Hiding and clearing cells in WebI 4.0

Hi guys,
We are building a resourcing solutions which looks at exceptions between Timesheet data and Resourcing data, ie. the resourcing team want to be able to see that the time logged by consultants matches what is was planned by resourcing. 
The WebI report is being built on top of BPC10.0 using a BPC planning model.  Within the planning model the timesheet data and resourcing data will be stored as versions.  We are able to build a WebI report from a BEx query on top of this model, but we are struggling with presenting the data as requested.  Within the report resourcing want to be able to see the resourcing data and the timesheet data.  What we want to do is compare the timesheet and resourcing versions, blank out any cells for dates where there are no exceptions, and remove any consultants who have no exceptions at all that week. 
An example of this would be:
4th    5th    6th    7th   8th
Consultant A     Res      1        1      1      0      0
Time      1        1     1      0      0
Consultant B     Res       1       0       0      1      1
Time      0       0       1      1      1
So in this case we would want to completely hide the data for consultant A and show the data for consultant B in this format:
4th    5th    6th    7th    8th
Consultant B    Res      1       x       0         x       x
Time      0       x        1        x       x
Where x donates a blank cell. 
The problem we have with the filters and conditions we have currently been working with is that either we are able to only blank out cells with no exceptions, or to completely remove any day with out exceptions (ie we would only see the dates the 4th and 6th displayed.  We need to keep the week structure there so that the view is intuitive to the User).  Neither of the "solutions" we are working on has the full functionality that we need and we can't find the middle ground.   
I have searched the SDN for similar issues but haven't been able to find anything that really matches up to this.  Apologies if I have missed a similar thread and am covering old ground, but any help would be greatly appreciated.  Does anyone have a solution for these issues?
Many thanks,
Mike

Apologies I should have posted the solution. 
In the end it was quite simple so it makes me a bit embarrassed for asking the question in the first placeg.  I am new to SAP though and my speciality is actually CRM rather than BPC or BI so I have an excuse.  Originally we were using one key figure (sign data which showed how much time was booked) in our BEx query which was matched against two structures which were our timesheet and resourcing versions within our BPC model.  We instead created 2 restricted key figures (timesheet, resourcing) and 2 calculated key figures (exceptions, exceptionssumperemployee) which allowed us to change how our data was represented.  The WebI report was then built from this BEx query.  We were then able to filter any consultants out where exceptionsumperemployee = 0 using the filter function within our WebI report.  We were also able to write a formula within WebI which blanked out all cells on any rows where the exceptions = 0.
I don't know if it was the cleanest solution available but it certainly seems to work.  Hope I explained myself coherently. 
Cheers,
Mike

  • Hiding the blank cells in Webi report - BO 4.0

    Hi,
    I have created a webi report in which i have used different types of blocks
    1) Form table
    2) Verticle table
    3) Horizontal table.
    so now in real time there chances that some of the blocks will not have any data.(i.e it displays blank cell) in the report.
    so now i have to hide only the blank cells and not the table headers.that means though the cells are blank i have to display headers.
    what formatting changes i need to achieve this in Webi Report.
    If anybody does this please let me know the step by step logic in detail.
    Thanks in advance.
    Regards,
    Naga Nanda Kishore.

    Hi,
    We cannot hide specifc cells in WebI, however we can choose to whether to display or not empty measure values and empty dimension value.
    So you need to select the desired block-> Right Click  and Select Format Table-> Uncheck Show rows with empty dimension values or Show rows with empty measure values whichever is required to be hidden.
    Hope this helps.

  • How to show a blank or clear cell for the first entry in a numbers pop-up menu on a mac. I can do it on the iPad but not on the mac. Thank you.

    Can you please advise how to show a blank or clear cell as the first option in a pop -up menu on a Mac, I can see how on an IPad but but not on the Mac.
    Thank you.

    Hi grm,
    Yvan Koenig wrote an Applescript to create an popup menu with a true blank menu item. You can find it in Yvan's Box Account public area. Click on for_iWork'09, then for-numbers'09, then look for and download popup_with_nil.zip. Unzip the file, then open it with ScriptEditor.
    Yvan's scripts include instructions (in French and English) on how and where to save the script and how to use it. I haven't read this one recently, so I can't give you any further details on it.

