What will you learn?
Attendees will discover how to create, add, edit and delete:
- Simple Formulas (basic arithmetic calculations, through to CASE statements)
- Pre-Defined Formulas (based on formula templates defined by an administrator or straight out of the box)
- Freehand SQL (based on an SQL segment inserted into the main report query)
- Advanced Functions (transforming results by applying calculations once they have been returned from the database)
Calculated Fields allow you to create basic calculations with the fields available in your report. The Calculated Field option will create new unique fields for your report. You create Calculated Fields when you need to derive data from fields, such as ratios or subtractions. For example, you might create a Calculated Field if you wanted to determine the ratio of outstanding invoice amounts.
Advanced Functions are used to transform results by applying post-processing calculations to the initial query results. These functions are database independent, as they are performed by Java code, rather than being part of the SQL query.
Unable to make it?
The Webinars will be recorded for on-demand viewing for those unable to attend one of the scheduled session times. Look out for a link to the recording in the next Yellowfin Newsletter!
We look forward to seeing you there.
