Wondering if someone knows a way to fix this:
I built a report that has a characteristic that contains the numerical difference between two dates. then I setup columns that filter a range 0-5, 6-10, 11-15, 16-20. Up to now everything works fine.
Now, a last requirement is implemented which breaks the whole thing:
They must be able to specify a grace period to this range of dates. So what I did is I setup a variable on this characteristic and setup my ranges as shown below:
(the + are set as offsets to teh variable)
0-5 grace to grace+5
6-10 grace6 to grace10
and so forth.
If I run this report with the variable containing 0 (actually #), it works fine. But the moment I try to change this vaue I get:
Message: Moved value is not within the allowed value range Diagnosis You wish to move the value of a variable. The result is consequently no longer in the permitted value range. System response Procedure Procedure for System Administration Notification Number BRAIN 617
Anyone has a clue how to get around this? The only thing I found so far would be to apply the grace period to a report filter like >grace. This way though my column ranges wouldn't be dynamic and if someone chose a grace of 5, the 0-5 column would be empty and so on... Not the perfect solution... Anyone has something better? (I always give proper points).
