XREF FUNCTION IN ESSBASE

Hi
I am trying to utilize the functionality of the Xref function in one of the modules of my project.
could anyone let me know if xref works fine if my target database resides on a different server and on a different enviorment than my Source database.
if yes what performance issues could i be facing in the process for the same.
Thanks
NJ

from docs: YES
Data source: the database that is queried by the @XREF function. This database may be remote (that is, on a different machine than the data target).
But never tried ...you should be first person :)

  • How to use the xref function in essbase

    please give some examples

    You have to go through DBAG for more info on @XREF
    here is example of script we use
    SET UPDATECALC OFF;
    FIX(members in employee, members in entity)
    SET CREATENONMISSINGBLK ON;
    "Account_1" = @XREF(_Location alias, "PRODUCT");
    ENDFIX
    what we do is pull data from account_1 of databse 2 to database 1.
    you should specify location alias in database before executing this script.
    good luck.

  • XREF function Usage

    Hello,I have a requirement in a Master cube to have KPI from each Child cube/Detialed cube(I call it)(otherwise key measure) to populated in the Master cube. I was trying to retrieve the data ..with each measurable data retrieved from different detialed cubes by writing @XREF function. This works for only one location Alias.like only for one Database. My requirement I connect to different Databases using different aliases & get the data for each measure--- This is not working.. it just works for 1 connect to particular Database.Is there a way to fix this problem or Essbase at present, cannot pull in data from different databases with many @XREF in a single Target cube where different members are declared Dynamic calc & with @XREF function.Any ideas welcome!!Essbaseuser123

    I'm not sure I understand the problem - you can create many location aliases, but a single @XREF function can only use one of them at a time. If you have many different measures, you could put dynamic @XREF formulas on them - each one using the location alias that it needs. Are you saying that this does not work?Another option would be to use a member of another dimension, and use IF statements to figure out which measure you are looking at, and call the according @XREF.Hope that helps.Regards,Jade----------------------------------Jade ColeSenior Business Intelligence ConsultantClarity [email protected]

  • Error while creating Custom Defined Functions in Essbase

    <p>Hi All,<br>I am trying to create CDF(Custom Defined Functions) in Essbase. Iwant to create a function which take list of child member andreturn the first child. For this, i have created a java file called"ChildAccess.java" which contains the following code:<br>public class ChildAccess<br>{<br>public static char GetFirstMember(char [] members)<br>{<br>return members[0];<br>}<br>}<br>I have compiled and made jar file called"ChildAccess.jar" and pasted it at"ARBORPATH/java/udf".

  • To expand the filter functions in essbase

    Hi All,
    Please help me to expand the filter functions in essbase like @LIST, @ IDESCENDENTS, @DESCENDENTS , @REMOVE. My expected resulted is the member names in the outline that is indicated by the filter.
    This is to get the member names to which a filter definition represents.
    For example
    If A has three children A1, A2 and A3 and i have a function @IDESCENDENTS(A), then i need a result as A1, A2 and A3.
    This is just an example, I am trying for complex one.

    Go through
    http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E12032_01/doc/epm.921/html_techref/funcs/funclist.htm
    There are many commands to select members in a dimension. You can select particular generation using @genmbs anr level members using @levmbre or you can use @relative. You can tag uda if you want to select members randomly.
    Technical reference is the best place to start about calculation commands.

  • Problem with time series functions against Essbase

    Hello all,
    I'm having problems with displaying correct results when using AGO function in OBIEE. I'm using Essbase 9.3.1 and OBIEE 10.1.3.4.1. Logical column named MAGO1 is created in repository like this: IFNULL( AGO("Measure01", Time.Month, 1), 0). In Answers when I use columns Measure01,MAGO1,Time.Month with filter just on Time.Month column results are OK. When I put another filter, for example Dim1.Gen2,Dim1, MAGO1 returns zero as a result. But when I put Dim1.Gen2,Dim1 also as a column and as a filter results are OK. I don't want to have Dim1.Gen2,Dim1 as a column but just in a filter. Also hiding column is not an option. I want to have grouped results and not multiple rows for one month if I remove filter Dim1.Gen2,Dim1. Filter is selected on prompt in dashboard and can be some value from Dim1.Gen2,Dim1 or All Choices. Reason for this is that I'm using this answers report as a data source for BI Publisher so additional formatting on answers report isn't helpful.
    I am suspecting that something is wrong with hierarchy it time dimension or other dimensions. Or maybe MDX is not generated right ? If you need more details regarding my repository or configuration please feel free to ask. Any help is greatly appreciated.
    Thanks,
    D.

    I am using BI Publisher and Answers report as data source. Making changes like hiding column or displaying results as pivot table won't help in this case.
    Anyway I did discover something else. When I put in report logical columns with ago function they return correct results. But when I add additional logical column with todate function all logical columns with ago and todate function return zero as a result. Also this happens only when result is more than one row. If you have only one row, for example grand total level of dimension, than result is OK, but if you have more rows on a lower level than zero values appear.
    Some columns that are used in filter do not appear as columns in report. This is the main problem. If I put all columns that are filtered in report than the result is OK. But I don't want to do this because I want to have option to select values on dashboard prompt on different levels.
    Hope this narrows the problem.
    Thanks,
    D.

