# How to represent a -1 numeric value with text?

Hi All,
Question: How do I get the value of negative one (-1) in a numeric column to display as "all"?
Background: For our lottery players, they are able to opt in to various automated alerts.  One column is an integer value representing one of five different thresholds for sending an alert: 10,000, 50,000, 100,000, 500,000, and -1.  The -1 value
actually represents all of the other 4 values, or simply "all thresholds," meaning "send me an alert at every one of these thresholds."
What is the best way to represent the -1 value in the cube?  A user won't understand that -1 is equivalent to "all choices".  I could change the view so that the column is a string instead of an integer, but I assume this is going to
affect the cube in a negative way, such as unexpected sorting, etc.
I asked our resident SSAS guy if a numeric value could be displayed (not read) as "all values" while actually storing the -1 value, but all he could suggest was changing the data type and using a case statement to replace -1 with "all values."
This does not seem like a fix to me.
Is there a way to make SSAS display a negative one value as "all choices" without changing the data type of the source column itself?
Thanks,
Eric B

Normally you would have a lookup on the number and a text value for the result displayed to users in the cube.

• How do I assign a numerical value to text cells in cartesian products?

Hi, this is more of a two part question.
Question 1
I need to be able to assign numerical values (Table Value £ of set up) to text cells (Set Up).
1. The table "Combinations" then uses the formula
IF(\$A3≤Information::\$B\$8, MOD(INT((ROW(cell)−3)÷PRODUCT(C\$1:\$G\$1)), B\$1), "")
to take info from the "Information" table and create all possible permutations of "Set Up"
2."List" is the printed list of "Combinations"
3."Output of list" concatenates the data from "List".
Question 2
4. How do I print out the total numerical value of the concatenated string of "Output of List" into Output (£) of List"?

• How do u convert a numeric value to char

hi,
how do u convert a numeric value NUMBER(22) to a character value.... like a to_char() function?
i've tried the CAST function it won't work.

Hi,
Use of CAST function will convert NUMBER to CHAR but it takes a lot of time if there are large number of recrods.
Syntax:
CAST(col_name AS char)
I have tried this, it worked fine for less records.
Are you getting any error while using cast function or while querying..
As far as I know it won't give error in these cases (if correct syntax used) but it will take very much time (depending on the number of records) while querying.

• Entering numeric values with suffixes in Labwindows CVI (e.g 100 kHz instead of 100e3 or 100000 )

is there any practical way of entering numeric values with suffixes in Labwindows CVI﻿ in order to prevent user from struggling with '0' es.

In LabVIEW there is another Display Format called "SI Notation" that is exactly what you're looking for.
Maybe you can add a feature request in CVI Idea Exchange Forum and ask NI to add this Display Format in CVI too.

• How does APEX check for null values in Text Fields on the forms?

Hello all,
How does APEX check for null values in Text Fields on the forms? This might sound trivial but I have a problem with a PL/SQL Validation that I have written.
I have one select list (P108_CLUSTER_ID) and one Text field (P108_PRIVATE_IP). I made P108_CLUSTER_ID to return null value when nothing is selected and assumed P108_PRIVATE_IP to return null value too when nothign is entered in the text field.
All that I need is to validate if P108_PRIVATE_IP is entered when a P108_CLUSTER_ID is selected. i.e it is mandatory to enter Private IP when a cluster is seelcted and following is my Pl/SQL code
Declare
v_valid boolean;
Begin
IF :P108_CLUSTER_ID is NULL and :P108_PRIVATE_IP is NULL THEN
v_valid := TRUE;
ELSIF :P108_CLUSTER_ID is NOT NULL and :P108_PRIVATE_IP is NOT NULL THEN
v_valid := TRUE;
ELSIF :P108_CLUSTER_ID is NOT NULL and :P108_PRIVATE_IP is NULL THEN
v_valid := FALSE;
ELSIF :P108_CLUSTER_ID is NULL and :P108_PRIVATE_IP is NOT NULL THEN
v_valid := FALSE;
END IF;
return v_valid;
END;
My problem is it is returning FALSE for all the cases.It works fine in SQL Command though..When I tried to Debug and use Firebug, I found that Text fields are not stored a null by default but as empty strings "" . Now I tried modifying my PL/SQL to check Private_IP against an empty string. But doesn't help. Can someone please tell me how I need to proceed.
Thanks

