FR (Financial Reproting) Report Text Function Optional TRUE/FALSE Parameter Causes The Report To Fail With Error: Error: '*Invalid arguments*'

(Doc ID 2261586.1)

Last updated on JULY 09, 2017

Applies to:

Hyperion BI+ - Version 11.1.2.4.000 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

When trying to retrieve cell text, the optional TRUE/FALSE related to attachments causes the report to fail with error: *Error: Invalid arguments* . The following screenshot shows the FR report message as well:

An example of the cell text function used in the above failed report, <>

While without adding the function optional TRUE/FALSE parameter, the report works fine.

Changes

The issue looks to have started to appear after migrating to 11.1.2.4.xx, and report error started to appear.

This appears to be working fine under FR 11.1.2.3.7xx.

Once the ",FALSE" parameter is removed from the function, the report runs successful and function returns the correct cell text.
