QMF Analytics for TSO

When QMF 12 was released it came with a new component called QMF Analytics for TSO. This component gives QMF enhanced graphing and statistical  analysis features.

Here is QMF for TSO. The Q.CLIMATE_USA table is about to be displayed

 Now fill in the grouping column and a Title

You may save all these settings with F5  or press F2 to run it.




Fill out the Panel and press F5 to save or F2 to Run

3) Mixed

When it is run you get the percentages of the total for each wedge





Fill out the panel, again clicking on the spaces will show a list of columns to choose from.

6) Finally, the TOWER

Again, click on the fields for a list or fill in the blanks yourself.

When run it gives a chart like this
