Hi All,

I thought to write something which is not covered yet in Google. Lately, while working on a report where one formula is used multiple times an interview question pops up in my mind that what is the difference between formula and variable.

Benefit of variable:

Easy to understand & recognize.

Change is at one place and reflects everywhere in the report.

Maintenance efforts are less in case of future change.

Variable is manadatory to create detail variable.

    Hello Amit,

    Just wanted to know like Crystal I don’t think we have anything like local global or shared variable that we can refer.

    So how can we call it as a Variable in Webi because like what Niel said if we say =30 is a formula although its an constant.

    Please clarify me on this regards.
