DMR Functions in Framework Manager. «on: 18 Nov am». Hello Folks, I am working on Cognos BI version, I have created a DMR model. Hi khayman, Ya, I am new to dimensional functions. I have to add simple ancestor() and Bottoncount() functions. I create a data item is. Could you please suggest how to achieve this scenario using DMR model. * Regards, DMR Function to get Previous Year Data. 6. Answers. 0 .

The solution will be demonstrated by using Cognos version Then bring all three highlighted members into report query or report. RelativeTime values ‘CM’, When there is any change for relative time, you need to only add records.

The idea is to create a new relative time table. RelativeTime values ‘R13M’, This approach is not flexible, as you need to add column into database, but it is very easy to use for report authors. Option 3 handles it at report level: When published, the package should be displayed as follows. Filter the set of Date to find the members that have data for a measure you know only goes up to the current period, in this case Revenue.

Create each time hierarchy for each individual relative time. Now create each tunctions time as a separated dimension. Option 3 handles DMR relative time at Report level.

When changing relative time, you only need to add record s.

All three relative time is mapped as below. Even DMR and cube both belongs multi dimensional reporting, DMR based report does present some challenges for relative time. For Rolling 13 Months. To explore the similar relative time functionalities in functiions, this document is intended to provide three solutions to handle relative time, listed below: Check list of all posts.

Posted by Charles Yin at Hi with alternative 2, do I need to update the dates in functins parameter map every month?

RelativeTime Parameter varchar 10Value int. When published, package looks as fellows.

In this case, create additional three columns as. Add additional relative time flag columns in Time dimension, and update it on daily basis. Returning a member is important if you want to use this data item in another dimensional function.

The main disadvantage of option 1 is to change database when adding a new relative time.

Option 2 handles it at framework manager level: The tail function returns a member set. Because the desired result is a single member, the item function is used passing 0 as its index value argument to return only the current period member. This is a way to develop relative time based report without changing database and framework manager. Based on this query, you can create a dynamic parameter map. Please note that you can define more complicated table, such as begin date, and end date.


RelativeTime values ‘YTD’, The options above provide report user a clear framework manager model, however you need to change database or framework manager. The key point is to define fhnctions filter for each relative dimension. Option 1 handles it at database level: Newer Post Older Post Home.

Petter Huseby January 23, at Create a new functioms to host relative time as below. Another key pint is to define top level member, somehow you need to add a reference of date dimension, so that the query engine know to apply the filter of the used dimension. Option 1 handles DMR relative time at database level.

Without applying any changes in database and framework manager, you can dynamically figure out current date, and then apply MDX time functions to determine all periods as requested on the fly. Instead of i column for time dimension, a relative time table is created.
