Dynamic Header (OBI report)

Hi
I have just started working on OBIE. Need some suggestions. Is there a way to put a dynamic header in the report.
Eg: I want to display a text in the header as "Sales Report for Alabama" where Alabama is the state coming from the State prompt.
I dont find any formula editor in the edit Title view. Where can i write a formula to display this text.
I would appreciate any suggestions.
Thank You

You have successfully created your presentation variable in the prompt? I guess it will be something as 'State'
Now you go to your report and you edit the title view of your report;
In the title you put @{State} (the name of your presentation variable is case sensitive!)
Save your report and put it together with the prompt on the dashboard. Once you select a state in the prompt, the report title should change automatically.
KR,

  • How to display dynamic header title in the report?

    I have a req to display dynamic header title in the report.
    When a id is entered in the prompt text, it will display the user data based on that user_id.
    so similarly....the header title should vary each time when you select different user_id.
    How can we implement this?

    Zack..I have several projects listed under several project id's...
    so when a user selects project id 00164 then it should display something like "Project document for Jon Doe"
    again when the user selects project id as 00192 then it should display something like "project document for Zimmerman"
    Did you get it??

  • Dynamic header in oo alv print_top_of_page based on current line

    I would expect this to be a common problem with the solution easily to google/find, but somehow...
    dynamic header generation during alv print_top_of_page:
    - i print an oo alv grid, sorted by kunnr
    - for each new kunnr a new page
    -> now I want during print-out to: at each top of page, read the first (or any) line of the current page, i.e. the current kunnr, and select data on basis of that kunnr to be written to the header.
    My problem is that sy-tabix is not being filled correctly (always 1).
    Strange thing is that in another report with a non-dynamic itab to display, sy-tabix is actuall being filled more or less correctly. (with the minor drawback that on the first page the tabix might not be 1 but more likely to be 2; but that's easy to fix and for the next pages sy-tabix is correct)
    Kind regards, A
    baanbrecher

    In the handle_print_top_of_page method, use :
    FIELD-SYMBOLS : <lv_line> TYPE ANY.
    ASSIGN ('(SAPLKKBL)G_INDEX') TO <lv_line>.
    if <lv_line> = 0. "First time, G_INDEX is equal to zero
       <lv_line> = 1.
    endif.
    So in <lv_line> you will always have the good index of your table.

  • SSRS 2008 R2 - Dynamic header data stays the same when exporting

    Background:
    I have a SSRS 2008 R2 report with a single Tablix.
    The data is grouped by InvoiceID, with each appearing on a separate page.
    I'm displaying some of the detail data in the group header row using Expressions similar to the following:
    ="Invoice # "  & ReportItems!InvoiceID.Value"
    The data referred to by my ReportItems statements are all hidden in the detail row (Advanced Mode, the Hidden Value for the Static Row Group is set to false).
    Problem:
    When I Preview the report in Visual Studio, everything looks as it should - the dynamic header data changes correctly with each group.
    However, whenever I export the results (I've tried all the formats), the header data is the same for every group - its taking the values from the first group and using it in all the groups.
    I've copied the same expressions into my Totals row, and the data is correct when exported; its only happening in my header rows.
    Any help in resolving this is greatly appreciated, thank you.

    Hi Alex,
    According to your description, you have a header with expression contains ReportItems. Now you find it shows incorrect result when exporting to a file. Right?
    In Reporting Services, it has reported some similar issue that the ReportItem returns unexpected result when exporting.  In this scenario, since you just want to show the group name in each page as a header for detail rows. So you can make the
    detail rows group on the Group. Then delete the Group column but still keep the group. After that add a row above detail row (Out side of group) and put in "=Fields!InvoiceID.Value". Now it will show the corresponding Group name
    when you set page break between each group instance. We have tested this case in our local environment. Here are screenshots for your reference:
    Reference:
    SSRS
    field expressions using ReportItem refrences have unexpected results when exporting
    If you have any question, please feel free to ask.

  • ALV Dynamic header

    LAYOUT FORMAT
    Program Title

    No.|  Position| Leave Taken| From|Leave Taken To| Type of Leave|
    Leave Entitlement| No. Of Leave Taken|     Present Balance of Leave|
    Please help to program dynamic alv header for above format. I have used page break on Pernr but the header is not coming according to pernr. Though I managed
    dynamic header when we press Print Preview. But that is not a solution.

