NW2004s Analyzer: "Convert to formula"  #NV
Hello
After running a query in the new Analyzer of NW2004s, I have selected the menu "Convert to formula" > the system shows me only #NV in the key figures.
Has anybody experienced this issue?
Any help appreciated
Thanks
Ioan
I review the note and copied the dll to frontend pc.In some queries convert to formula runs but for some of the queries it does not run.
I tested with two queries.
After choosing convert to formula and copy cells to another cells just like in the demo below , I changed the characteristic for the copied cell. But keyfigure values are not changed. It seems demo https://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/sdn/go/portal/prtroot/docs/library/uuid/b0c67f05f062291061b7ae5a28809e1a is not working.
Do you have any idea?
Thanks..

BEx Analyzer  Convert to formula  Dynamics of a hierarchy
Hi BIExperts,
I have a question regarding the BEx Analyzer built in functionality "convert to formula".
Once I have done this, the report is more ore less static, establishing a fixed link between the cell and the query result.
(BExGetData(u201CDATA_PROVIDER_1u201D,F8,E10)
Let's say I had included a G/L account hierarchy and converted the analysis grid item to formulas: I will lose drill down functionality of the hierarchy, drag & drop etc.. I can live with that.
But what happens, if I update the G/L hierarchy in BI by uploading from ECC and someone added an additional text node and 3 new G/L accounts. They won't appear in my "convert to formula" report, even when refreshing, right?
Does anyone know a workaround for a highly formatted report in BEx Analyzer which keeps the layout when refreshed (only way I know is with "convert to formula") AND using hierarchies which should be able being updated?
Every hint is much appreciated!
Kind Regards,
Steffen Lange>

Thats right, as now the key figure values are basic excel formulas though they refer your dataprovider.
The only option is to update the value of the hierarchy (new nodes etc) in the workbook too, you can add a new row and insert the new hierarchy value it should pick it up and key figures populated accordingly (you may need to put right row column value for your key figure calculation formula).

BI 7.0 Bex Analyzer Workbook  Convert to formula function features
Hello,
when using the convert to formula function in a BI 7.0 Bex Analyzer Workbook (WB) the result area becomes completely static.
1.) Is there a possibility to add drill downs / across into an already converted to formula WB?
2.) I inserted drop down boxes to allow F4 like selections, however those are pointless if several characteristics are being used i.e. the keyfigure results get blanked out. Is there another way to do this at all?
3.) Could someone provide me with a real live example / whitepaper how the convert to formula function can be used?
Many thanks for any feedback on this.
Regards

It does become static and all the workbook gets all the excel property.
The key figures are now calulated on the basis of your data provider from the server as a formula in each cell..
I had used to populate my key figure only for the required values of a characteristic. 
Hello all
Ib bex Analyzer, there is the option of "Convert to Formula". what is the main options and advanteges of this appliction?
B.R
YuvalHi,
Im not that pretty sure about the usage of this.
But what I have observed is that:
1) 'Convert to Formula' converts your input ready layouts into a normal Excel layout.
2)The input readiness is lost once you convert it into formula.
3)All the compounded characteristcs are removed from the layout.
4) If a Key Figures of type % is initially displayed as 70%, then after converting it to Formula, it displays as 70.
For Eg: If keyfigures for Amounts were displayed as 200INR, $100 initially, then once you click on Convert to Formula, the KFs are displayed now as 200,100 and you can do the normal Excel functionalities now like Sum, Min, Max, Average, Count ,etc.
The result rows will be displayed now irrespective of the currencies / units in rows. ie: 200, 100 , the sum is displayed as 300.

Convert to formula gives sometimes #NV
Hi,
I'm having some troubles with the option "Convert to formula" in a BEx Analyzer.
I only have 1 key figures (no formula, just directly from the cube) in my query.
If I run the query I have see for example:
Vendor 
Week 
Quantity
AAAA 
01.2010 
20.000 KG
BBBB 
47.2009 
17.000 KG
BBBB 
49.2009 
15.000 KG
BBBB 
50.2009 
12.000 KG
BBBB 
01.2010 
5.000 KG
When I choose "convert to formula", I get the following result:
Vendor 
Week 
Quantity
AAAA 
01.2010 
20.000 KG
BBBB 
47.2009 
#NV
BBBB

Converting Member Formulas to MDX
Hi Experts!
I'm converting member formulas to MDX for an ASO cube I created and I'm having trouble with the ones that use @MDSHIFT. I'm new to MDX and trying to learn as I go. One of the formulas I'm struggling with is:
IF( @ISMBR("Budget"))
(("Operating Results"
(@MDSHIFT("Operating Results", 1, "Years", , 10,"Budget",)+
"Reclassification Operating Results"))/
(@MDSHIFT("Operating Results", 1, "Years", , 10,"Budget",)+
"Reclassification Operating Results"))*100;
ELSEIF( @ISMBR("Business Plan"))
(("Operating Results"
(@MDSHIFT("Operating Results", 1, "Years", , 4,"Business Plan",)+
"Reclassification Operating Results"))/
(@MDSHIFT("Operating Results", 1, "Years", , 4,"Business Plan",)+
"Reclassification Operating Results"))*100;
ELSE
(("Operating Results"
(@MDSHIFT("Operating Results", 1, "Years",)+
"Reclassification Operating Results"))/
(@MDSHIFT("Operating Results", 1, "Years",)+
"Reclassification Operating Results"))*100;
ENDIF;
This is for a change year over year % member. Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks!
CheersIn all honesty  it looks like you should not just 'convert it.' I dont see any real need to use MDSHIFT here. I would just use PrevMember function for years, while hardcoding the scenario into the tuple.

