Dense Rank in OBIEE answers

Hi All,
Can any on let me know how to create a column in OBIEE answers  which gives the row number starting with 1 for each row  in the group. similarly for next group the row number should start with 1 and so on.
Thanks in advance for your quick response!
Regards

This feature had appear in the 9i version, so there is no way to have it running with a 6i version. If you have a 9i database, you could write a database stored function/procedure that would use this analytic function, and return the lines to Forms.

  • TopN and Rank in OBIEE-Answer

    Hi All,
    I'm an "OBIEE newbie" and not sure how to use the Topn or Rank function to achieve the desired resullt below.
    I have a report that will display the top 10 or 20 (or whaterver # entered by users) of hospitals that have highest # of patients and then a sum of patients from the rest of other hospitals. ex:
    Hospitals #patients rank
    ABC 1500 1
    KLM 1200 2
    DEF 1200 2
    XYZ 200 10
    Other hospistals:      5000
    The top 10 or 20 # will be used as a prompt.
    Your help is much appreciated !!!
    Thanks,
    Ty

    Hi David,
    I did follow John's posting (it's very helpful for a beginner) but I just could not figure out what he did in Pivot table to get the SUM of the one that did not make the top 10 list. If you could show me how to do that :)
    Thank you for help!

    try to wrap your query to become an in-line view. use a case statement or decode to your derived column RN from the analytic query of DENSE RANK. either way they both will work.

  • Can we apply Dense Rank

    Hi All,
    I am working on Oracle BI Publisher. Can we apply Dense Rank on a column directly in the template? I don't want to change the total query for this, is there any way to do in template? if yes please tell me how can we do.
    Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks in advance,
    Anil.

    Anil
    I think it can be done in XSL but its going to take some effort. You might be better using the db to provide the record ranking as a value in the resulting XML. Then its just a case of sorting on the ranking values.

  • Using Dense Rank

    Hello,
    I am using ORACLE 10g and having an error when updating a table and generating ORA-30926 'Unable to get a stable set of rows in the source tables'.
    I create a temporary working table with records pulled from 2 different tables. The query to make the temp table uses
    the DENSE RANK FUNCTION to eliminate any duplicates. But, I am still getting duplicate records.
    When it is time to update my primary table with the records from the temp table, it sees the duplicates and
    generates the error. I have all the code to create the problem. I think I almost have it but maybe need different query structure.Any help is appreciated.

    AND a.EMP_ID = c.EMP_ID
    AND (a.PURCHASE_DATE <= c.PURCHASE_DATE OR
    c.PURCHASE_DATE IS NULL)
    and a.drank=1;
    The query you've posted is behaving according to the expectations. The inner select is returning one row and the outer is returning two as the
    WHERE a.CUST_ID = c.CUST_ID
    AND a.EMP_ID = c.EMP_ID
    AND (a.PURCHASE_DATE <= c.PURCHASE_DATE OR
    c.PURCHASE_DATE IS NULL)
    conditions are seeing two rows in the table customer.
    I've added the a.drank=1 clause to skip the duplicates from the inner table and distinct in the final result to remove duplicates from the overall query result.
    For eg, if you have one more row in the deferred_mailing like this
    SQL> select * from DEFERRED_MAILING;
    CUST_ID EMP_ID PURCHASE_
    444 10 11-JAN-11
    444 10 11-JAN-11
    then the query without "a.drank=1" will return 4 rows like this by the outer query.
    CUST_ID EMP_ID PURCHASE_ DM_ROW_ID DRANK C N
    444 10 11-JAN-11 AAATi2AAGAAAACcAAB 2 Y Y
    444 10 11-JAN-11 AAATi2AAGAAAACcAAA 1 Y Y
    444 10 11-JAN-11 AAATi2AAGAAAACcAAB 2 Y Y
    444 10 11-JAN-11 AAATi2AAGAAAACcAAA 1 Y Y
    It'll return the below even if we use distinct on the same query(i.e. without a.drank=1)
    CUST_ID EMP_ID PURCHASE_ DM_ROW_ID DRANK C N
    444 10 11-JAN-11 AAATi2AAGAAAACcAAB 2 Y Y
    444 10 11-JAN-11 AAATi2AAGAAAACcAAA 1 Y Y
    which contains duplicates again.
    So, we need a combination of distinct and dense here.
    btw, Please mark the thread as 'answered', if you feel you got your question answered. This will save the time of others who search for open questions to answer.

