If Cognos Transformer were to perform its own consolidation pass, there would not be sufficient detail in the PowerCube records to perform the before rollup calculation correctly. PowerCubes in Production Envi For information about managing data formats, copying data format information, or editing the data format configuration file, see the Configuration Manager User Guideor contact your administrator.

If you intend to delete inactive categories, we recommend that you advise your consumers so that they can remove those categories, or members, from their reports when they are directly referenced. For example, level of inventory is recorded for a specific product, at the same warehouse, in the same year, on different dates.

Page – Creating a bw query in sap business expl Sample Data Sources Cognos Transformer includes several sample data sources. You can print the report and you can also open it in PowerPlay Web Explorer if you want to explore the report further. When you distribute your report over the Web, Impromptu Web Reports shows drill-through columns as hypertext links.

Page Cognos Transformer model. You can verify Cognos Transformer object names and identifiers on the Windows interface. Page v Your model can only have one time dimension. In addition, source values that conform with the business keys in other applications used in IBM Cognos BI will have the best success rates when used with drill-through applications and other business intelligence applications. Procedure You can verify Cognos Transformer object names and identifiers on the Windows interface.


E Option, F Option This option specifies the user-defined preference file or files to use. Absolute Converts numbers to their unsigned value. For example, it is invalid to have lunar years and calendar months in the same drill-down path.

Depending on the nature of the change, you may need to modify the format of the report data item and re-save the report, or modify the setting in the data format configuration file. Union of Custom Views For the sole purpose of migration from IBM Cognos Series 7 security to an alternate security provider, Cognos Transformer allows you to place security objects from different namespaces within a single custom view.

If a link has more than one possible drill-through target, Impromptu Web Reports displays an intermediate page that shows the possible drill targets.

Page – Generating Categories from a Specified D There are several benefits to authoring and storing the drill-through paths in IBM Cognos Connection instead of in the Cognos Transformer model: This allows Cognos Transformer to directly associate the values from trannsformer column with the level.

Report users can drill down only to the parent of the cloaked category.

Order Categories Within Levels Product Type as the Order by column, and specify that categories be sorted in ascending order. Browse to select a dimensional package and click Finish.

If you change the rollup type after importing the data into Cognos Transformer, your results will not be valid.

The Check Model tool has detected a condition in which a dimension view has caused one or more categories to become the lowest-level active categories in a Appendix C. If the level you want to associate with the column contains only unique category values, select the Unique check box on the Source tab of the Level property sheet.

In the Level name box, type a name for the parent of yser convergence level in the new drill-down path. This format allows them to operate with zero, one, two, or more arguments: Click the Time tab.

When modeling on the dimension map, you can v create a dimension map that reflects the structure of your dimensional data source v drag a column from the Data Sources list guidr the dimension map to create a new level or dimension If the parent report is not run as a burst report, users view the report as the user class that you used to run the report.

The name you specify for the levels uer match the source column name. In the time dimension, if Cognos Transformer generates a category named Invalid Dates, it is likely that the date format is not defined, or not properly defined, for the values in the source file. You can fransformer up drill-through access so that users can view more detailed information for a value in a report, from. However, these products can also be configured to use the data format configuration file.
