You can use the Formula Edit dialog box to create or edit a dynamic formula in a report. This topic describes the properties in the dialog box.
Specify the name of the formula.
Select a view element type that you want to use the formula as: Group, Detail, or Aggregation. When you are creating a dynamic formula, the default value is blank, which means that Logi Report defines whether the formula can be used as an aggregation object, and if not, the formula will be used as a detail object.
Server lists the fields that are available to formulas. The fields include the group, detail, and aggregation objects in the current business view, the dynamic formulas and aggregations that you have created in the report, and local/global parameters. You can double-click a field to insert it into the editing box at the insertion point.
Server lists the Logi Report built-in functions and user defined functions that are available to formulas. You can double-click a function to insert it into the editing box at the insertion point completely with its required syntax items (such as parentheses and commas).
Server lists the operators that are available to formulas. You can double-click an operator to insert it into the editing box at the insertion point.
In this box, you can build and edit your formula, using several ways:
- Double-click an item in the Fields, Functions, and Operators boxes to insert it in the formula.
- Type your formula directly.
- Paste formula contents here.
Select to test the formula syntax. If it is incorrect, you need to correct the errors.
