OBIEE Column headings

This post on OTN (http://forums.oracle.com/forums/thread.jspa?threadID=852758&tstart=15) triggered me to have closer look at the column headings possibilities

Lets start with a simple report (Sample Sales):

To alter the column heading go to Table View Properties:

In the Display Column & Table Headings you have five choices:

image

Only column headings:

image

As separate rows

image

This allows you to customize the column heading over two rows:

image

image

As Table.Column

image

As Table.Column (Where needed)

image

Doesn't seem to change anything at first glance, but works fine when you have two columns with the same name from different folders:

No column or table headings

I want to show only one row on report. Is it possible to show column headings vertically and there vale in front of it in OBIEE?. for eg.
ID 1
Name john

instead regular tabular format of
Id Name
1 john

Why don't you use a narrative view?

Is there a way to make the table headings show up in a Pivot Table?

John Minkjan said...

Craig Not really sure what you are looking for, check if your measure labels aren't set to hidden.

My pivot table has 10 seperate measures in columns. I want to display 5 columns in one row and the remaining 5 columns on other row.

Kindly let me know how can I do that?

Thanks in advance

I know exactly what craig is getting at. There is a difference between the column heading and the table headings when you look at the table view. Measure labels show the column headings but not the table ones. I have been trying without success to get the table headings to show in a pivot table. Any ideas?
