SmartView can be dumb


Happy International Teachers Day!!

Teachers at my daughter's middle school did not get any recognition today.  That's sad!  Be sure to thank a teacher today. They are usually underpaid and under appreciated!

I want to thank all the amazing teachers here: TimG, John Goodwin, User1211, Glenn Schw. , Cameron and many others in this forum.

I'm sorry to say - SmartView can be dumb!

In the old excel add-in, I can type in a member name (e.g. Market) and it will retrieve.  In "Smart"view, that does not always work!  It's infuriating!

Why is it that, if I type in a member name e.g. "East Coast" and click SmartView's "Ad Hoc" button to retrieve data, not-so-SmartView will not recognize "East Coast"?  I have to go into Essbase tab's member selection to select "East Coast" , push that into Excel cell, then not-so-SmartV would retrieve data. In fact, in member selection, I can tell that SV is lost - as it does not bring up "Market" dimension for "East Coast".

Howdy, Stranger!
