Victor Fagundo, in ORACLENERD, discussed the problem of while calculated items in OBIEE are easy and flexible, they do have one important drawback: they take on the data and display formatting of the fact column they are calculated against.
He discussed 3 possible and common solutions:
- Use HTML formatting tricks to “hide” trigger text in the results, then conditionally format off those triggers.
- Convert the pivot table to a regular table with some complex column formulas.
- Convert the calculated result to text and manually add your formatting characters.
He then explained another solution – read the blog here.
In this blog post on ‘Praveen’s blog’, he presents a table that contains a list of the predefined presentation variables.