See SQL report for LIKE SEARCH I have just explained how Select list return value works..
Cheers,
Hari

• How do you share thousands of pictures with text and captions outside of PSE?  (PSE 4)

One of my dad’s retirement passions is family genealogy and old family pictures.  Several years ago I gave my family PSE 4.0 for Christmas so that we could each have backup copies of our dad’s pictures.  Usually once per year, I made backup copies of everything and emailed the DVDs to my brothers and sisters.  Everyone knows the basic PSE 4 functions and share our dad's enjoyment with the old family photos.
My problem is that my dad is running out of pictures to scan.  He wants to “share” or “show” his photos with others so that he can “borrow” their photo albums in order to scan their photos.  He plans to attend a hometown high school reunion later this fall.  He hopes to "collect" photo albums from cousins and classmates.  I have been struggling with this for several days without any good ideas.
The scanned pictures lack any text (added as a layer?) or captions.  Creating a slideshow (on my dad’s computer is slow).  Also, a slideshow doesn’t let others select individual pictures to save from the slide show
He has old pictures pre-PSE 4 that allowed him to add captions directly to the picture when it was scanned.  I never liked this approach as it "destroyed" the actual picture but these old pictures are more easily shared as individual pictures.
How do you share thousands of pictures with text and captions outside of PSE?  Can you save or export a composite picture with all the layers?

I think it is one of the printer option screens that gives me the choice of tabbed 4x6. All of the choices specifiy HP or Other so I am pretty sure it is printer software that offers me this choice.
Make sure your image has a 4x6 aspect ratio. I have been quite happy with the tabbed 4x6. Just need to remember to load the paper with the tab last.
So, in elements you set to 4x6, in printer options you should be able to choose 4x6 tabbed paper.

• ABAP-based web service returns numeric values with leading zeros

Hi SOA experts,
I have created a web service out of an ABAP function module. Beside other values, this service returns a list of document numbers. All of these numeric values are returned by the web service with leading zeros, but we do want these values w/o leading zeros.
Any ideas how I can tell the web service to not print any leading zeros?
Kind regards, Matthias
PS: The according function module does not print any leading zeros for the numeric values

hi,
just a guess: I'd try to use I instead of NUMC for the document numbers.
NUMC is no number but a character string with numeric characters only. only some display routines in SAP know that this string of numerals represents a number and omit leading zeroes.
my 2 cents,
anton

• Handling numeric values with OCI8

What's the best approach to handle numeric values (more specifically, decimal and floating point values) obtained with oci_fetch_assoc() and the like? I've set NLS_LANG to SPANISH_SPAIN.WE8ISO8859P15 because I want to store Spanish language data using the ISO-8859-15 charset but that has the side effect of making SELECT 3.14 FROM DUAL become *"3,14"*. I can think of several solutions:
* Avoid PHP type juggling; instead, write a custom PHP function to parse formatted floats from strings
* Set NLS_LANG to SPANISH_AMERICA.WE8ISO8859P15
* Use PEAR MDB2 abstraction layer, which apparently ignores NLS_LANG
... but they all look like newbie workarounds...
The server runs Oracle 10g.

Alvaro, you can pick and choose decimal separator and group separator. The parameter is NLS_NUMERIC_CHARACTERS. Here is how it works:
SQL> alter session set NLS_NUMERIC_CHARACTERS=',.';
Session altered.
SQL> select 3+1/7 from dual;
3+1/7
3,14285714
SQL> alter session set NLS_NUMERIC_CHARACTERS='.,';
Session altered.
SQL> select 3+1/7 from dual;
3+1/7
3.14285714
If you don't want to do it through Oracle, PHP has pre-defined NumberFormatter class, described here:
http://hr.php.net/manual/en/class.numberformatter.php. There is also a very useful class for the international date formats but that's another story.

