Variable Offsets are working only partially

Hello experts, at first I thought that an offset I placed on a variable for 0FISCPER was not working. I am trying to do a report which gives me the value of couple of Key Figure "Earnings", for a certain Fiscal Period and this same Period but for the last year. That is (please consider each "/" as a blank space):
////////////              Earnings  //////////////////               Earnings
///////////           on FiscPer   ///////////        on LastFiscPer
///////////           (E.G. 01.2008)  ////////      (E.G. 01.2007)
Char1 /////////         $       ////////////////////////////                      $
Char2 ////////         $       /////////////////////////////                      $
Char3 ///////         $        //////////////////////////////                     $
I am using a variable that I created, which takes a user input. On Selection "Earnings on FiscPer" I placed the variable with no offset. On Selection "Earnings on LastFiscPer" I placed the same variable, with a -12 offset.
The problem I have is that it is not working. The offset is not working, it just displays the value for the Fiscal Period given by the user, not last year's Fiscal Period. However, the funny thing is that if I place the offset as +12 and give as input las year's Fiscal Period, the offset works and displays the value for the next year's Fiscal Period. So the variable offset works only on one side, with possitive offset values. I have tried different approaches (some coming from other posts from this forum) but I cannot get the offset to work with negative values.
How can I manage to get this to work? Any ideas?

Hi Pedro,
i will try to answer your questions:
a) range of values instead of individual value for variables:
-> if u use a range of values for one KF u will always get cumulated values for this range
-> for example: 0FISCPER3 with range 001-016 and 0FISCYEAR 2008 -> u get the sum of all periods for year 2008
Idea : i have a query where i have a KF with a range. I defined a solid start period (0FISCPER3) for example 001 and have an input ready variable for end period, called "Period to". Also u have input ready variable for 0FISCYEAR. This KF shows me the sum until the defined end period for a user defined year.
b) 0FISCPER3 in lines or columns:
IF u now drop 0FISCPER3 in free characteristics in query designer, u are able to do a breakdown in BEx Analyzer for 0FISCPER3 in lines or columns.
1) u have created your KF as i descriped in IDEA
2) u have dropped 0FISCPER as free characteristics in query designer
3) At BEx Analyzer u go to query properties -> put 0FISCPER3 in columns (-> maybe u change with properties display options for 0FISCPER to text -> it dispays for 0032008 -> Mar 2008)
4) Press ok
5)  Right click on your KF and choose "Add drill down according to" -> Choose "posting period" (0Fiscper3)
6) Do a horizontal drilldown for posting period with drag and drop
-> Now u have a drill down for posting period in your KF, but also for all other KF too
-> To avoid this u can customize workbook settings
1) Change to design mode
2) open properties for analysis grid and disable display options for "Hierarchy icons"
Another way is to delete the hierachy icon
-> u now only see a drilldown with posting period for these KF u wanted to have a drilldown to.
If u now only want to see posting periods which have values and disable all which have no values, u can activate zero suppression for lines and columns in query properties.
Voila, u have a worbook which now shows for your KF all availble posting periods in one year without creating 16 monthly key figures. In addition u can change the inner year range of summation of period values
Hope it helps

    I had the same problem in my client. The solution is you need to publish the URL to the internet and maintain the host name at the hosting server.
    If possible talk with the IT Network guys and they can help you.

  • Variable offset not working

    Hello Experts -
    I have a structure and a variable with single-value entry. The variable is on 0CALMONTH.
    If user input 06/2007, I wanted to see information for 06/2007, 05/2007, 04/2007. I'm using a variable offset. But my report output is always for 06/2007. I have data for 05/2007 and 04/2007 also.
    In the column header, it shows 04/2007, 05/2007 and 06/2007 but there's not data.
    Can someone please help me with this? What am I doing wrong?

    If you can see the offset result in header then it will surely work for data also.
    If u have a key figure amount.
    Then you need to restrict this figure for user inputed months variable - offset.  i.e different restricted figures for different months.
    I hope this is clear to you, if not then do let me know.

  • Stylish themes for Tumblr works only partially on Firefox 30.0.

    I've read plenty of forum threads but none of them solves my problem. Recently I updated Firefox to lastest version and it turned out that my installed Tumblr themes loads only partially - background changes but everything else remain the same as in Tumblr default style. It happens to all themes and Stylish is compatybile with Firefox 30.0. I've run FF in safe mode, I unchecked using hardware acceleration as someone suggested in another thread and basically nothing changed. Does anyone know the cause? It's not that stylish doesn't work at all and that's the problem.

