which is the right way to add a new column to an existing combined analysis from two subject areas?
if I add the new column first in my two combined queries, then I saw a new column in the results column panel, but this new column is empty and I can't edit its propreties (the button edit column doesn't work). I can't even save the modified analysis due to a "bad xml" errror.
if I try to first add a new column from the results panel and then in my combined queries, obiee says that new columns are not of the same type.
I suppose this is because the new column in results panel has no aggregation formula, unlike new columns in queries.
But I don't know how to change the properties of the new field in the results panel, with no subject area available.
I have to restart from a single subject area? possible?
In this case, there is a way to save/copy filters ecc. from the old analysis?
If anyone can help.
When you are using union clause in analysis or combining with other subject area you suppose to have same number of columns and their datatypes with other analysis.
for datatype issues you can use cast in column expression in each analysis. If you want to add a column only from 1 analysis just add and in other analysis use dummy column with exp 0 or ''(for char) based on the datatype.
These you have to deal with each analysis.
If helps pls mark
