart, which you could use to align it how you want. Gives you greater contr...

Re: Explaining what TM1 is to non-techy people

audience plays a part...

I generally go with excel on steroids and also a blank canvas, as you can pretty much create what you want ;)

Re: EXECUTE PROCESS UNABLE TO KICK BATCH FILE FROM TI

Sounds like a security issue with your production domain account user.

had a similar issue on a 2008 enterprise server and the access for a service account. Security access fixed it.

yes there are workarounds but would be great if it was 'inbuilt'.

Re: Use Active Form but found duplicate Hierachy

Hi there, When you save you saved, did you first use the Active form option from the ribbon of "Rebuild Current Book", this will rebuild and redefine the ranges and formula for the Active form. Secondly, there is a hidden sheet called "AR01" which holds the row information, if the hierarchy had bec...

Re: AsciiOutput: Alternatives via TI

A text file is, by definition, text. There aren't strings and "values", just text characters which any program which reads the file can interpret as values or strings for internal storage. I presume you mean that you don't want quote marks around the values that are output. In that case, you just s...

Re: 9.5.2 - New Features and Issues

Someone mentioned that 9.5.2 supports Excel 2010. Is that the case? I couldn't see it in the release notes. I would try it but the last time I tried 2010 with TM1 9.5.1 we had to manually edit the registry to back it out. Yes. 2010 is supported now. 2010 on 32 bit. 64 bit wil be supported later. My...

Re: TM1 9.5.1 SAP Connector

Thanks for the replies.

Only reason we are investigating it is it is now free with 9.5.1. Otherwise we would stick with our flat file extracts. Hopefully it won't be too slow extracting the data we are after. Time will tell.

TM1 9.5.1 SAP Connector

Hi All, We are exploring using the SAP connector to extract data from SAP and SAP BW. Has anyone else gone through this process? If so, Was there much of a performance impact on the SAP side? Obviously depending on how much data getting pulled back will have an impact! :) What challenges on the syst...

Put an attribute against your measure dimension that identifies it as either 4dp or pc. Next, change the IF(TM1RPTELISCONSOLIDATED... formula in column A (assuming you haven't added any extra columns yourself) to concatenate the attribute on the end. Then insert extra rows as necessary in the forma...

Re: TM1 9.4 FP2 - Servers

Thanks for that Martin.

Reason i am asking is that over time, Tm1 slows down. We are not sure why. We restart our Tm1 instance daily. The server it sits on has not been restarted for around a month so we are looking to see if others have had a similar type of issue with TM1 slowing down over time.

Further to the above;

Can TM1 run on Red Hat Linux Enterprise 5.3

Also is there any known issues with “performance” such as suspected memory leak issues with TM1?