    You can try these steps in case of issues with web pages:
    You can reload web page(s) and bypass the cache to refresh possibly outdated or corrupted files.
    *Hold down the Shift key and left-click the Reload button
    *Press "Ctrl + F5" or press "Ctrl + Shift + R" (Windows,Linux)
    *Press "Command + Shift + R" (Mac)
    Clear the cache and cookies only from websites that cause problems.
    "Clear the Cache":
    *Firefox/Tools > Options > Advanced > Network > Cached Web Content: "Clear Now"
    "Remove Cookies" from sites causing problems:
    *Firefox/Tools > Options > Privacy > "Use custom settings for history" > Cookies: "Show Cookies"
    Start Firefox in <u>[[Safe Mode|Safe Mode]]</u> to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem.
    *Switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance
    *Do NOT click the Reset button on the Safe Mode start window

  • Wireless sync works only partially

    I'm running IOS 5 on an iPhone 3GS. I have wireless syncing set up and have followed the instructions carefully, at least I think so. The problem is that I want to sync only one playlist from iTunes onto the iPhone. The name of the playlist does indeed sync, but the playlist is empty on the phone. The computer in the equation is a black MacBook running OS 10.6.8.
    By the way, the sync method I am using is to have Sync Music checked on the device's music tab, and I have a check by the playlist I want to sync. Is this not the correct method?
    One more piece of information to add. I just noticed that in iTunes, when I click on the device, I do see the playlist listed there, just like it is on the phone, but all the songs on the playlist do show up in the iTunes screen, but they are greyed out. I am totally confused.
    Any help would be very appreciated.

    I'm having a similar problem.
    Running Snow Leopard on my MacBook Pro, and with a new iphone 4S: I have wifi sync enabled, and it goes through the steps, but after it does a wifi sync the new podcasts that were just transferred to the iphone appear as grayed-out titles only. They don't really transfer over.
    Any help on this? I hope I don't have to upgrade to Lion, since my MBP is too old to do that. But this is also supposed to work on Windows machines, right?

  • My recently added tabs are restored only partially after restarting Firefox 4

    I changed the following
    At some point after that in the following sequence:
    1. most of recently added tabs and some windows didn't restore after Firefox restart
    2. some recently deleted tabs disappeared from "recently closed tabs" in history
    3. ''recently closed windows'' in history disappeared
    Have anybody changed this and got similar problems? Imho, it's history storage related.

    Are you running Firefox in "Permanent Private Browsing" mode?
    You enter Private Browsing mode if you select: Tools > Options > Privacy > History: Firefox will: "Never Remember History"<br />
    To see all History and Cookie settings, choose: Tools > Options > Privacy, choose the setting <b>Firefox will: Use custom settings for history</b>
    * Uncheck: [ ] "Permanent Private Browsing mode"
    It is also possible that there is a problem with the files [ sessionstore.js] and sessionstore.bak in the [ Profile Folder]
    Delete [ sessionstore.js] and sessionstore.bak in the [ Profile Folder]
    * Help > Troubleshooting Information > Profile Directory: Open Containing Folder
    If you see files sessionstore-##.js with a number in the left part of the name like sessionstore-1.js then delete those as well.
    Deleting sessionstore.js will cause App Tabs and Tab Groups to get lost, so you will have to create them again (make a note).

  • Variable Offset for Fiscal Year Not Working

    My fiscal year variable offsets are not working. I have an input-ready query setup with 3 restricted key figures.
    1) Restricted by FY Variable 0P_FYEAR, 0VTYPE = 20, KF = 0QUANTITY
    2) Restricted by FY Variable 0P_FYEAR (variable offset -1), 0VTYPE = 20, KF =0QUANTITY
    3) Restricted by FY Variable 0P_FYEAR (Variable offset -2), 0VTYPE = 10, KF= 0QUANTITY
    I have in my filter selections Fiscal Year Variant = K4
    Rows have 0STKEYFIG
    Columns have 0FISCPER3 (Posting Period) and the 3 Restricted Key Figures.
    When I run the query, the offsets are not being accepted.  Only the selected FY variable.  The first and second restricted kfs show 2009 data and not 2009, 2008 as it should.  Has anyone else had issues with this?  I am not using 0FISCPER but 0FISCPER3 but I am not sure how that would make a differnce.
    I have created new variables, tried to do positive offsets, tried to include and exclude values int the filter to no avail.

    I kept my variable offsets in the restricted key figure and they aren't working.  When I just put fiscal year in the column and put the 0P_FYEAR and 0P_FYEAR-1 I get the 2 columns and the offsets filter through just fine.  It seems to only be messing up when they are in the restricted key figures themselves.

  • Render Work Area only partially completes?

