WEBI 4.2 Issues using merged dimensions and calculation contexts


I have 2 queries:

  • Query1:
    ID (Dimension)
    Company (Dimension)
  • Query2:
    ID (Dimension)
    Pay date (Dimension)
    Worked hours (Measure)

I have merged the two IDs

  1. I create an array with 3 columns:
    Worked Hours
    –> result is fine. I have the sum of Worked Hours for each ID
  2. I delete column Query1.ID because I want the total of Worked Hours by Company
    –> result is wrong. There is the same number everywhere in column Worked Hours (equal to the total of all Worked Hours)
    I think this is normal; it’s a context issue
  3. I write next formula in Worked Hours column:
    =Sum([Worked Hours] in ([ID];[Pay date])) In ([Company])
    –> result wrong. Nothing has changed.

I have tried several formulas but nothing is working. I’m going nuts. It seems so easy...
Can anyboby help me please ?

    Define a new variable from the [company] as the Detail of the ID and then use it in your table.


    hope that helps
