Cameron Lackpour says, “This is the third and final installment of a three part series on ASO calculations, and specifically, ASO Planning calculations.  Thus far I’ve showed how to use the @CalcMgrExecuteEncryptMaxLFile via Calculation Manager which is pretty cool, and then how to make ASO procedural calculations in MaxL fast, fast, fast.”

6. Migrate Your SQL Developer User Defined Reports

Danny Byrant says, “I’m in the process of upgrading my work computer and in an effort to make sure it is configured the way I want it, I decided to forego the automated “side-by-side” migration.  Everything was going well until I got around to SQL Developer.  The install as we know is easy enough, and I even went so far as to download and configure the Oracle Instant Client (OCI).  You can read more about that on Jeff’s Blog post.”