    Hi,
    I did something very similar to your requirement.
    There is a predefined event for Reuse_alv_list_display called 'BEFORE_LINE_OUTPUT'. In the event table, you have to specify the <event>-name = 'BEFORE_LINE_OUTPUT' and the <event>-form = 'ALV_BEFORE_LINE_OUTPUT'.
    Then you need a form like
    FORM alv_before_line_output
      USING ps_lineinfo TYPE kkblo_lineinfo.                    "#EC CALLED
      FIELD-SYMBOLS:
        <prot> TYPE typ_prot.
      READ TABLE gt_prot INDEX ps_lineinfo-tabindex
        ASSIGNING <prot>.
      CHECK g_file_no <> <prot>-file_no.
      g_file_no = <prot>-file_no.
      NEW-PAGE.
    ENDFORM.                    "alv_before_line_output
    In my program the global table displayed in ALV was gt_prot (of line type typ_prot) and the requirement was to start a new page for each file processed. The form stores the file processed in
    g_file_no. If a new file is processed, a NEW-PAGE will trigger the TOP_OF_PAGE event of the alv. I will not copy the form here because we also issued some statistical values, system and user informations and so on.
    But I hope you get it done.
    The only remaining issue may be that the before_line_output event will cost some time because it is triggered for every output line. But my report was still quite fast.

    Clemens

  • Link from OBI report/OBI Answers to other application

    Hi,
    We want to add a link from the OBI report / OBI Answers to our application. Is there a way to create a link on the values displayed and pass values as parameter on that link?
    Thanks.

    Hello,
    You can create a hyperlink within a column formula in Answers. You can use Go Url to pass multiple parameters as well. Check out the OBIEE presentation Services Administration Guide (Chapter 11 I believe).
    We have created dynamic hyperlinks in BI report that invokes an Apex page as well.
    Hopefully the following link will help.

  • Dynamic Header help in PDF Portfolio

    Need some help please, to create and load a Dynamic Header when creating a PDF Portfolio in LiveCycle ES2.  Have input parameter of a [name] and an [image file] to place in the Header.  Process flowing out of Assembler (PDF Generator).  Currently other PDFs being inserted within the Portfolio, and Navigation parameter being received ok, and setting up custom navigation.  Any help w/ creating Dynamic Header is very much appreciated.

    By "Dynamic Header" do you mean the PDF cover page, or the interactive portfolio navigator?
    If its the cover page then it should be a fairly easy thing to do.  You can create a form (XDP or PDF template) with a field for the name and one for the image.  Then you would use something like LC Forms or Form Data Integration to merge the data (image and name) with the template.
    The one thing you would have to do is to put the image and data into an XML format before you merge it with the form. That means you will need to convert the image to a base64 encoded format.  Fortunately there is a built in function for doing the conversion in a SetValue operation (its under Document Object Functions).
    If you are talking about the Navigator (portfolio shell) then it gets a bit more tricky.  The navigator is actually a Flex application and not a PDF.  You'll have to code a new one using Flash Builder, then import the resulting .nav file into your LiveCycle application. Merging the data with it is not something I've done before, but it should be possible (the LiveCycle Interactive Statement Solution Accelerator does something similar).
    If it is new navigator you need, check out some of the following links:

  • Applying a Template to a Dynamic PL/SQL Report

    I have an application in which there are several reports, all based on the wizard and using standard templates.
    One of my reports, however is a Dynamic PL/SQL Report, using htp.print statements to create the output.
    I'm not quite sure, how I can specify that I want to use the same template as the rest of my reports, so as to maintain the look and feel of the whole application.
    Can someone tell me how this is done, or where I can read about it?
    Thank you.

    Sergio,
    I have a table with two columns I want to display. The columns aren't wide but there are 15 or 20 rows. What I would like is that after 10 rows the report starts another set of colums beside the first ones. The standard report continues on down so you have to scroll down to see the bottom. I'm not sure if my explanation is clear so instead of:
    1 info1
    2 info2
    3 info3
    4 info4
    5 info5
    6 info6
    I want:
    1 info1 4 info4
    2 info2 5 info5
    3 info3 6 info6
    Not being too picky, it could also be:
    1 info1 2 info2
    3 info3 4 info4
    5 info5 6 info6
    I don't see a way of doing this with standard reporting so a PL/SQL report seems to be the way to go (which works fine except for the formatting). Sorry if I've just missed it in the options. I'd prefer to do it using standard HTMLDB
    Thanks.

