How to handle Aggregate Functions like (Count/Max/Min) in Webi Summary Report’s.
Hello every one,
I would like to share how can we handle aggregate functions like Count /Max/Min for summary reports in Webi. Whenever we are working on Webi summary reports we will regularly face this issue like count /max/min will always show’s unexpected value but defined formula is correct.
Scenario: I have created one sample report which contains objects like EMP id, EMP Name, Emp age, Emp Sal and Emp type.
Note: Emp id, Emp sal are measure objects and rest of all are dimension objects.
Now we got a request that report need to display :
- 1. Number of employees under Emp type A & B
- 2. Max Sal of Emp type A & B
- 3. Min Sal of Emp type A & B
In general we will create 3 variables & we will apply (Count/Max/Min) function’s as below :
- Number of employees =Count([Emp id])
- Max Sal of Emp type =Max([Emp Sal])
- Min Sal of Emp type =Min([Emp Sal])
If we do like this we will get incorrect values as below:
Possible solution is we have to convert Emp id & Emp Sal as Dimension objects & then we need to apply (Count/Max/Min) functions on newly created dimensions .
Hope, this document might be helpful for some of them.
