[CLOSED] Missing Hide on InfoAssist
HI,

I have few metrics that has the Missing option selected when the Value is NUll or Blank. then, on WF infoAssist, it is showing a DOT '.', for the missing values. i thought when selecting HIDE option for Missing Values, and running the report it will HIDe those DOTs, but still showing.
here is what I have:

Market Sales Cost
USA 100 50
UK . 50
China . .

So, i would like to HIDE all DOTs, and I have selected the Missing Value to HIDE. but still are there... Could u please let me know what am doing wrong ?

thanks !!

SET NODATA=' '
or anything else your heart desires:

SET NODATA=' Frowner'

Thanks George for your reply.

Where should I add that SET NODATA=' '
Inside Developer Studio, in the metric - define field directly or in another place ?

thanks!!

I don't think there is an option in InfoAssist to specify such a setting, at least not in 7.7.05 which is the version I currently have.

The only way I could think of to implement this functionality would be to create a Reporting Object where you'd SET the options you need and create InfoAssist reports out of it.



Prod/Dev: WF Server 8008/Win 2008 - WF Client 8008/Win 2008 - Dev. Studio: 8008/Windows 7 - DBMS: Oracle 11g Rel 2
Test: Dev. Studio 8008 /Windows 7 (Local) Output:HTML, EXL2K.

Oops .... I missed the fact that you are using InfoAssist.... I'm one of the dinosaurs who codes everything manually and then goes to the graphical tools to pretty thing up. I'm no expert in InfoAssist. I would be surprised, though, if there isn't a SET tool, since there are dozens of SETtings available. Mostly these are invoked ahead of the report procedure in the form I mentioned, but at least some of them can be in the TABLE request itself, as

ON TABLE SET XYZ=abc

You mention Dev Studio in your reply, so if you have that as well as InfoAssist just place the SET right before the TABLE request. Note that there is no dash at the front of these SET commands and no semi-colon at the end. They are Focus commands, not Dialogue Manager commands.
