    hi anuradha,
    you can use substitution variable in the grid and then display that in text via GetHeading function.

    Hope this helps.

    hi,

    if substitution varible is defined correctly on the cube then it should definately be displayed on the some dimension member selection.

    Please check that.
    Once it is visible, just use it as a member in any hidden row/column. Then use GetHeading function to display it in a text box.

    Hi,

    I have cross checked all dim's in FR...but could not find 'em in any dim's.......other sub variables which r related to dim's r visible under respective dim's(Ex:Year=$curyr)......

    i could see it defined in the outline for this cube.

    i fell that the data load sub var is not visible under any dim as itz not related to any of them.....

    Is there a way to display it in FR.

    Thnx

    hi,
    yes to display a substitution variable, it has to be associated with one of the dimensions.
    and then only you will be able to display it.

    May be one other option might be to use LINKED OBJECT in FR. so that just updating the information in one text box of one report will do it in all reports.


    You can also use substitution variable in that liked object.
