I don't use Oracle, so I can't be much help I'm afraid. A quick search on that error code yielded these, which might be helpful: https://support.oracle.com/knowledge/Enterprise%20Management/1983860_1.html https://dba.stackexchange.com/questions/238413/oracle-losing-connection-ora-03114-after-some-ti ...

Yep – that's been around for quite a while. I wrote myself a blog post back in the day to remind myself of the format: http://cognostips.weebly.com/blog/comments-in-fields

It's not a format I'm used to, but looking at it I'd say it's trying to filter the date in your report from one year ago to today. ------------------------------ Chris Turner ------------------------------

Hi, This will probably seem very obvious to some of you, but I just don't seem to be able to get my head round it. I've got some sales data at UK Postcode level. I want to display that information on a map at a region level. So, for example, I want to collate all the Manchester postcodes into a region ...

Hi Jerome, Yes, you're correct. The more elegant solution would be to have a trigger that runs on the server and fires on the 1st and the 15th. But without that I can't think of a better way to do it. The report view (A-view) will refer back to the report (A) so any changes that you make there will be ...

Create a report view of the original report. Schedule the report on the 1st and the report view on the 15th. ------------------------------ Chris Turner ------------------------------

I think you're trying to recreate a portal from the Cognos 8 days...to the best of my knowledge the navigator portals/widgets don't exist anymore. ------------------------------ Chris Turner ------------------------------

It sort of depends on what you're doing. Assuming you're talking about a report / query then you'd just create a case statement: case when [YourAgeColumn] between 0 and 5 then '0 to 5' when [YourAgeColumn] between 6 and 10 then '6 to 10' ... else 'OMG How Old?' end ------------------------------ ...

Hi Heather - did you get anywhere with this? I'm trying to do the same thing. I've used stored procedures in the past in Framework Manager, but I'm trying to step away from that. ------------------------------ Chris Turner ------------------------------

I have a report with a couple of queries joined together.In those two queries I can see a specific set of records, which in turn flow into the joined query. The report, which is built over the joined query, shows the records when I view it in HTML. My problem comes when I try to run the report in any ...

Hi - I want to add a trend line to a chart, but I don't seem to be able to. I've seen this article: https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/SSEP7J_11.1.0/com.ibm.swg.ba.cognos.ug_cr_rptstd.doc/t_trendline_new.html#trendline_new But when I try to follow the instructions I don't see anything for trendlines ...

Just for the sake of ease of reading, you could alter your statement to be: CASE when (Day of Month]) between 1 and 7 then 1 when (Day of Month]) between 8 and 14 then 2 when (Day of Month]) between 15 and 21 then 3 when (Day of Month]) between 22 and 28 then 4 when (Day of Month]) between ...

Could you reverse the logic? Have Report 1 reference Report1-Page1, Report1-Page2 etc. Then if you want a report with pages 2 and 4 only, build it and reference those pages. ------------------------------ Chris Turner ------------------------------

Hi - apologies if this is a trivial question, or if it's been answered before...I've looked and I can't find an answer. When I run a report and burst it to an external file, the filename has '-en-gb' appended to it. For example, I've specified that the output should be in CSV format and be called despatches. ...