  • Help on Dense Rank Function

    DENSE_RANK() OVER (PARTITION BY AMT ORDER BY AMT DESC) AS DENSE_RANK
    FROM

    AMT     DENSE_RANK
    0     1
    2,855     1
    6,706     1
    14,265     1

    you have "broken" up your resultset (from the inline view) by AMT (PARTITION BY AMT)
    and per part, you sort this (one row in each partition, not a whole lot of sorting) ( ORDER BY AMT DESC)
    then you assign a ranking based on the sorting action... which yields 1 (DENSE_RANK)
    Are you looking for this
    SELECT
    AMT,
    DENSE_RANK() OVER (ORDER BY AMT DESC) AS DENSE_RANK
    FROM
    SELECT DISTINCT
    SUM(NVL(TRUNC(NET_AMT) * NVL(GLOBAL1_EXCHANGE_RATE,1),0))

  • How to change the default up arrow in OBIEE Answers

    Hi All,
    I want to change the default blue up arrow with a green up arrow in OBIEE answers. How to do it?
    Regards,
    Soumitra

    Do you mean the condition formatting options ? If so I had a similar requirement to create a Green up arrow and an orange 'sideways' arrow. I did the following, all based on a default Windows install using OC4J :
    Navigate to :
    C:\OracleBI\oc4j_bi\j2ee\home\applications\analytics\analytics\res\s_oracle10\meters\arrow\tri\
    I copied up.gif to upgreen.gif and change the colour in a image editor.
    I coped up.gif, rotated 90 degrees, changed colour to orange and saved this as sideways.gif
    I copied the two new files into the Web services stye folders also :
    C:\OracleBI\web\app\res\s_oracle10\meters\arrow\tri
    restarted OC4J and presentation services and they are now available in the conditional formatting options, alongside the defaut Blue (up) and red(down) arrows.
    ** I believe the new pictures need to exist in any other style folders that you are using, e.g "s_hyperion", "s_oracle10", s_custom if you've done your own.

  • Field is in DB table/alias but I get ORA904 error using it in OBIEE Answers

    Hello, I'm very new at developing with RPD and OBIEE tools, so I'm struggling with something that I thought I did correctly. I added a new field to a database table, and can query it in the database. I added it to the table in RPD Physical layer and I verified that it also now exists in an alias of that table. The physical alias table field is used as a source for a logical column in the presentation layer. Everything looks good in the RPD. But when I try to pull it up in a query in OBIEE Answers I get a 904 error telling me that the column does not exist. I've bounced the servers, dropped cookies and cache, but nothing helps - I still get the error.
    What step could I have missed?
    Thanks in advance!
    Rich

    THank you all for the advice, but it still appears to be a problem. Here's what I tried and the results:
    1. Right-clicked on the new column to do a row count update. As predicted by Gaurav, this also failed with a 904 error.
    2. Verified exact spelling is correct.
    3. Checked the connection pool. THis looks correct, but I will double-check today with one of my co-workers who has more experience with RPD.
    4. Tried querying the column in RPD - this also failed with 904 error.
    5. Checked the LTS within BMM layer and my new field does map back to the alias column
    6. Ran a consistency check and the only errors (warnnings actually) are for a different, unrelated table.
    7. Checked security and it also looks okay, but this is another one I'll double-check later with one of our experts here.
    8. Joins in physical layer and BMM look good
    9. Checked physical column and table in the presentation layer. These also point to the right columns/tables
    10. Selecting the column by itself in analysis fails with 904.
    If anyone can think of something else to consider based on this please advise. One thing I did notice is that in performing the steps above I noticed somewhere (the BMM I think) that the new column I added is at the bottom of the table (last field) and not in the middle as it is in the database. In past experience with other tools this hasn't mattered, but I'm going to see if I can change that and if that has an effect. I'm guessing it won't but I'm running out of ideas!
    Thanks again,
    Rich

