Lower ratios allow for efficient partitioning and faster cube creation times in Cognos Transformer, as well as easier data exploration in your reporting component.


Erna – Pinner – Stra sse 86 Frankfurt Phone: Disadvantages of a Time-based Partitioned Cube Category handling, sorting enhancements, and support for external rollup make time-based partitioning a useful optimization technique for production environments.

You have tried to change the current date from the command line using the -t option. My cube generations scripts and RII Queue were highly recognized and appreciated by my current customer. You can only create subdimensions below categories that are in a source level. For example, this source contains a column that provides category values for the unique level Product No. If the special category has only one child, you can either supply a value for the special category or accept the value taken from the child.

Page – Creating a Publish Specification to Publ To resolve the problem, ensure that the items in the Data Sources list use the same sort order that Cognos Transformer uses when processing the data.


This option specifies the user-defined preference file or files to use.

A range prompt is a type of multi-valued prompt. Omit Categories Using Cloak For example, suppose that your company maintains branches throughout the world.

Page This improves performance during the data read phase. In the Cognos Transformer Categories diagram, relative time periods appear in the category viewer as special categories, highlighted in pale green, below the other drill-down paths in the time dimension.

The list of available functions varies with the Data class. PowerCube is located to include a version reference number v creates a ppowerplay. Page When specifying date level functions in a time dimension, lunar time periods and calendar time periods cannot be combined within a single drill-down path.

When reports that directly reference this category or member are run, the report consumer will receive an error. You can set the default location to which Cognos Tranxformer saves models by changing the PowerCubes directory setting on the Directories tab of the Preferences property sheet.

The Cloak action eliminates categories and their descendants, but rolls up their values for representation in the parent category. Text Functions Reverses the characters in a string.

Page The following report shows sales by the sales representative Marthe for and Page Returns the remainder modulus of an integer divided by a second integer. Page – Example – Union of Excluded and Cloaked On Windows, cogtr builds cubes in the model by default.

The settings that are available depend on the item you selected level, category, drill category, or special category.

Default Cognos Transformer reads all columns in the source that relate to levels in the model to see if they are associated with measures. Page When creating or modifying a category manually, in a manual level, you have changed the category code so that it conflicts with an existing category code. Page 44 An asterisk beside a prompt name identifies a mandatory prompt. Set A Regular Rollup Function For Measures For example, level of inventory is recorded for a specific product, at the same warehouse, in the same year, on different dates.


Cognos Transformer Developer Guide. Either you have referred to a data source by an opwerplay name or object identifier that Cognos Transformer is unable to locate, or you have not referenced the data source. Regular Rollup Measure values are summarized from lower to higher category levels. Building An If-then-else Calculated Expression This format allows them to operate with zero, one, two, or more arguments: Page Powerplqy text strings are enclosed in either double or single quotation marks.

The default path is the value of ModelSaveDirectory.

You have tried to create a subdimension based on a category in a manual level. You can overwrite it with other data values. The Interface Of Cognos Transformer This section provides a description of the Cognos Transformer user interface, as powerplah as additional information about the interface, modeling concepts, and database terminology to help you create PowerCubes for use in IBM Cognos.

To ensure that missing values are shown appropriately, review the missing value settings for all measures before building new cubes. Page You can only create subdimensions below categories that are in a source level.
