I have three visualizations in an active report using Cognos 11.  Visualizations 1 and 2 can be clicked on to filter visualization number 3.  Vis. 3 is a stacked bar, and ideally the axes would adjust for the filtered results.

I have the 3rd visualization set to "Category Range" = Filtered Data.  I have done this on another report and it worked, so I am unsure why the axes won't adjust.
Reporting / CSV Export and Summary Row
« Last post by dpccgf on Today at 05:25:19 pm »
I have a report with a summary row total.  I need to export to CSV and have that row show as a trailer record. Is that possible without me doing another query that just has the trailer data?  It exports fine, but the totals show as columns in the CSV.  TIA
Reporting / Complex calculation for generating character string
« Last post by Harrylytics on Today at 04:08:11 pm »

I have a list containing incoming arrivals (persons) to a country. I would like to identify which people are traveling together. I have over 20 variables for this, but just to get an idea of how to do this, i am using the 7 most important variables.

Attached you find an anonimized sample to give an impression.

I would like to give unique string of 12 characters to identify people who travel together.
For this i would like to use:
timein -  the time they pass customs
datein - the date they pass customs
last name
place of stay
country of residence
length of stay

If you don't have the answer, can anyone tell me how to generate a random string of 12 characters (numbers + letters)?

Thanks in advance.

My search skills failed me, seems like this should have come up before but I can't track down a thread.
Management of users/groups and associated access is becoming a burden.  Anyone have experience with the BSP suite of CA admin tools or other similar products for managing users, groups, access, etc. within CA?  Is using these products common with CA or do most just manage things with the CA interface?  TIA for any insight.

just for checking, can you set up an ODBC connection to your SQL and try to use that?

Hello there.
This is perhaps an obvious question, but have you configured the 'Audit' functionality under 'Logging' on each of your servers (content managers and dispatchers) in your new environment?
Administration and Security / Re: CA 11 extended installation

I was just wondering the purpose of the expand feature in the installation.
Seems like it is for systems witch are installed using the Ready to Run! feature.
So if you deicide to add servers to that existing installation you'll use the expand feature. Here I thought it will then get what ever configuration you have from your initial setup. But looks like it is just any other installation where you need to manually configure the additional servers.

The process would be the same if you had a custom installation and decided to add servers. You will configure them manually.

This is how I understood it.

use the config from one of  your other servers as a base

does this mean you can just copy the config file from the initial install and there is no need for any other configuration?
