I am working on a simple crosstab report using relational data. I am not an expert and this is just a suggession. You could try to put the macro in another Data Item and then reference that new DI from your tuple.

I am using running count in my query to calculate the number of occuerence of md the data item.

TM1 -Specific MDX functions

This allows for much more efficient reports, while still providing you with the results you expect. Hi Paul, Could you please help me with the following requirement: For the most part a standard equals join is pretty much all I ever need, except for that one time in a year where I absolutely need to have a non-standard join.

As such, some analysis of the query and Global Variables must be done before you can create the calculated member. The concept of a running-total is relational concept. Difficult problem, but not insurmountable. cobnos

I wan to show the cumilative chart for all weeks in the previous year. This will only effect the prompt after the page has been loaded. Sometimes you might need to convert string expression to an integer, a decimal or a date expression for example, to convert Highrise custom field string value to corresponding type to be able to use it in further calculations.


What you can do instead is reference the YTD as the default value in the prompt macro: I am able to validate my report now after making the required change as per your suggession. So we can use the setTimeout function to wait milliseconds before getting the data.

functipns CurrentMember when creating e. For example, you would like to get a sum or an average value of some measure over a selected set of dimension members. Rewrite the expressions so they looks like: One of my clients was running into a problem with migrating their reports to the DQM.

Now you know how to navigate to individual dimension members. Or can this be solved functinos another way? Knowing this, how do you do a running-total in reverse? Now that you know how to reference other existing measures and other dimension members we can create a simple arithmetic calculations. In a similar way, you can aggregate functioms complex set expressions. Till this point I get correct result. But the calculated fileld ‘XYZ’ is still populating with the rolling total. Register with the Cognoise forum here: When attempting to use the running aggregate functions on a cube you cannot guarantee consistent results, drilldowns might behave unexpectedly, and the entire processing time is increased as the resultset must be processed locally.


Can u please suggest me some better idea to accomplish this. If you would like to select a set as a range of sequential dimension level members then you can specify the first and the last member and use: It is not coming in the crosstab. I have prompts on this report functoons are working fine all the other columns excpet for this rolling total calculated column.

Calculated members

Please ignore my above question. Please watch demo videos in this documentation page to see in action typical definitions and usage of calculated members.

The next demand is to see the running total for the previous year. User now wants to schedule the report where timeframe is YTD.

However, it may take a couple of weeks since we are entering the holiday season. October 27, by CognosPaul 54 Comments. I even replaced the timestampmask with a string “” and that works as well: This tutorial will explain how to define new calculated members using MDX calculation formulas.
