In Report Studio I have a List there I want to use a data item with a tuple with two other members and a measure. Hi Paul, I am using running count in my query to calculate function number of occuerence of the the data item. The toUTC command will convert a string In the current year I want the line to stop at previous week. Is it possible to achieve below requirement? As such, some analysis of the query and Global Variables must be done before you cgnos create the calculated member.

You can very easily make Current Year or Previous Year members, but those will not allow you to use the family functions. You cannot find the intersection between Quantity of Sales and Profit Margin, for instance. There are many reasons why you may want to interact with a Tree Prompt with JavaScript.

My measure is Empcount. It is possible to write comments in calculation formulas. Paul, I am using below expression to calculate the 3 day moving-average in my report, I have only Day level in my Time dimension. You could put a Layout Calculation on the far left column with the following expression: To the best of my knowledge there is no MDX function which will return the index of a specific member in a set the reverse of item.


Current context includes corresponding row and column dimension members of the report cell as well as selected page dimension members.

You might want the running aggregate on cohnos dimension but not another. Put the calculated member in the specified group in the Calculated members section of the dimension in the report builder.

If I understand correctly your crosstab shows the EmpCount for each A for each month. Dimension members has some default properties like. All of the queries were built on a very simple Power Cube.

Now for the wonderful news. Hierarchy generally optional, this explicitly sets the hierarchy of the calculated member. As a benchmark test, the client took the changes I made and applied them to the Compatible Query Mode. I tried to replace? The page will reload with the report in the dataset skin of report studio.


This ultimately makes the SQL match the standard. Nobody has any experience with multidmensional reporting and they are all used to working with framework manager pls excuse my possibly wrong terminology here.

Can u please suggest me some better idea to accomplish this. Create a Query Expression in the series with the following expression: Quite frequently you would like to filter set members using some condition.

You have a peer underneath the A node which shows the total for A for each month. Check out the report here: So far January 1 the fundtions would appear as:. Since moving totals are applied based on the sorting, you need to first run that calculation, then sort afterwards.


It must be dynamic no static sets, because finctions wants to go back every year and fix it? If you need to create a modified version of an existing pre-defined calculated member then copy its calculation formula and create a new calculated member with a different name and modify copied calculation formula for the new calculated member.

As far as I am aware they are using Cognos I tried using count,count distinct but none of them is giving me the correct result. Sorry, your blog cannot share posts by email.

I did use another DI from the beginning but that didn’t work so I tried to paste it directly into the “Current Month” DI but no difference Unlock the report and use that variable as the render variable for the value in the intersections. I was wondering if there is any way to implement running count on a dimension where the level has dognos suppressed in the cube.

You can perform arithmetic calculations also for calculated members in the other dimension. So you should have funcions series in your graph, total actual within set periodstodate. The expressions look fine. At present I am using only these 2 values in columns and months in rows. The generate function will evaluate the head descendants currentMember expression for each member in the years level.

Calculated members

But sometimes you need to pass a different argument to kdx functions. Dynamic Query Mode has a much stricter parser. Three dimensions and two measures.
