Am facing a problem on Totalling on Business Objects OLAPI.
Automatic totals? is the ability to add a total to the rows or to the columns of your report.
Additionally when drilling down, OLAPI keeps the parent in the column of information. This results in double counting because automatic totals in OLAPI sums everything in the column (Even subtotals) so you get double counting.
[+]6200 - GENERAL AND ADMINISTRATIVE 200
[+]8700 - OTHER INCOME & EXP 100
Once I drill down
[-]6200 - GENERAL AND ADMINISTRATIVE 200
[+]6300 - SALARIES AND BENEFITS 200
[-]8700 - OTHER INCOME & EXP 100
[+]8715 - Misc Expenses 100
How can I solve this problem as the user wants to see the subtotal at the 6200 & 8715 level above ... but then the Total double-counts
So you can see in the OLAPI example above, the first view adds up correctly. When I drill down, the number is doubled, even though I am just showing more detail and the total should really be the same.
We are using the following versions :
1) The OLAPI version is BusinessObjects OLAP Intelligence XI R2 188.8.131.523
2) The Microsoft Analysis Services Server 2000 version is : 8.00.2039
Am sure there are many experts who have found a creative sloution to this.
