Error description

  • User has issues with drilling up/down within a chart in Cognos
    Business Insight.??Scenario description:??User is using a
    stacked column chart. They need to show only the total of the
    stacked bar on top.?For this purpose, we created a line chart
    with a data item using the formula "total([Value])".?The report
    shows fine, but when we drilled down, on some cases the total
    was not filtered after drilling, leaving the line as it was
    before drilling down.?To work around this, we changed the
    formula to "total([Value] within set [Item in Series])"?After
    doing this, the report drills down properly when running it in
    Report Studio.??The problem:??The issue comes in when we include
    the report in Business Insight dashboards. Even if the report is
    included alone in the dashboard, the drilling-down does not work
    for the total. When we click on the series to drill down, the
    total stays as it was before the drill down. The total does not
    filter down to the drilling selection.??This behavior does not
    happen in Report Studio/Cognos Viewer.??
