Dimension variable shows two rows in Webi report

Hello everyone!

I want to build a report with the following structure:

Account group 1 | KYF 1| KYF 2

For this effect, I've created a dimension variable called "Account group 1" with a formula like "GL account starts with "64"".

With this I'm getting two rows: one with the correct value and another with the aggregated value of the remaining accounts.

How can I make this return only one row with the restricted values I want?

Best Regards,

Luís Andrade.

    Hi Luis,

    There are two ways to do it.

    1. Simplest solution use a report filter by selecting the Account Group column and selecting the accounts.

    2. If the above one doesn't work if the report refreshes and new accounts come in, the other way is create one more variable named group2 or something, as dimension and use an if statement where if account group = account starting with GL Then group1 Else NULL. now apply the report filter where group2 not equal to "NULL". Now you will not have the last row as before.

    I think one of this should be helpful.

    Hi all,

    Turns out that our backend BW system was seriously outdated. There has been recently many corrections to the MDX interface. We have updated our service packs and this has resolved our issue.

    Thank you all for your help. Points assigned 😊

    Best regards,