  • Using Google GWT to create (Dashcode) widgets for iBook Author  I would like to embed interactive widgets in iBooks using iBookAuthor. The widgets in question started life in Java but GWT has allowed them to be converted to javascript and to run on web pa

    I would like to embed interactive widgets in iBooks using iBookAuthor. The widgets in question started life in Java but GWT has allowed them to be converted to javascript and to run on web pages (for example, http://softoption.us/content/node/437 scroll to the bottom). In theory, iBookAuthor can bring in most html5, and much javascript. The technique is to wrap the html in a folder, with 2 extra files, a plist and a default png and then change the extension of the folder to ‘.wdgt’. This is the technique for making Dashboard widgets for the Mac, and Apple even have the Dashcode software to do it. So what you really do is to make a Dashboard widget, then iBookAuthor can import it.  So far, so good. And some  folk have been doing this, for example http://www.prweb.com/releases/2012/2/prweb9242432.htm http://www.panophoto.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=64&t=10417&p=158330#p158423 However, if you start with GWT and create a single page with one button and a Hello World, compile it, and get the WAR file (I use Eclipse here)… the Safari browser and others will run it properly (even on an iPad). Then if you wrap it, a proper Dashboard widget is created, which runs properly on a Mac. Then if you go to iBookAuthor and put a custom widget in the Text, then drag it in. It is accepted by the text and shown as being there. However, if you use Preview to look at it on an iPad, it is gone (or was never there in the first place). Anyone any ideas on this? [And iBook Author seems to give no warnings.] The widget is at https://dl.dropbox.com/u/46713473/Test6.wdgt.zip I have bells and whistles that I’d like to get into an iBook!
    Thanks for any insights.
    Martin

    I do have a little to add, which might help someone. Indeed, opening a blank page and dragging the widget straight in seems good in difficult cases. But, actually, I was also able to insert successfully from the Toolbar especially to blank pages. So, it may have been something to do with the columns and stuff like that. Anyway back then the insertion would show in iBooks Author but not in the Preview on the iPad. I moved on to actual Google Web Toolkit output javascript. Basically I had three at hand to try: a Hello World with a button which went straight it, one of moderate complexity, (for example with a built in Lisp interpreter), which also went straight in, and finally a more complex one that initially was rejected by iBook Author. Author complained that there was an unsupported media file (of course, Author does not tell you which one it is, that would be too easy). [Remember, this was a proper working Dashboard widget which could be installed on a Mac]. Among other things I had read remarks about .gif files. When looking through the GWT war directory at the actual javascript etc files, I noticed there were two gifs there one called ‘clear.cache.gif ‘  and a second one called  ‘0F89659FF3F324AE4116F700257E32BD.cache.gif’. (Now, there is obfuscation so the numbers here may be different from case to case.) The clear.cache.gif did not seem to be anything special. But the other one is an animation. It is three little boxes that twinkle (rather like a waiting spinning cursor).  So, I opened that file and saved it to itself (that picks the top frame of the animation and saves only that, leaving you with an unanimated gif). The resulting widget drags and drops into iBooks Author (and seems to work properly at a quick glance). So, if you are having trouble with ‘unsupported media files’ converting animated gifs into unanimated gifs might help in some cases.

  • USE OF ZERO AND BLANK CELLS IN CALCS

    Hello Everybody,
    I'm making a new script logic that acumulates the values month by month, it means that february=januaryfebruary, march=januaryfeb+mar, etc. Everything was workin fine, until i had some values in blank in few months, in those cases the calc ignored them and stops the acumulation.
    For example if i have info only from jan to sep, the calc doesn't show any value for oct,nov and dec. What i want in those cases is that the data obtained for sep be the same in oct, nov and dec, because in theory the sum should be +zero(which is the value contained in blank cells right?)
    Does anybody knows why is this calc stopping at this level?
    Thanks in advance!

    Hi,
    Do you run the script from Data package? if not
    check
    XDIM_MEMBERSET is very important to fix the scope for the calculation.
    To avoid this system reaction you can change the coding and clearly define
    which account shall be taken into account when doing the calculation
    independent if one of the defined member has or has not changed its value.
    You do this via Memberset statements.
    other approach  is  YTD measures
    Hope this helps.

  • Problem clearing Cell on a TiledLayer

    Hi,
    I've got a problem with a TiledLayer in that I when I set a cell to 0 to clear it nothing happens. It works fine when I set it to anything else so it's definitely not a problem with the layer not being drawn, but if I try and clear it the last specified tile is displayed.
    I've checked whether the change was stored by calling getCell() for the cell in question and the 0 has been stored.
    Is there anything that I'm missing or a specific reason why I might be having this problem?
    Thanks in advance
    Nick

    Just figured it out myself. Came from a lacking understanding how the whole frame buffer thing works. I've now figured out that it simply copies the buffered frame over the original one, so as an empty cell will be transparent on the buffered frame you can see the original frame in that place.

