Reporting / Repeating list header for every record
« Last post by Rafiq_123 on Today at 12:52:38 am »

I'm using Cognos 11.06 . My requirement is as follows. Need the column headers to be repeated after every record of data. Repeater doesn't work as my list has both summarized values and sectioning done.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks MFGF!

That was exactly what I needed.  If I run to Excel from the Report list the "1" no longer appears on my A1 cell.
It only appears when running from the edit mode's run report button.
Cognos Administration / Route users basing on Cognos Connections
« Last post by alis on 20 Sep 2019 10:35:21 am »
Good morning everybody! :)
I have a question about Cognos Connections and I need an answer real quick... :( can you please help me?
On a DB, I have two views of the same table MYTABLE.
I would like to associate one view to one Cognos Connection, the other one to another Cognos Connection.
Then, basing on which Cognos Connection an user (or group of users) is enabled to, show him the first one or the second one.
How can I do?

More specifically,  the case is that:
- I already have a lot of packages and table MYTABLE is present in each of them;
- Most of the other tables I already have in my packages are to be shown to everybody without restrictions;
- I need to hide the values of column A of MYTABLE to a group of user and the values of column B of MYTABLE to another group.

I would like to avoid to profile user permissions in every package I have: it would take a lot of time.
I would just like to route users basing on the Cognos Connection they are enabled to.

Can anybody help me?

Thank you in advance!! :)
In the Cognos report, that would be pages.  Try using a page set.
is it possible to split the Report into multiple Excel tabs by Client# or Group#?
I have to run the run the report for 121 Clients, and they one each CLient in different excel sheet/tab.

Thank you helping!
In our webapplication we have embedded the Cognos portal in iframe and accessed through Authentication REST API methods .

So is there any way to know whether user is already login into cognos portal or not in my webapplication before we call Authentication REST API methods .

I have a report in html which consists of three pages and is displayed with TAB's.
Is there a way to click on an object from TAB number 2 which will take me to TAB number 1?
Table of contents and bookmarks I have already tested and it does not seem to work

Hope someone can help me with a hint

Dashboards / Re: Line Chart with Multiple values

I got it to work via a legacy chart.  I just added my amount data items to the series and it created what I needed.  Still not sure how the newer charts are supposed to be used.
Dashboards / Line Chart with Multiple values

This is probably simple but I can't figure it out.

I've got a crosstab built that shows 3 different amounts spanning the 12 month calendar year.  I'm trying to display this data in a line chart with 3 lines spanning the 12 months listed on the x axis but it's only allows me to add 1 'value' per chart.  What am I missing?

Thanks in advance!
