[SOLVED] InfoAssist and 'OVER'

Is the use of 'OVER' available from within out-of-the-box InfoAssist? Not by adding it in the Text Code. I don't see it here in FP or searching IA Help (http://MyStuff/ibi_help/index.jsp?scope=ia&topic=/com.ibi.help.ia/source/03_info30.htm).

Thanks, Doug

Only for Measures. In InfoAssist if you go to the format tab and click Stack Measures, you get the OVER syntax.

Dude... You're Awesome... That was too obvious and I overlooked it. Are you on the IB IA Dev Team?

Smiler...

How about if I want something like this where I need two measures side-by-side over two more measures side-by-side over measures side-by-side over ...:
Sales Order Report       Current Week  Previous Week
Fully Shipped:	                   31            123
Partially Shipped:                 12             34
Not Shipped:                    4,567          4,567
Extended Sell Open:          $127,091       $127,068
Extended Sell Shipped:       $464,592       $364,235

Or, am I just asking for too much from IA?

OVER syntax is very limited in InfoAssist so all signs point to no!

Yeah, very limited, but understandable.

Rant: I get frustrated when others say that IA can do 'everything you need' or 'everything that AS can do'.

But, one of my mottoes is "A man has got to know his limitations" (and the limitations of the tools he uses).
Thanks, Doug

Hi Doug,

In this instance I would consider the two weeks as the across element of your report.

It's a long story... Has anyone else come across similar claims by anyone?