  • Cell Style / Web template

    Hi,
    I have a web template in which there are 6 tables( 6 Queries).I want to have the first column width fixed for all Queries and same cell style. Where can I specify the same?
    I am able to achieve same cell style by forcing SAPBEXstditem2 a copy of SAPBEXstditem with the required changes in stylesheet.
    For this I wrote the following code in method STRUCTURE_CELL.
    IF L_DATA_PROVIDER = 'SPRDP10'.
    CASE I_X.
    WHEN 1.
    C_CELL_STYLE = 'SAPBEXstdItem2'.
    ENDCASE.
    ENDIF.
    Can someone help How to achieve same width for the first column in all tables. Is there any possiblities to specify cell width also in stylesheet?
    Thanks in advance
    Regards
    Rajooooooooo

    Hi Soniya,
    You can use a style sheet for displaying the report in the web and a separate one for print settings ans styles. In the WAD, when you open a template, see the Properties window > generic tab > Here you can see an entry in the StyleSheet field. If you click on the button next to this then you can select from the list of available stylesheets.
    To view the HTML for the web template simply click the HTML tab at the bottom of the screen. Or you can also view this in the BW system  SE38 > RS_TEMPLATE_MAINTAIN.
    Hope this helps...

  • Cannot move free standing cell in Webi 4?

    Hello all,
    Have you encountered or heard an issue of not able to move the blank cell in Web Intelligence 4.0?  this happened both in webi rich client and at web interface.
    Suppose we can add a free standing cell/blank cell freely at any empty area of a report.  But it is always aligned to the left.  No way to move it around!!  This problem is at  blank cell, pre-defined cell (e.g. document name, page number, .. , etc).
    this seems a simple function but cannot make it to work!  any suggesiton is appreciated. Thanks.
    Regards, gloria

    Hi,
    this was a problem that we tracked and fixed  in patch 2.5, you should please install SP2 and Patch 2.11 which is the latest available.

  • Urgent: "Clear Cell Text" utility under Admin menu cleared data

    Hello John,
    Have you used that "Clear Cell Details" utility successfully? It wiped out other scenarios even though I specified only one.
    At the end of the run, I think it asked me if I wanted to know what to do with data it cleared - and I said to fill it with #missing.

  • Hiding and overriding clarifications

    I am trying to understand the Java language specification document,
    one of the worst technical docs I've seen in 35+ years in the business.
    Right now I'm trying to clarify the implications and meanings of these
    two terms (hiding and overriding) in a very simple environment. Maybe
    someone here can make it clear.
    Context is just basic classes with fields, initializers, constructors, and
    methods; no interfaces, no nested classes. Keep it clear and simple.
    When I create a subclass, I understand that fields and methods are
    inherited. I also understand how hiding of fields works, and how to
    access a hidden field from an external class.
    But methods. Sheesh! At first I thought maybe fields are hidden and
    methods are overridden. But, no, because there's 8.4.10.5 titled
    "Example: Invocation of Hidden Class Methods". So a method can
    be hidden, and a hidden method can be accessed.
    So, here are my questions:
    * What is the difference between overriding a method and hiding a method?
    * How can you tell / demonstrate a method is hidden or overridden?
    * If a method is overridden, is it always inaccessible from an external class?
    * Are there pitfalls to avoid with hiding / overriding methods?
    * Are there features to exploit with hiding / overriding methods?
    * Do instance methods have different behaviors / facilities than
    class methods, as far as hiding and overriding?
    Thanks.

    * What is the difference between overriding a
    method and hiding a method?Overriding a method means the subclass chooses not to use the parent class's implementation. Hiding a method I assume means you declare a method private so that a subclass cannot use it.
    * How can you tell / demonstrate a method is hidden
    or overridden?The modifier private will be applied to methods that are hidden. Overridden methods will have the same signature as the parent and are thus easy to spot as well.
    * If a method is overridden, is it always
    inaccessible from an external class?You're confused. Hidden/private methods affect visibility. Overriding a method doesn't change it's visibility so external classes may or may not be able to access it. It all depends on the access modifiers you've applied
    * Are there pitfalls to avoid with hiding /
    overriding methods?You'd have to provide a specific scenario for this question. This is too open-ended.
    * Are there features to exploit with hiding /
    overriding methods????
    * Do instance methods have different behaviors /
    facilities than
    class methods, as far as hiding and overriding?What you're talking about is static vs. instance methods. Google it, I'm done for now.

  • Formatting, Alignment and editable cell verification cl_gui_alv_grid

    Hi,
    My requirement:
    2 cols in the report are editable
    1st col - depending upon conditions either open for input or not editable
    3 buttons added in the menu
    page heading (basically a list of entries from itab - 5 cols)
    here are the couple of things where im stuck:
    1. page heading - im able to get this using control cl_dd_document (add_gap, add_text) the only prob is the alignment of the col especially when there is no value in between or when the value contains digits. what happens is either the character prints to the left (1 or 2 chars) or few chars to the right
    2. Save: validations, handled in method data_changed and also im calling check_changed_data method in user command.
    i enter only one invalid value in a cell and press Save button - it throws the error (add_display_protocol) and clears the value!
    How do I prevent the value from being cleared? Im doing the following validations in data_changed:
    a. cell validation
    b. row validation related to user command eg. if plant = value1 then button1 click allowed. if plant = value2 then button2 click allowed else raise error