  • Error Using DataExport function in Essbase

    Hi there,
    I'm using Hyperion Essbase version 9.3.1.
    And rite now I'm trying to export data in Essbase by the new CalcScript function DataExport directly to SQL server.
    I have 11 dimensions in my Essbase application. I did create 10 fields in SQL server for storing members information and 12 other fields for periodic data. Just, the time when I export data, all the rows returned with only 7 fields for members information and 12 data fields for periodic data.
    Can anyone help? Please help!
    Best regards,
    Antony

    Antony,
    So when you use a calc script like the below:
    SET DATAEXPORTOPTIONS
         DataExportLevel ALL ;
         DataExportDynamicCalc OFF ;
         DataExportRelationalFile ON ;
         DataExportOverwriteFile ON ;
    DATAEXPORT "File" "," "b:\exports\jan.txt" "#MI";
    Your export works just as you want? (I realize you have lots of other logic, but for the sake of argument use the above).
    And then when you take the exact same code except that the DATAEXPORT command now looks like:
    SET DATAEXPORTOPTIONS
         DataExportLevel ALL ;
         DataExportDynamicCalc OFF ;
         DataExportRelationalFile ON ;
         DataExportOverwriteFile ON ;
    DATAEXPORT "DSN" "cur_sale" "newyork" "admin" "password";
    You don't get the same results?
    I get the same results regardless. Yes, one is written to a table as defined by the DSN and the other a text file but the contents are exactly the same.
    Are you seeing different rows/columns? If so, that would either suggest your table is somehow limiting what gets written to the RDBMS (it would be nice to think that Essbase would log this as an error/fail) or there is a bug in the export. I have not come across this issue.

  • AIA XREF Functions in Jdeveloper

    Hi,
    I am using XREFs and DVMs in my flows using AIA 3.0. I am not able to see the functions like generate-guid(), functions related to XREF and DVM in the XSLT designer. I remember having installed a AIAXpathFunctions patch for JDeveloper in SOA 10g.
    Is there a similar patch available for 11g or how do we use these functions in XSLs ? Have the definition of the function changed and can we use it the same way we used in AIA 2.0/SOA 10g.
    Cheers,
    - AR

    This is the content from the latest Installation Guide
    JDeveloper enables you to modify AIA delivered content or develop and deploy new AIA custom content. AIA uses special XPath functions and it is necessary to import these into the JDeveloper library. You can import these using either of the following procedures:
    - If you download the AIA plugin from update center to use AIA service constructor, the aia.jar is automatically made available for you.
    - In JDeveloper, navigate to Tools, Preferences, SOA and add the library aia.jar. The aia.jar is available under AIA_HOME/lib directory
    As per the first option, Robert is asking you to use the Service constructor but because this is EAP, we havent made it available in the update center.

  • CDF function in essbase

    HI,
    I'm planning to use a cdf function in my essbase outline -
    '@JgetMonthNumberWorkDays(2009, 1, "aus")'
    Now my question is..can we pass other essbase functions within this cdf and make it work ?
    e.g. Will something like below work?
    '@JgetMonthNumberWorkDays(@CURRMBR (year), @CURRMBR (period), "aus")'
    where year dimension is 2010,2011 and so on
    and period dimension is jan,feb and so on.

  • Calc Function in Essbase

    Can some on explain the below expression what exactly it returns as a result.i don't know this function "@JNthMbr" and "@Name".
    I know that @Member function returns with the name of the member.
    (@ISMBR(@Member(@JNthMbr(@Name(@Descendants("Year")), 1))))

    What's in your Years dimension? FY10, FY11, FY12, etc? Or 2010, 2011, 2012? Or Jan, Mar, Feb? Or Jan FY10, Mar FY10, Apr FY10, etc?
    I am guessing that you have a Custom Defined Function (CDF) at play here with the @JNthMbr. I did a quick search at the samplecode.oracle.com Date CDF and don't see that function, so perhaps you have one custom written (they are called CDFs after all).
    @NAME converts a member name to a string which I'll bet the CDF requires. If you look at the 11.1.1.3 example, it even shows passing a member name to a CDF. See: http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/E12825_01/epm.111/esb_techref/name.htm
    Once the CDF is done, it needs to convert that string back into a member name. That's what @MEMBER does. See: http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/E12825_01/epm.111/esb_techref/member.htm
    And then there's an @ISMBR test to see what the member value is. I'm a little unclear why all of the trouble was gone through as the members of the dimension can just be tested like this: IF(@ISMBR(membername)) So why all the complexity? No one writes a CDF for fun (okay, some people do, but not many).
    Is the code figuring out a month based on a quarter? Or a Year Total? That's hard to guess without knowing what your Years hierarchy looks like.