• Given a string, how do you find the numeric value in sparse ring?

Situation: I receive the string value of the sparse ring, and a control reference to the same type of control, but not the control that sourced the string. How can I convert the string, into the actual numeric value of the ring? For example:
Using the "VISA Select Event Type" ring (Functions -> Instrument I/O -> VISA -> Advanced -> Event -> Select Event Type.ctl), lets say I get the string "ServiceRequest" how do I convert that into 1073684491, the actual value of the ring?
This is a rework of an existing function that worked fine with "normal" rings.
Thanks.

Unfortunately this method will not work, its a generic routine that must be able to take any ring, so I can't hardwire the cases to known outputs. And, of course, searching the array of Strings[] will just find me a useless index.
My interm solution is this:
1) pick a small, but likely range of possible values for the ring
2) iterate through these values, assigning each one in turn to ring
3) read the RingText property to see if it matches the passed string
4) if it does, then exit. If it doesn't keep looping.
5) if no value produces a matching string, declare defeat (raise an error or produce other output that indicates a match could not be found).
The routine only runs in the UI so I am not too concerned about the time delay this method will i
mpose, but I would greatly appreciate a smoother solution.

• How do I apply a numerical value to a word in numbers

For example - decision maker = .75

What is the relationship between the 'word' and the numerical value?
If it's a mathematical relationship, your use a formula.
If it's arbitrary, then you need a table showing the value associates with each word (or in this case, phrase).
Formula in column B of Main:
B2: =VLOOKUP(A,Lookup :: A:B,2)
Filled down to B10.
To avoid the error messages in B6 to B10, Enclose the formula in an error trap as below:

• How do I add numeric values as text in XML??

HI,
So, I've developed a 3d carousel using this tutorial and the  XML, and customized the XML in Dreamweaver.
http://www.gotoandlearn.com/play?id=33
Now,  I've got the carousel set up exactly the way I would like, but the only  trouble, is how do I add numeric values as the text for the xml file???
Here's an example to the working carousel and where text is loaded for each item on it.  (put your sound on mute if you don't want to hear the video)
http://iongeo.com/collaboration_test_dev/video_arctic_imaging.html
For  example, in my XML, if I would like the text to be "3d images", when I  export the FLA, only "d images" comes through because the numeric  values can't be added as the text for the tooltip.
Does anyone  have any ideas?
Here is an example of how the XML is loaded into  the .swf - the text loads great, but just not the numeric characters.
The  same story can be said for special characters, I would like to know how  to add a "&" sign too.
<icons>
<icon  image="images/Subsalt_E_P_Partnerships.png" tooltip="3D Images"  content="Text Copy.">
</icon>
</icons>
Any  help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you.

Hi Randy,
Thanks a lot for the reply.  Your post got me thinking that it's actually a flash problem, as the actual descriptor text shows 123,etc and "&".
The trouble is that the icons are dynamically loaded from the XML to movie clips on the flash file.  I've asked the flash forum to see if they could take a look.
Thanks again.

• How do I allocate a numerical value to a 5 part likert scale question

I have a survey questionaire and the 15 questions are all arranged on a 5 part 'Liket scale' of strongly agree to strongly disagree.
How do I allocate numerical values to each question response?
I don't want the respondents to see the scoring.
The reason I need to do this is some response lines are reverse scored. That is to say some lines would be scored 1 to 5 and other lines 5 to 1.
I think this feature is available on survey monkey.
Is it available in Acrobat X Pro or Formscentral?
Kind regards
spreid1

Hi,
You can assign numerical responses to the likert answers as follows:
1. Go into the response table and select the "Table" toolbar button:
2. Select the header for your Likert questions in the response table.
3. Click the "Choices" button on the toolbar and select "Edit choice list..."
4. Select the checkbox for "Assign data values to choices".
5. Enter the choice data values in the right-hand column.
