OBIEE: Certain Time Periods Using Year In An Ago Function Do Not Work Correctly (Doc ID 1604709.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 06, 2015

Applies to:

Business Intelligence Server Enterprise Edition - Version 11.1.1.7.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Client uses a Date Dimension table that provides them with their date information.

This is the formula being used:

AGO("SR Measures"."SR Totals", "Dim SR Submit Date"."SR Submit Date".year, 1)

Client also has another formula tallying a different field going back one year that also produces null data for these certain time periods. They both use the same date hierarchy.
