Hi All,

I am having an issue with the display formats of the Measures in Design Studio 1.6 SP3.

Data Source: Multi Source Universe(Derived from SQL server and Excel files)

Issue: Having multiple Measure Objects, like Sales, Target, and % of Sales. All measures are having a display format setup in Universe.

But when adding the universe as a data source, an in Query Specification window i am getting correct formats.

But, when coming to the Initial View, losing all formatting changes made in the universe,

Is there any way to format the Measures in Design studio by using Java Script or CSS. (Need to add $ and %) for values???

Environment: Business Objects 4.1 SP5

Data Source: Universe (Multi Sources, SQL Server & Excel)

Design Studio 1.6 SP3

Note: I searched many SCN posts but i didn't find any relevent one.

Looks like some formatting features were fixed in Design Studio 1.6 SP4 - please see SAP Note

Updated my design studio to 1.6 SP 4, but still having the same issue.


I would submit a SAP Support incident referencing this link and let them know you installed SP4.

Hi Vinay,

I need to display it in the Graph. (Dual axis graph, Tarhet and Sales amounts in Stacked Column, and % of Sales in line)

Any way to apply your CSS code for graphs?
