OBIEE expert forum is up and running

OBIEE topics of interest
March 30, 2010

I’m delighted to announce that a new useful OBIEE forum / discussion board is open. Idea was up in the air for a long time – and it seems as multiple people planned this for awhile independently (rnm1978, Mark Rittman, Adrian Ward, and other guys and myself included). Part of it was frustration with moderation on official Oracle’s board, and part of it was a need for a resource where OBIEE and business intelligent professionals could share secrets of the trade. The difficult part is keeping balance between sharing knowledge as well as  providing a moderated environment.

The board is already active with several interesting topics going. If you’re interested in participating – please apply at Google OBIEE group

Thanks to Mark Rittman who organized the movement and to all those who agreed to become moderators.

    Hi All,

    I have my oc4j and and is up and running now.

    Now it is getting executed as root.

    But once the project gets over, the user will start up and down the oc4j and all other processes.

    So how can i make the user to execute startup and down the obiee services instead of root.

    I have the following requirment

    strengths count %count

    A 10 10%
    B 10 10%
    C 10 10%
    D 10 10%
    E 10 10%
    F 10 10%
    Top3 strengths sum 30 N/A

    I am required to give the top 3 strengths sum count and %count should show N/A.I used a topn(n=3) function on count and filtered out count<3 .But when iam do summation in the table view i get the total sum as 60 not 30.Its summing up all the 6 and showing.But i only need top 3 sum and here i can set the & count summation none so it dosent show.
    So switched to pivot table and in strengths wrote a sum (*) formula and got the top 3 sum .But iam also getting the sum of % which is 30%.I should not show that.So can anyone help me how to do this .Am i doing anything wrong in topn function because when i do in home using a sample example topn function gives me sum of only top 3 .But when i do in in my job it gives all sum.Is there anything that overrides the topn.
