Formula and variables on display attributes

Hi,

1. Can a Formula be used on display attributes? If so, how?

2. Also, is it possible to create variable (user entry) on display attributes? If so, how?

Thanks,

P R.

    Hi,

    If I change it to Navigational attribute, can I use it in the calculation in the formula?

    Thanks.

    Hi PR

    To be able to manipulate an attribute you need to set it as a Nav. Attribute, to do this you need to go to the infoobject of the attribute and go to the attributes tab, click the Set Status button (the pencil with a tick) in the Navigation Attribute On/Off columns and turn it on. Activate the infoobject. The Nav attribute will appear in the ODS and Cube under the Nav. Attribute Folder, it will be called something like Infoobject_Attribute, you will need to tick this to be able to use it for reporting, this must be done in the ODS,Cube and Multi or up to whatever level you are reporting on. Once done, restart the query designer and the Nav. Attribute will appear in the same dimension of the infoobject and will now be able to be reported on as if it were a normal characteristic, can create variable etc.

    Hope this helps
