Different column detail webi report

Dear experts,

Is it possible to have a webi report with the following columns' layout:

Country | Average 2009 | Jan 2010 | Feb 2010 | .... | Dec 2010 | Average 2010

I've created a variable directly in the webi report but I'm not able to have detail by month in 2010 and a column with the 2010 total.

Any ideas?

thank you!


Inês Santos

    Can you try this. Create three objects and use cross tab.


    Avg(column) over (partition by year=2009)


    Avg(column) over (partition by year=2010)



    WHEN Date >='01-01-2010' and Date<='31-01-2010' THEN 'Jan2010'

    • Hi InĂªs,

      I only just saw this, so may I suggest the approach I would use?

      Use two queries, one for this year (on month level).

      Copy that and make it select last year (no month object).

      Use a crosstab, country going down, year/month going across.

      In the body put the measure from this years query, not sure if that should be sum or average, but you'll manage

      Now you can use the table footer on the right to place the average of that object (= average of this year).

      So the only column left to do is the average of 2009.

      Create a new column on the right of the left header of the table, so basically next to country.

      In this column place the average of the last years query.

      Only thing left to do is a little formatting so it looks like a "normal" table.

      Hope this helps,


      P.S. it's also possible in one query, but then you will have to split out the years based on the userresponse.

      and create report variables for the measures of this year and last year.