  • OBIEE Answers functionality questions

    Hi,
    I pretty new to OBIEE Answers orginally working with Business Objects XI Webi, I have read through the user guides for Answers but some functionality I would like thats in BO XI but doesnt seem to be avaliable in Answers, Im not sure if its not documented because its more advanced functionality or whether Answers just can't do it ? Is the following functionality avaliable in Answers,
    1. I want to build a report based on 2 queries and then link the data in these queries by a common dimension and display this data in 1 report, for example I have query 1 with fields A,B,C and query 2 with fields A, D, E, I want to link on field A as its common and in the 1 report display the fields A,B,C,D,E
    is this possible ? This is not the same as union / intersect, and is not the same as dashboard showing two query results, I want 1 table showing the results of two queries.
    2. Once you have you data set returned is there anyway to filter on the data displayed in the report without the SQL actually having the filter in ? For example I have 1 query returning 100 rows of data and in that 50 rows are of type = A and 50 are of type = B. I dont want to have two seperate queries one to get all type A and one to get all type B, but I would prefer to return all rows in the query then filter the results in the report itself so I can have 1 report table showing type = A and 1 report table showing type = B, pretty much like how you can add a filter in Excel or again how you would add a report level filter in BO XI ?

    Hi Dak,
    option 1:
    go to advanced tab of that particular report...
    You find check box Check this box to issue an explicit Select Distinct
    option 2:
    Uncheck the following item in Physical layer database features.

  • Request chaning/flow in OBIEE Answers?

    In OBIEE Answers, is it possible to save the value of a request and reuse this value for further
    calculations?
    In other words, I want to use the results of request(s) as the data source for another request.
    The use case is like this:
    1. Use OBIEE Answers to get the value of a metric. There are multiple such metrics. Create one request per metric and save all such requests.
    2. Use the requests saved in step 1 to derive a higher layer of metrics. Save these requests.
    3. Use the requests saved in step 2 to derive a higher layer of metrics. Save these requests.
    And so on.
    Then I want to show these metrics on the dashboard with drill down navigation.
    Appreciate your help.
    Thank you.

    Hi all,
    Thanks for the reply.
    But this doesn't seem to solve the problem.
    Let me put it in other words:
    Result-1:
    Metric_A X <-- single row resulting from a request in OBIEE Answers
    Result-2:
    Metric_B Y <-- again single row resulting from a request in OBIEE Answers
    Result-3 (to be derived from above two results)
    Metric_C a*X + b*Y
    where a, b are constants.
    and so on...

  • Sort in OBIEE Answers - Desc Nulls Last

    I want to sort Desc on a Answers column, but want NULLS last. Where do I set it?
    For instance I can write SQL
    select * from T1 order by c2 Nulls first;
    NULLS last is default behavior in Oracle SQL
    However, via OBIEE Answers, I see when I use DESC Nulls are on top, I want them on bottom.
    Where should I set it?

    Hi shyamvaran,
    What is the value of your "NULL_VALUES_SORT_FIRST" parameter in your NQSConfig.INI file? By default, this is set to OFF. Which is probably what your seeing i.e. if NULLs are last, and you are sorting in descending order, then you would expect to see NULLs first.
    If you want NULLs to show up last when sorting in descending order, then set the above parameter to ON and bounce your services. That should take care of you.
    Otherwise, you can do a work around. Create a hidden column in your report. Set it's formula to IFNULL(C2,'aaaaaaaaaaa') . This way it'll be alphabetically first i.e. last in descending order. Set this column to sort descending and then set it to hidden. It should sort your report in the desired order and it should be hidden from view.
    Good luck and if you found this post useful, please award points!
    Best regards,
    -Joe

    you want to have all values before the semi colon?
