DMR Functions in Framework Manager. «on: 18 Nov am». Hello Folks, I am working on Cognos BI version, I have created a DMR model. Hi khayman, Ya, I am new to dimensional functions. I have to add simple ancestor() and Bottoncount() functions. I create a data item is. Could you please suggest how to achieve this scenario using DMR model. * Regards, DMR Function to get Previous Year Data. 6. Answers. 0 .

The idea is to create a new relative time table.

This approach is functionx flexible, as you need to add column into database, but it is very easy to use for report authors. The key point is to define a filter for each relative dimension.

Get the last date that has data. When published, package looks as fellows. Then make time filter dynamic based on relative time table.

In this case, create additional three columns as. In this case only one member is returned funnctions the integer argument is 1. Option 2 handles it at framework manager level: Then bring all three highlighted members into report query or report. Check list of all posts. Create a new table to host relative time as below.

cogjos Because the desired result is a single member, the item function is used passing 0 as its index value argument to return only the current period member. Filter the set of Date to find the members that have data for a measure you know only goes up to the current period, in this case Revenue. Returning a member is important if you want to use this data item in another dimensional function.

Hi with alternative 2, do I need to update the dates in the parameter map every month? To explore the similar relative time functionalities in cube, this document is intended to provide three solutions to handle relative time, listed below: Petter Huseby January 23, at RelativeTime values ‘CM’, The options above provide report user a clear framework manager model, however you need to change database or framework manager.

Option 1 handles DMR relative time at database level. Based on this query, you can create a dynamic parameter map.

This is a way to develop relative time based report without changing database and framework manager. The solution will be demonstrated by using Cognos version RelativeTime Parameter varchar 10Value int.


Add additional relative time flag columns in Time dimension, and update it on daily basis.

Get the set of members from the Time dimension at the Date level. The tail function returns a member set. Please see query below. Cognso 3 handles DMR relative time at Report level.

Another key pint is to define top level member, somehow you need to add a reference of date dimension, so that the query engine know to apply the filter of the used dimension. Option 2 handles DMR relative time at framework manager level. Please note that you can define more complicated table, such as begin date, and end date. Create a query object to host Relative Time. RelativeTime values funxtions, It is most flexible solution, however, it request report authors to have good understanding of MDX functions.

To resolve this issue, this option is to provide a solution without change time dimension. Option 3 handles it at report level: There are three relative time frames:
