1. Conditional Formatting of Calculated Items in OBIEE 11g

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:

  1. Use HTML formatting tricks to “hide” trigger text in the results, then conditionally format off those triggers.
  2. Convert the pivot table to a regular table with some complex column formulas.
  3.  Convert the calculated result to text and manually add your formatting characters.

He then explained another solution  – read the blog here.
