[SOLVED] Conditional Styling ACROSS values
Hi all-
need a little more help understanding styling columns. This time, values in an across report. If I have a report that sums values across like this:
ACROSS FIELD
BY FIELD
A 0 0
B 0 2
C 1 0

I want only (but all) the cells where the sum is greater than 0 to be conditionally formatted. I can get the ones in the first column of across to format by this:
TYPE=DATA, COLUMN=N2, BACKCOLOR=YELLOW, WHEN=N2 GT 0,

but not the 2nd set of across values. Also, this report may have more than two across values depending on the data. Basically, I do not want entire rows or entire columns formatted. Just cells where values are greater than zero.

Thanks
Bob

I figured this out from another post:

I used
TYPE=DATA, ACROSSCOLUMN=N1, BACKCOLOR=YELLOW, WHEN=N2 GT 0,
$

Sorry to bother.

Conditional formatting is really quite straight forward from within the Dev Studio GUI. Select a field on the report... select conditional formatting... follow it on through... BobV's reply is good... But, getting familiar with the DS GUI is a step forward beyond just getting it done.

As Francis intinmates, a Graphical "USER" Interface to a professional is a step forward?

It's a step forward to decimate the consulting world, agreed, but, a 3 year-old can point-and-click. Business and data analyses is not done via a GUI tool; that, along with folks doing other folks work for them, has changed the world...

I agree.. I didn't, nor would I, say that it was a "step forward". I did say it was "straight forward " (intuitive?)...

But, then again, I've had clients who require it: "It has to be able to open in the (Dev Studio) GUI"... Then again, I had a client who required all the SQL code as part of the documentation... I was there as a Senior WebFOCUS Consultant. Why would I want to create SQL? WebFOCUS can do that... So, I let it... I gave them the SQL... That's where the SQLTRACE comes in handy... Anyway... I'm sure we could all go on, and on... but, I'll stop... It's so hard to stop... Stop already! OK!
