Hi,

Honestly, you'd be much better learning Cognos Analytics (Cognos 11) than Cognos 10.2.2. The UI is completely different, and 10.2.2 will drop out of support in April 2018, so it has a limited lifespan.

There is a free trial of Cognos Analytics in the cloud - I'd be tempted to use this

Cheers!

Dashboards / Re: How to make map's focus
« Last post by MFGF on Today at 04:27:10 am »
Hi,

The map will automatically focus in on a region if it knows it has data only from that region. My guess is that you have some data the map classes as being ambiguous?

Do you see a little yellow warning triangle in the top right corner of the map? If so, click on this and you will see the data the map can't resolve. It might just be that you need to add a country to remove the ambiguity?



Cheers!

Hello,
I want to customize treemap by categories in Report Studio 10.2.2. I have set:
  • Dimension = total invoice amount
  • Category = description of business unit (I have only one dimension)
Now when i run my report i see only:
  • top left of a square: description of business unit (and this is ok)
  • center of a square: the string "Total invoice amount" (this is not what i want)
  • down left of a square: the string "Total invoice amount" (this is ok)
I want to show in the center of each square not the string "Total invoice amount" but the real value of the dimension total invoice amount for that business unit, for example 123456$.
How can i show this? I have tried to modify specification .json of treemap with Visualization Customizer, but i didn't have success. Can you help me? It is possible to make this change?

Report Studio / Re: Trying to get the length of a date field
« Last post by BigChris on Today at 02:16:53 am »
Are those the only two formats? And are they stored as strings or numbers? If it's stored as a number then I think you just need to add 2000000000, but the better solution would be to stored them as actual dates in your datawarehouse - you should be able to convert them in your ETL process on the way in.

Have people forgotten the millennium bug already...?

Dashboards / How to make map's focus
« Last post by Eag. E on Today at 01:08:57 am »
Hi

I use (new) Map visualization in 11.0.7.
My data are all based on one city (such as New York), so I want to focus on New York only when open the Dashboard.

It seems like no way to configure this, once I open the Dashboard, a world map shows.

Framework Manager / Re: Calculated Time Periods using DMR Time Dimension

it certainly looks right.

What happens if you do parent([presentation].[Current_Day_BOD]) instead of [presentation].[Current_Week_BOD]? If you put in the mun directly into the data item?

Report Studio / Re: How to have 'top' without rank

sorting on descending order to the measure column and do running-count(measure col or any col that you want) then drag this into filter running-count<=10 should get 10.

Report Studio / Re: UNIQUE function and MUNs

My guess is to try Auto grouping yes property of the query
