Sum Function Is Not Calculating In The Subject Area For Alphanumeric Columns (Doc ID 2623016.1)

Last updated on JANUARY 01, 2020

Applies to:

Oracle Fusion Project Costing Cloud Service - Version 11.13.19.10.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

When adding subtotals on varchar column by dimension, the totals are not showing correctly, first row value is displaying on the subtotal.
As the varchar stores null value in the database, Sum on varchar values doesn’t work as expected when there are null values in the data.

 

Example:

"Expenditure Item and Cost Distribution Details"."PJC_EXP_ITEMS_DESC_FLEX_CAPITAL_CLOSEOUT_" which is an Alphanumeric column, is not totaling the Sum amount in the Column Formula >  Aggregation Rule (Totals Row).


Sum amount is showing a 0.00 total for the column when there are multiple Project Numbers to sum and one or more of these values is null.
