OBIEE Pivot table Measure label

One of those things you have to be reminded of how it works.

If you have this request:

You will get a default table view like this:

Let's put it in a pivot table:

Switch the measure label box with the region:

It becomes even more intressting wen we bring the measure label box to row pane:

And how do you sort a pivot table? for example if you add a total column and you want to sort your rows based on that total? I have been looking how to do this and haven't been able to.

Try playing aroun with a (hidden) TOPN column over your measure:
TOPN((sum("Sales Measures".Dollars by Products.Brand)),1000)

I created a pivot table and I want to set page breaks, because the resultset is returning too many rows. Is there a way to set a page break on the rows? or if not, is there a way to set up a vertical sliding bar on the page?
Thanks in advance.

Have a stacked pivot table with various dimensions on columns such as month and scenario.

How in the above example can I return actual, budget and variance for one month but only budget for the YTD? I can make the column blank by putting a CASE WHEN in the formula but the pivot still includes the column, even though blank.

Any help appreciated.

Hi all,

I have a pivot table requirement where I have to display the values and % total of few measures in OBIEE 10g.
Assuming there are 3 measure fields Measure1, Measure2, Measure3 from a fact table, below is the format

_"Measure Name"______|___"Values"______|_____"% Total"_______
< measure1 field name> | | <% Total of measure 1>
< measure2 field name> | | <% Total of measure 2>
< measure3 field name> | | <% Total of measure 3>
Grand Total___________|___Total Value____|________ 100%

First row are the titles of the columns.
First Column gives the measure entity name/label, second and third columns give the corresponding Measure's value and % of Total.
I could get the "Values" column work, but could not get the '% Total' to come up in the Pivot.

Is there a better way of implementing this if not a Pivot?

Is there a way to rename different pivot table views we added to composite view.
