Getting started with Framework Manager The SQL Generated by IBM Cognos Software Guidelines for Working with SAP BW Data for Use in Transformer. Framework Manager is the IBM Cognos Business Intelligence modeling tool for about using Framework Manager, see the Framework Manager User Guide. than , see the documentation provided with your edition of Transformer. In earlier versions of IBM Cognos Business Intelligence, reports did not reuse about query reuse, see the Framework Manager User Guide.

In previous releases, if a query contained multiple hierarchies from the same dimension, you encountered errors or no data appeared in your report. Other types of drill-through targets are now supported. In the Diagram tab of the Project Viewer, you can cut, copy, paste, and delete a selected model object. For ibn information, see Insert a Hierarchy.
For example, to quickly rename a project, right-click the project name in the Project Viewer and click Rename.
Manageg example, you can map the member caption instead of the business key to the target. In Report Studio, you can now define a drill-through definition that allows a report to be shown on the Go To page only when a specific measure, dimension, hierarchy, alternate hierarchy, level, or query item exists in the source report.
Windows-based User Interfaces
Product updates are automatically captured through the smart client. In this release, this command appears under a Navigate Diagram command, along with related commands for working with diagrams. This allows you to restrict when the drill path is available to users. Microcharts are miniature line and column charts. There is now support for multiple hierarchies of a single dimension for dimensionally-modeled relational data sources. This allows you to sort using ibk members and measures.
A new Line Type property for the Line object in the chart allows you to cognoe vertical and horizontal lines to connect the data points, forming a step-like progression.
Objects can be reordered in ascending or descending order, based on their names. Synchronized Drilling Up and Drilling Down with Multiple Queries You can now link groups of data items from different queries in a report so that when you drill up or down on one query, data items in the other query also drill up or down. Administrators and modelers use a Microsoft Windows operating system utility named Map Manager to import maps and update labels for maps in Report Studio.
For more information about queries in the relational reporting style, see Working with Relational Queries. Enhanced Report Graphics A greater variety of colorful graphics and backgrounds are now available for dashboards and reports.
For example, you can view the lineage information of a model calculation to see how it was created. This means that the hierarchical relationship of a level is considered when member sorting is applied. Many commands on shortcut menus have been reorganized to make them easier to find and use. Options for configuring global test options are now available. For more information, see Add Background Effects.
Because prompt types on attributes were not processed in the previous release, some differences may occur.
Links to directly-related topics are included. You can now insert calculated members and measures in an intersection tuple. Crosstab Measures Can be Formatted Based on Other Crosstab Measures You can apply conditional styles to crosstab cells based on an adjacent value in the crosstab.
New Features in Version | Report Studio User Guide
For information about installing and configuring versions of Transformer that are earlier than 8. You can upgrade segmented projects via the main project.
In the previous release, the commands for these actions were listed on the first level of the right-click menu. This chart type is often used to represent a win or loss. All metadata, including all members, cube dimensions, hierarchies, and levels are loaded at run time.
Links to directly-related topics are included. For example, you can now include borders with rounded corners, transparent background fills and images, drop shadows, and background gradients.
To disable query reuse, change the Allow Usage of Local Cache governor. New governors have been added to allow further control of system resources and performance. Viewing lineage information ensures that you add the correct data items to a report. Links to directly-related topics are included.
In addition, the sorting of data by member is enhanced. If you have Composite data sources defined in IBM Cognos Connection, you must migrate the existing repository to the new default repository. Many commands are available from shortcut menus. The report user will see the prompt that matches the prompt type on the attribute.
You can now suppress rows, columns, or rows and columns based on zero, null, divide by zero, and overflow values in reports created with relational, dimensionally-modeled relational, and OLAP data sources.
You can now view lineage information of a data item to see what the item represents before you add it to a report. Listed below are changes to features since the last release.
