Yet another unintuitive Cognos 'feature' that has wasted hours of my time.

I have a 2 column, 3 row table on my prompt page. Each cell has a 1 column, 2 row table that includes a Value Prompt and text item above for user instruction.

The column width default to take up the whole screen. I want to minimize this so it looks more professional.

Here's what I'm doing that does not work:
1.) Select each cell in the 2x3 table columns
2.) Size & Overflow > width = 300px

Result: NO CHANGE.

WHY? HOW DO THESE SIMPLE TASKS BECOME FRUSTRATINGLY TIME CONSUMING ENDEAVORS IN COGNOS

What is the size and overflow setting for the 2x3 table? Tables default to 100% width.

TM1 / Cafe - subset editor - turn off Properties ?
« Last post by donap on Today at 09:27:40 am »
When a user opens  cafe report, and tries to EDIT SET in a crosstab -- The right hand side that shows the elements that are currently selected for the report.  This window also displays all properties of the elements.... is there a way to disable the Properties displaying here  ?
Thanks

TM1 / Re: Passing MUN from TM1 to DB table
« Last post by MFGF on Today at 05:44:11 am »
Hi, thanks for any help!

I am trying to set up Event Studio to run a report with parameters passed from TM1.  I have added a button in TM1 that writes a record to a table with the options users select.  I want to pass the MUN and not the name into the table and then use it to populate the params in my Report Studio report.  I can see in my package that I have the MUN added when I look in RS so it is there somewhere, just how do I pass it from TM1 to the DB table?

Thanks

Hi,

Firstly, I LOVE your forum name! A blast from the past. :)

As you know, my old friend, I'm not an expert in the dark arts of TM1, but I know a Kipper who is - might be worth reaching out to him directly?

Hope you're keeping well and enjoying all the globe-trotting!

Cheers!

MF.

What are you using as your content store? Are you seeing any relevant entries in cogserver.log that identify what is going on?

Also, one other thing I observed is, the newly created content store database has got just 110 tables and there are no NC_* tables.
I tried cleaning up the database / with a new empty database and start cognos content mangaer. Both times I ended up with only 110 tables in the content store?

Any idea why NC_* tables are not getting created?

Thanks,

Hi MF,

I have un-installed Cognos 10.2.1 and installing Cognos Analytics on that machine.
I thought that could be a case, but I don't see the folders: encryptkeypair and signkeypair at all.

Thanks,
Anupama
