Conditional formatting with WAD


We have a requirement to create a web report where we would need to:

  • add conditional formatting based on result - compare two fields and set color based on result. e.g. if actual is better than target, the cell containing the actual must be made green

  • add image based on result - compare two further fields (YTD act and target) and add an up arrow if the result is + and down arrow if -.

The result of these fields can be set in BEx using a formula, however, how do you format and call an image within a cell of a table based on the value in the cell?

    Your first requirement could be achieved creating exception in teh query itself.

    Follow the steps to create the exception

    First in your query create a Formula using a Boolean Operation.

    (Actual > Target)

    Since this is boolean, if this condition is satisfied it will always populate 1.

    Now goto the Exception for the Key fig select your created formula

    Click on New

    Select the From Value and To Value as 1 and Alert level as Green


    Save the query and execute

    Your second requirement sounds a bit complex. If you are using WAD 3.5 then this could be achieved using Table Interface by creating a class in SE24 and dynamically populating the cells with the image.