  • How to show the columns dynamically in OBIEE report based on the selection?

    Hi,
    I have a requirement where the columns should be dynamically shown in report based on what we select in propmt page.
    I'm creating a report in OBIEE where i want to give an option to the end user to select the columns whichever he wants to see in the report.
    For example I have the following columns in the report already:
    Customer Name,
    Customer Number,
    Bank Account,
    Address
    I want to give an option to the user to select 'Customer Mail ID' dynamically and see the column to be displyed in the report along with the existing columns.
    Through 'Column Selector' user can select a single column at a time, but if he want to select more than one column, how can we do this ?
    Please help me out in resolving this issue.
    Thanks,
    Chaithanya.

    Hi Chaithanya,
    there's not a straight solution for this. You can create different analysis containing different number of columns and then directing the user to this analysis using Action Links or you can also use View Selector to switch from one view (analysis) to the other. But it's not going to be very flexible nor dynamic.

  • Dynamic Header for a website.    DOUBLE POINTS FOR ANSWER!!

    I don't even know where to start with this one, let me try explain this:
    I am looking for ideas on how to create some sort of dynamic header for an affiliate website, we have launched a new affiliate program for http://www.africancures.com/ the affiliate program is done through 1shoppingcart.com and each affiliate is given an ID like:
    http://www.1shoppingcart.com/app/?af=812264
    Once the affiliate signs up they choose their own website URL like: mikeshealth.com, then we point the affiliate URL mikeshealth.com to http://www.1shoppingcart.com/app/?af=812264 which in turn comes to our main website: http://www.africancures.com/ now here is where the problem comes in, how do I make the website display Mikes Health instead of African Cures .
    I hope I was able to explain this well enough as it seems to be a bit confusing to me when I write it down. I really hope there is someone out there who has worked on something like this before or if there is someone who thinks they know how to do this.
    Thank you
    So here is something else I was thinking of, but I am not much of a programmer anymore:
    Have a list of all the affiliate ids and their corresponding website names, eg:
    Affiliate ID=812264 Website name= Mikes Health, then when someone comes to the site the jave works out which affiliate id sent them to the site, eg
    Get(AffiliateID)from Refering.URL then Display.Header(AffiliateID) on main page, do you think you could help me now Sabre150?

    I'm still trying to see what this has to do with Java. Each host name such as mikeshealth.com will need to be registered with name servers with the IP address of www.1shoppingcart.com. Your web server will then need to be configured to perform perform any mapping.
    Again, what has this to do with Java?

  • Dynamic header / footer

    Hi all,
    I created an Adobe Form and defined on the MasterPage a header, a footer and a main area (content are) in-between. The areas were defined with a fixed size (somehow it was the only way because "fit height" and "fit width" was innactive).
    Because the form is used in different countries the amount of information in the different areas is not the same. Therefore I am looking for a dynamic header and footer (and main area). That should help to optimise the space exploitation on a page. The header should grow from top of the page down, the footer bottom up and the main area fill the gap.
    I know that this is a very sophisticated demand. Nevertheless, I hope that someone else had similar ideas and could solve that task.
    I appreciate any help, hints and good advices which leads to a solution of my problem.
    Thanks & regards,
    Phil

    Hi Andres,
    thanks a lot for your quick answer!
    In your MasterPage, add only the items that will remain static during the execution.
    Every object that will behave in a dynamic manner should go in the BodyPage.
    Very good hint, thanks!
    What you can do is set a Subform with flowed Western Text between your Header/Footer
    (Static) of your MasterPage. Within that main Subform set three more, "Western Text" as well.
    One will be for your Dynamic Header, the middle one for your Main and the bottom one for your
    Dynamic Footer.
    I think I did not really get it! As far as I understand this works for one page...my form - when filled with data - can have more than one page!
    Some questions came up when I read your solution:
    1) why is the flowed content "western text" and not "top to bottom"?
    2) what happens exactly with the area of the static header / footer? It's above the dynamic header and below dynamic footer -> is that space not wasted in the end?
    3) The dynamic footer is directly below the main area - not necessarily at the bottom of the page!?
    4)  How is the "pagination" defined for each of the three dynamic areas (header / main / footer)?
    I hope you'll find the time to answer my question soon!
    Thanks & regards,
    Phil
