Passing current date to operational report
 Login/Join

I am using the new feature in 4.2 which allows you to pass a dimensional value to an operational report. It is working great for my "class" dimension on the previous vs current report.

I would also like to pass the "current date" from PMF to the operational report also. My "current date" is currently set to a fixed date. What would be the best technique to use to pass the "current date" to an operational report?

Thanks in advance

Hi Janice,

If by fixed date you mean the configured fixed date PMF is configured with, you can grab this value from the following variables.

&TLVL01_CUR = Year
&TLVL02_CUR = Time level 2 (quarter)
&TLVL03_CUR = TIme level 3 (month)

These values are stored in A_DEFAULTS.

Best regards,
Mike

Ok. And how do I get them to pass to an operational report? Does it work like the other dimensions where you pass them through the gadg_dim_parms?

I would just -INCLUDE A_DEFAULTS in the top of the operational report and then &TLVL01_CUR, &TLVL02_CUR and &TLVL03_CUR are available in your report.

If you wanted to pass the report the specific TIME filters used on a particular report you should use the gadg_dim_parms like the other dimensions but for TIME.

Brgds,
Mike