Convert to Formula using input ready queries
Hi,
Has anyone used converting to formula for input ready queries? When I use this for some reason all the values disappear in the rows and columns (including characteristic and key figure values). I would be interested to know if anyone has used this approach successfully.
Many thanks,Also I want to convert this update routine 3.5 to work in 7
fill the internal table "MONITOR", to make monitor entries
IF COMM_STRUCTUREcostelmnt+2(1) = '7'.
IF COMM_STRUCTUREcostelmnt+2(3) BETWEEN '700' AND '774'.
RESULT = '70'.
ELSEIF COMM_STRUCTUREcostelmnt+2(3) BETWEEN '775' AND '789'.
RESULT = '75'.
ELSEIF COMM_STRUCTUREcostelmnt+2(3) BETWEEN '790' AND '799'.
RESULT = '79'.
ENDIF.
ELSE.
CASE COMM_STRUCTUREcostelmnt+2(1).
WHEN '1'.
RESULT = '10'.
WHEN '2'.
RESULT = '20'.
WHEN '3'.
RESULT = '30'.
WHEN '4'.
RESULT = '40'.
WHEN '5'.
RESULT = '50'.
WHEN '6'.
RESULT = '60'.
WHEN '8'.
RESULT = '80'.
WHEN OTHERS.
RESULT = '00'.
ENDCASE.
ENDIF.
if the returncode is not equal zero, the result will not be updated
RETURNCODE = 0.
if abort is not equal zero, the update process will be canceled
ABORT = 0.

Restrictions for Queries using Convert to Formula
Hi all,
When I want to <b>use the "Convert to Formula" Function in a query are there any restrictions</b>? I.e. are there any <b>restrictions in the way the underlying query needs to be built to be able to use this function properly</b>?
Do you know any documentation referring to this?
Thanks
Christian
Message was edited by: Christian TauberPrakash,
Thanks for the response. You are right about the cell editor and the need for two structures. Also you are right about the "convert formula" option in BEX runtime and one structure. However, I thought that in order for you to be able to use the refernce in additional calculations locally in BEX workbook two structures are required for the reference to be known. That is the experience that we had while working on a scenario here at our client site.

BEx Analyzer report "New Formula", "Scaling Factor" property not working
Hi Experts,
I have created a New Formula(Ex: Dispatches * 2) in BEx Analyzer report. The result of the "New Formula" is 2000. When I maintain Scaling Factor as "1000" to the New Formula properties, the result should be 2 but here 2000 is coming again.
When I maintain this property to the existing keyfigure in Analyzer report, it is working fine.
Please help me in this whether Scaling Factor can be applied to the New Formula or not in BEx Analyzer report. If it works, what changes we have to make to the New formula.
SAPKW73010 is applied already to SAP BW730
Please see the attachment.Sree,
Is the variable ABC the new one that you've created with Scaling factor setting given? The message you get on doing a syntax check on the query indicates that settings are ignored for use beyond the query.
And if this is the case, this is a known issue.
However such settings will work on existing keyfigures as it is in your case.
What you can hence do for this new variable is that if you are developing reports on top of this bex query, you can make the scaling factor setting at the report level.
Let me know if this works for you.

Converting Excel formulas in Numbers
I am new to Numbers and have an Excel Spreadsheet that I've used previously that calculates the best 4 scores from golfers over a 10 week period. In Excel I used =sum(LARGE[e2:n2,{1,2,3,4}]) but when I use it in Numbers I get a Syntax Error message. Is there anyone who can help me convert the Excel formula so that it works in Numbers.
Numbers does not use excels array functions so this will probably work:
=SUM(LARGE(E2:N2, 1), LARGE(E2:N2, 2), LARGE(E2:N2, 3), LARGE(E2:N2, 4)) 
Converting excel formulas to javascripts
Hello, I am not experience in Excel formulas and creating "if" statements in Adobe Acrobat, so I'm hoping someone can help me with this. I have two problems.
1. Here is an excel formula that I need to convert over to javascripts. Can someone help with this?
=IF(Q13>0,Q13+0,"")
2. Here is the second one,
=IF(N16*Q16>0,((N16*Q16)+U16),"")
In addition to these two formulas I need help with, the owner of the forms does not want the numbers to round up. Is there a way to get the exact answer and not rounding the numbers up in javascript?
Thanks for your assistance.
I have Adobe Acrobat X.Hi George, on the first script
var Q13 = +getField("Q13").value;
event.value = Q13 > 0 ? Q13, "";
It comes up with a SyntaxError: missing : in conditional express 2: at line 3
Do you know what that means and how to correct?
Thanks

Convert to Formula  what are the benefits?
Hello Experts,
Can anybody explain to me in simple words what this function does? I have read in SAP Bex tools (by SAP Press) that it enables some custom formatting, inserting columns and allows for additional calculations based off of the query key figures. I tried to convert a query to the formula mode, but I lost all query functionality (no BW menu on rightclick, not able to add characteristics etc.), and the query doesn't refresh. Moreover, I was not able to switch this mode off...
What are the benefits then?
I am still fairly new to BI 7.0 and currently testing it's functionalities, and I am getting more and more frustrated at it's complexity which seems to be no longer intuitive
