repeng_error_en_71 wis 00071 while creating conditional format rule

Hi

I am facing repeng_error_en_71 wis 00071 when creating conditional format rule in webi

I am creating rule using formula editor

e.g Formula: if [Obj]=[Obj] then [Obj] and it throws an error.

however it works when I simply write if 1=1 then 1

Is there anything wrong with Object comparison?

Thanks,

Amit

    Hi Amit,

    Conditional formatting does not have any formula bar to write If/Else condition. Can you provide screen-shot of what exactly you are doing? Also screenshot of error would be helpful.

      Hey Rakesh even thats what my belief is about Obj=Obj.

      I was trying few things with alerters where condtions provide very restricted scope. So I went to Formula editor to try my luck and there it was every time when I treid the same thing.

      However it works fine with normal comparison without formula editor.

      So was wondering if anything wrong with my way of comparison.

    Again as I believe comparing same object or 2 objects directly using equal to operation never worked in BO.

    And when using normal selection(without formula) options to compare two objects or similar objects.

    In background it might be doing n*n comparisons or something like that, not sure though.

    Any insights are highly appreciated.

      Hello,

      I have a similar issue and I followed the online help example:

      If <Main Condition> is true, Apply <Main Format>

      ElseIf <Second Condition> is true, Apply <Second Format>

      ElseIf <Third Condition> is true, Apply <Third Format>

      ElseIf...

      Else Apply <Default Format>

      I could add my formular to compare a condition like [value1]*1,05 >[value2] is true, Apply <Main Format>

      Else Apply <Default Format>

      The editor tells me, my formula is correct, but I receive same error message.

      What is expected for <Main Format>?

      Thanks,

      Monika
