As of December 1, 2020, Focal Point is retired and repurposed as a reference repository. We value the wealth of knowledge that's been shared here over the years. You'll continue to have access to this treasure trove of knowledge, for search purposes only.

New TIBCO Community Coming Soon
In early summer, TIBCO plans to launch a new community—with a new user experience, enhanced search, and expanded capabilities for member engagement with answers and discussions! In advance of that, the current myibi community will be retired on April 30. We will continue to provide updates here on both the retirement of myibi and the new community launch.

What You Need to Know about Our New Community
We value the wealth of knowledge and engagement shared by community members and hope the new community will continue cultivating networking, knowledge sharing, and discussion.

During the transition period, from April 20th until the new community is launched this summer, myibi users should access the TIBCO WebFOCUS page to engage.

For measures reports (say Measures - Previous vs. Current), is there way to display measures even when there is do data in the time range?

Currently the measure name does not appear if there is no data at all in a time range. If there is data in at least one time period, then the measure name is displayed and the "no data" (aka Ghostbusters’s) symbol appears where there is no data.

This is in contrast to objectives reports, in which the objective name will be displayed even if there is no data in the underlying measures.

This is not a showstopper for us, as we have a one for one relationship for measures and objectives so we can show an objective report. However Objective reports require an extra drill step, which is inconvenient.

Ideally it would be nice to have a setting to turn on or off display of measures that had no data in measure reports. That being said, I would much rather see product development effort reworking the loaders so that they are more user friendly over this.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Seth,

We have an operational report for data that is not quite ready to be made into a proper measure. The client wanted to be able to call the report from within PMF and have it respect the drill-down context, even though there was no measure to drive this.

We solved this by loading zeros into PMF for every time period and dimension value. Now the user can drill-down on the zeros until they are at the desired time and dimension level, at which point they can call the external report through the Options button (custom coded link).

This would solve you issue too, in that the measure would always show.

Hope this helps a bit.

Cheers,

Joey

Thanks Joey,

By happenstance I figured out that Analysis Designer created gadgets that do not have the date range set will display all dates. So as long as there is at least one value in a metric, the metric will be displayed on the report.

See sample code below:

-* File gadget_file_name.fex

-SET &PERSPECTIVE_ID=0;
-SET &OBJECTIVE_ID=0;
-SET &MEASURE_SERIES='0';
-SET &INWH33=0;
-SET &RPT_FLDIN01='IND_ACTUAL_TARGET_DEFAULT';
-SET &RPT_FLDIN02='VAL_ACTUAL';
-SET &RPT_FLDIN03='VAL_TARGET';
-SET &SORTACROSS='TIME_LEVEL03_VALUE';
-SET &REPORT_TITLE='Report_Title';
-SET &WFFMT='HTML';
-SET &THIS_FOCEXEC='PMF_RPT_TMPLT_MEAS_ACRDIM';
-INCLUDE PMF_RPT_TMPLT_MEAS_ACRDIM
