Usage of formulas in conditions in BEx Query Designer

Hi guys,

does anybody of you guys know, if it's possible to use the results of formulas in conditions? I tried it, but the result of the query was "No applicable data found", but there are data for the selection.

When I'm defining the condition with the key figure (no restricted or calculated key figure), then the query can be executed.

In my case, I like to define a condition based on a formula result. The value should only be displayed, when the result is greater than 30.

Any ideas or are there any bugy in the BEx Query Designer?

Thanks a lot + best regards,

Clemens

    Hi clements

    if the condition works on calculated keyfigure then it should work on formulae as well.

    There is no known bug.

    But conditions do behave differently in bex and web sometimes.

    Please let me know the front end and the details of the conditions and formulae.

    Thanks

    Hi Clemens,

    I have created a condition in my own system based on formula and it works perfectly fine. Please check following points in your condition change mode,

    1) Condition is marked as Active.

    2) In the block "Evaluate condition below for" you will have to select "All characteristics in drilldown Independently". If you have selected combination of characteristics then you will have to maintain proper sequence otherwise your condition will not work.

    3) In the next block when you set the condition, click on new, in the first block select your Formula from dropdown and set the proper operator in your case you will have to select "Greater than" in the next column set the value of key figure and just trasnfer it.

    Now you are ready to use the condition.

    Regards,

    Durgesh.
