Symptoms

Business Intelligence Publisher 11g, Designing Layout Template issues

 

 

When generating Excel output via BI Publisher 11g or 12c, selecting a range of numbers does not display the Sum for that column.


Instead only the Count value is displayed.

For example set the column "Total Account MV" output value to 'Number'.

Next generate the output file, and check for number values in column "Total Account MV".

if multiple rows are selected, it shows a COUNT value at the bottom , but does not show the SUM for the column.
