Business always interested in Trend/Arrows in tables instead of numbers .In 4.0 IPAD we can get this by writing some code.
we can use images and hyperlinks to get the same .But it needs some maintenance.
This blog gives you simple trick to show Trend/Arrows in your webi report as per condition.
We know that we can use ascii values in webi with CHAR() function.
CHAR(9660 ) – DOWN ARROW
CHAR(9650 ) – UP ARROW
CHAR(9679 ) – CIRCLE
> Insert new column to show Arrows/Icons
>Write alerter with sub alter to show Arrows/Icons with different colors as per condition.
>write condition : Sales Qty less 10
Format alerter as per requirement. In my case DOWN Arrow
Set color for ARROW :RED and width of arrow (you can change it by increasing font size and style as BOLD)
Now you need to create sub alert for the Sales Qty greater than 10
Display : =CHAR(9650)
Format : GREEN color
Now apply Alert in your blank column. That’s it 🙂
Similarly you can create Alerters for ICONS also.
You can get ascii char values for different shapes from here
