Business Intelligence Publisher 220.127.116.11 Enterprise, Designing Layout Templates issues
When creating a pivot table custom formula in BI Publisher layout editor, users receive the following error:
'This formula is not valid for the selected component. Reason: Aggregation function missing.'
For example, when defining a subtraction on a pivot table column in an XPT template type a custom Formula:
Function: Basic Math: Subtraction
Subtrahend: Total Std Cost
In the Parameter dialog box for the Subtrahend the 'Field' method is selected with value 'Total Std Cost', and the above error message is received.
Is it possible to define custom formulas in a Pivot table?
