    Default date value in oracle dashboard prompt

    Saud

      Hi all,

       

      I would like to know how to add default date in dashboard prompt. I tried this SQL result

       

      "SELECT TIMESTAMPADD(SQL_TSI_WEEK,-2,Current_Date) saw_0 FROM "DIM_PERIOD""

       

      but some times it works and mostly it doesn't work. When I add remove the table and add it again it works but after some time it shows (All Column Value).

       

      Any help would be appreciated.

       

      Thank you.

          I must say...it is very weird that the way you are doing it is not working. I tried it on my end and could not get it to work either.

          To get it to work, I wrote something like this:

           

          SELECT "Date"."Date" FROM "Sales-SubjectArea"  where "Date"."Date"=current_date

           

          The key here was that I added a 'where' clause and it seemed to work.

          So maybe yours could be something like:

          Select "DIM_PERIOD"."DATE" from "<subject area>" where "DIM_PERIOD"."DATE" = TIMESTAMPADD(SQL_TSI_WEEK,-2,Current_Date)

           

          (I realize that the query I give may not really make sense in your subject area -- like you may not actually have 'Date' in your DIM_PERIOD dimension. But I'm just trying to show how maybe using the WHERE clause might help)

           

          Hopefully this helps!
