How do I generate calculations, example I want to produce profit %. the instructons say I have to select the report and select the object tab then I can add a calculation. When I select the report the object button is not accessable.

Hi John,

Generally you can create calculations on objects in analyses - not reports. Maybe you actually mean ’analyses’ when you say ’reports’…?

Next, you will need to have access rights higher than a standard ‘Viewer’ user type, e.g. ‘Advanced’ or ‘Power’ user.

You may test it this way: Create a new analysis (click the ‘New’ button) – add a cross tab object from the tool bar – add a measure and a dimension and fetch data. Look at the Smartpad at the left hand side. Do you see a ‘Calculations’ tab? If not, you do not have sufficient rights to do calculations.

Best regards,
Ole Dyring
