RFE 108021: extend scope of temporary objects beyond creating process

For anyone using bedrock or any other TurboIntegrator function library the current implementation of temporary subsets & views renders them for all intents and purposes completely useless as the temp object is only available within the scope of the process that created it and can't be accessed by a ...

Re: Complex SQL affect how long TI takes to open?

Does the complexity of a SQL statement affect how long a TI process takes to open? Is there some processing/validation that takes place during the initial opening of a TI process - i.e. does it validate the SQL or reparse the variables? For one of my TI processes, the initial Data Source window tak...

Re: ODBC Drill - Formating

Also where is the drill being performed? If it is on the web then the formatting has to come from the source. If you are drilling in Excel then there are other VBA driven options. If you have some code to take over the New Workbook event you can check to see if it is the result of a drill and then a...

Re: Excel / Websheet cell dependencies

Hi Martin, I'm surprised there haven't been any responses to your question, it sounds like an interesting problem. It might be because it is a little difficult to figure out what exactly you are doing with your report. For a start TM1 web is not optimised for large websheets. A better design approac...

Hi Steve, Sorry if this is a bit late just haven't had time to post anything lately.

Once consolidations are accounted for probably around dou...

Re: Managing Security with Rules

If you have the view already open the new elements in the dynamic subset won't automatically come into the subsets on the row or column dimensions, this is normal. You have to refresh/rebuild/reopen the view for any new members of dynamic subsets to display.

Re: Recommendations for 700 users and high volumes

Mike, Generally I would say 700 users is not a problem but it is really going to come down to the number of concurrent users writing data at any one time. If you went with a split out / distributed / regionalised model then any concurrency issues are likely to fade away but you will have rep and syn...

Re: Reordering Elements

OK, I'm going to presume that your new elements are either orphans or are sitting under a "New Elements" hierarchy. In either case it is pretty easy to write either a TI or MDX to create a subset to scoop up these elements into a list for processing. Next create an attribute in the dimension, call i...

Re: Reordering Elements

Do you mean just placing new elements under the correct parents or is the actual order of the elements under the parents important? If it's the former then this is easy with TI, if it's the later then not so. Unless you are dealing with a time dimension I would argue that index order is not importan...

Re: TI can't open Data Source Files

If you have checked out file permissions and file paths and everything seems to check out then a file lock is looking more likely as your cause. The file doesn't have to be open in another application to prevent TI being able to open it, the OS just needs to think that some other application has a l...
