Table Headings issue - Local Formulas


I have a report which has the following settings


Accounts A - member and children

Accounts B - member and children

Accounts C - member only


Static as per screenshot below

Local Members (rows)

Blank Line - Attached to member Accounts A (after)

Area B Heading - Attached to "Blank Line" local member (after)

Blank Line After Area B - Attached to "Area B Heading" local member (after)

Table 2 Heading 1 - Attached to "Blank Line After Area B" local member (after) - this is for Month / YTD heading for table 2

Table 2 Heading 2 - Attached to "Table 2 Heading 1" local member (after) - this is Actual/Plan/Var heading

There are additional local members for the headings for table 3 (Area C) but this are linked directly to "Account C"

The problem i have is that if i run the report is that if there is no data for Area B the report looks like the below. This is because i linked the headings to Account A in the first table. I cant link it to table 2 (Area B) because the children of Account B change.

Any ideas on how to get around this?

    • In general the idea is simple - the enabled local member will disappear from the report if the member it's linked to is not shown. In your particular case if you put parent member on top of children and link local member before parent - it will work, but with parent after children - no chance...

    Hi Leo,

    Maybe in your account B part headers do a check for empty results, if its empty then just display nothing, else display something?