    Hello everyone,
    I have searched the Forum but not found an answer or discussion on this problem.
    My problem is that Render Work Area only partially completes, i.e. if I have several clips in the work area (all showing yellow in the status area) and I apply transitions or effects to several of them, such that the modified segments show red in the status area, I expect to be able to Render Work Area [ENTER] and have it render all the segments that are red.  But it doesn't.  It renders the first few red segments then stops.  I have to manually hit ENTER several times to get it to render all the pieces.
    I'm pretty sure this is not how it is supposed to work.  In previous versions of Premiere, it would render all red segments in one go.
    Does anyone know what I need to do to make it render everything in one pass?
    I did find this post on a different forum: ssue
    But no solution was ever reported.  The person just re-installed on a new machine and the problem did not appear on the new machine.  But I don't have another machine to try this on.  My machine is a Windows 7 64-bit i7.  I am running Premiere Pro CS5 5.0.0.  My footage is from a Canon 5D Mark II, 1080p, 29.97fps.  The footage natively displays and previews fine.
    Thank you very much in advance for any help you can give.
    Best wishes,

    You should install the Premiere Pro CS5 (5.0.3) update. The recent updates fix a lot of problems.

  • Variable offset for calday is not working - urgent

    Dear experts,
    I need to create RKF on PO count by 0calday. I need PO count for last 3 cal days in columns.
    I have a standard variable on 0calday, characteristic type, single value, mandatory.
    I have created 3 RKF -having offesets:  0calday, 0calday-1, 0calday-2.
    I can see three columns with date headers correcly.
    But I see only data in 0calday column. I have data for previous 2 days, but those columns are not showing any data.
    Please help me in fixing it.

    When I am trying to change variable during navigation: I am getting following error
    The Can be changed in query navigation property has been set for variable Z_OD, characteristic 0CALDAY. However, the variable is used in the query in such a way, that the system is unable to apply this change-option.
    This can, for example, occur under the following conditions:
    Characteristic 0CALDAY is filtered by additional restrictions (the restrictions must be joined using an OR-connection)
    A second characteristic, which is restricted by a variable, is compounded to charcteristic 0CALDAY.
    Variable Z_OD is a hierarchy node variable, but the hierarchy has not been determined uniquely.
    A variable can be changed during query navigation only if it is used exclusively in a drilldown-characteristic, and there are no further restrictions to the characteristic other than this variable. There must be no additional characteristics with variables compounded to the characteristic you are working with. For variables for hierarchy nodes, the hierarchy must be determined uniquely and agree with the set display hierarchy.
    Also, if the characteristic value is moved, for example (Z_OD - 1), the variable is no longer able to be changed when navigating queries.
    System Response
    The entry Z_OD Can be changed during query navigation is not applied.
    Check the query definition.

    What video format (including embedded audio) is able to be viewed and heard by both OSX Lion users and Windows users?
    You have to make a distinction between the container format (eg, AVI, MKV) and the video/audio format (eg, DIVX). For instance, without additional software, QuickTime can play .avi files with the IndeoVideo codec, but not .avi file with the DivX codec). Further, you have to make the distinction between what can be played using an independent player, eg, QuickTime Player, and what can be played within the presentation software (Keynote or PowerPoint).
    You can refer to
    < 6-8c76-12cb3a0063ee>
    for suggestions. In practice, for presentation clips, I think you're limited to MPEG-2 and MPEG-4. I don't know if an additional MPEG-2 QuickTime component is required under Lion, you'll have to check that yourself. So, in the end, it's MPEG-4. Both Keynote and PowerPoint Win/Mac should be able to handle it.
    can anyone suggest a safe application that I can purchase from the apple app store that will allow me to convert video files
    What's a 'safe application'? And why do you have to buy it from the App Store (yuck!)?
    Handbrake, as mentioned by X423424X, is free and works very well. There are probably others, too.
    this forum is the best place to learn
    Perhaps, but it may not be the place to get answers to this question. Try a PowerPoint Mac user forum, they would have more experience in these x-platform issues. This forum is oriented more towards the hardware side of the MBP platform.

    iCloud should still help you reduce some hard drive space. Just select "optimize" in the icloud tab in Mac Photo App preferences.
    Granted, not the same as completely offloading your library to a back-up drive at your location.
    Good Luck!

  • I made the mistake of resetting my iPod to factory defaults. Now it will only partially sync to my music library. I continually get an error message saying that certain songs are not authorized for my computer. Any ideas?

    I made the mistake of resetting my iPod to factory defaults. Now it will only partially sync to my music library. I continually get an error message saying that certain songs are not authorized for my computer, although they are in the iTunes library on the computer and will play. It's these songs that won't transfer to the iPod. I have deauthorized and re-authorized the computer but no joy. Any ideas?

    Hello there DesertRat71,
    I was thinking that some of the songs in your library may have been purchased under a different apple id. You have already done the first thing I would have done by de authorizing and re authorizing. To verify this, highlight one of the songs that will not sync over and use File>Get Info. Here is the help menu link for it if you need it help://bookmark=' th=English.lproj#itns2937'
    In the Summary section there will be an Apple ID entry. If it shows something different than what you are currently using then I recommend signing into the Apple ID it shows and authorizing the computer for that one as well.
    All the best,
