  • Excel function and ev function not working in static column key

    I have created a evdre report and I notice that  when I tried to use any excel function and ev functions in the static column key cell to get the value for that cell, it's not working.
    e.g I have Col key define as:
    ColKeyRange  Sheet!&$J$12:$N$14
    In K13 which is key id for time. I define is as = $K$10 where K10 is the time value from current view, it not working,the value is still K13 = $K$10. then I tried to use EVCVW function to replace K10, it also not working, but I use the same function in the description of the ID underneath, both of the are working, Any thought?

    That was exactly what I meant. They just dont work on the green ID areas or the yellow data region. Few days back even I tried that, but didnt work. So, I followed the different approach. I dont remember about the dynamic templates. Are you sure that the functions were written in the green ID region?
    I remember this used to work fine in the MS version. However, in the NW version, even I am not able to make them work.

  • Can be passed Formula Column value to Procedure/Function?

    Below cf_value is return after some calculation by using main query.
    Can be directly passed formula column value to procedure without assinged to placeorder?
    as below..
    My Procedure is...
    PROCEDURE f_convert( val1 in number,val2 in out number) IS
    val2 := val1 * 100;
    If anyone knows pls reply me....

    Actually, if there is any other calculations there (In Proceudre)
    Can I used is as below??
    PROCEDURE f_convert( val1 in number,val2 in out number) IS
    val2 := val1 * 100;
    return (val2);
    ----A procedure cannot return a value, the return clause in my previous post was part of the function for formula column.
    Suppose you have a formula column say CF_2 then the function for it will be as:
    function cf_2formula return number
    val1 number;
    val2 number;
    val2 := :cf_1 * 100; -- or val2 := val1 * 100 --parameters not allowed in formula column function
    -- All the other code that you need inclusive of calling function, procedure as in any PL/SQL block can be placed
    return (val2);
    end;So any other calculation can be used in the formula column function

  • Not able to burst report referring to Formula Column in XML file.

    Hello all,
    I am using bursting feature to spit single report to multiple pdfs. All is well when I reference column queried from the database in the xml file but I when I give column from Formula column it is doing coredump.
    XML File contents:
    <!-- Generate a file for each warehouse -->
    <file id="MyFiles" name="/data/reports/pdf/assrt_terr&amp;&lt;file_name&gt;.pdf" format=
    "pdf" instance="this">
    <include src="report"/>
    The "file_name" referenced in the above is a formula column. If it is replace with a column from the query it works fine. Please let me know if anyone knows if it is a limitation or any workaround?
    Thanks in advance,

    If I can have that in the query I would have not done a formula column. And I do know that it works if the column is in the query. I would like to know any workaround to make it work from formula column.
    I have to take data from sub-group of this query, aggregate it and then concatinate with one of the columns grouped - so i had to use formula column.

  • Can text be displayed in a formula column using mathematical functions?

    I am working with Financial Reports version and I'm trying to accomplish the following scenario:
    Column D is a data column
    Column E is a text column containing the value "TEXT"
    Column F is a formula column with the following formula: IfThen([D]=0,[E],[D])
    What I want to see happen is if the value in column D is 0 then I want the value "TEXT" to appear in column F, otherwise; I want to show the data value that is in column D. Is it possible to display text in a formula column and if so, what is the syntax for that? Or does anyone have another way to accomplish this? Any help would be appreciated.

    Short answer: No.
    For your particular issue, I would suggest putting your TEXT value in the #zero and #missing overrides in Report Studio.
    In general, Hyeprion Reporting does not do any real text validations or functions like you could use in Excel.
