7 1.3 New Terminology Some of the terminology used with the Data Warehouse has changed. The table below lists the terminology changes. Terminology in Previous Version (5.1) Corporate Documents / Canned Queries Queries or Reports Results Conditions Terminology in New Version (XI) Public Documents Documents Result Objects Query Filters Query Panel This is where a query is built. It is made up of four panes (sections). Query Panel Toolbar - Allows user to perform various functions such as executing a query. Data Manager Pane - Class and objects are displayed along the left side of the screen. Results Objects pane - These are the objects a user has chosen to be displayed in a report. Query Filters pane - Objects are used to narrow your search range. For example, Reporting Term. Document - consists of two parts: the query and the report. Query - The combination of result objects and query filters needed to pull the desired data from the Data Warehouse. Report - the presentation of the data returned from executing the query. Predefined conditions - This object was created to automatically retrieve the data based on a predefined period of time. These objects are recognized with a yellow filter in front of their name and are used in the Query Filters pane. Last Saved: 3/31/10 9:40 AM Page 7 of 78

8 2.0 Web Intelligence Basics This section will discuss how to create new documents and modify them. 2.1 New Web Intelligence Documents In Business Objects XI, reports and queries are two separate entities. A report is the presentation of the query. A query defines the data columns, query filters, query prompts and calculations that are applied to the database objects selected to generate the report. The term for the combined item that consists of both a query and its resulting report is called a Web Intelligence Document (i.e., document). By default, a document is created when all the selected objects and measures in the query are displayed in a report. Once a Web Intelligence Document is built, the report, the query (data), or both can be edited. NOTE: If an existing document is edited, any new objects added to the query will also need to be added to the report. This is done by clicking on the object and dragging it into the report. New objects will not be automatically added to the report. Before creating a new document, it is helpful to form a business question to construct a query that returns the desired data. This prevents retrieving more data than necessary and executing a query multiple times before achieving the desired report. Example of a business question: How many students were enrolled in the curriculum code T90920 (Learn and Earn Online) at my college for Fall, 2008 and Spring, 2009? The following questions are a guide to use when creating a query. Question Answer Query Component 1. Where is the data located? Choose the appropriate universe. Curriculum-II Universe 2. What measures object? Number of students. Student Registrations Object 3. Which dimension objects? Curriculum code and reporting term. Curriculum code and Reporting Term Objects 4. What is the time object? Select the two reporting terms. Reporting Term In List ; Last Saved: 3/31/10 9:40 AM Page 8 of 78

15 Query Panel Toolbar Button Description Purpose Show/Hide Data Manager Show/Hide Filter Pane Create a second query Add a combined query View SQL Run Query Close Query Panel By default, the classes and objects are displayed. If you have a large query with many result objects, then you may want to hide the objects to see more data. A toggle that hides the Query Filters pane to allow you to display more result objects. User can create a second query on the same report to retrieve data that could not be in the first query. (Example: on and off campus FTE) Queries that are combined with the SQL operators UNION, INTEREST, and MINUS. Launch the SQL Viewer to view SQL query. Execute the query and retrieve the data. A user can close with changes or close to undo changes. 2.7 Data Manager The Data Manager has two tabs: Data and Properties. The Data tab list all the objects a user can choose from to build a document. The Properties tab will list information about the report and various options. Data Tab Objects are grouped in folders. To open a folder, click on the + sign beside the folder. A list of objects will be displayed to build a report. Last Saved: 3/31/10 9:40 AM Page 15 of 78

16 There are several object types displayed within the Data Manger pane. Dimension Measure Filter (Blue square) Denotes text data. Example: (Orange bar) A number to be analyzed. Example: (Yellow funnel) This is a pre-defined condition a user can select instead of creating one. Example: Search Function (Data Tab) Web Intelligence has the ability to Search ( ) for an object. In the example below, the word college is searched. Web Intelligence locates the first instance of college. Press Enter to search for the next instance of the search word. NOTE: To search for another part of the object name other than the first word, place an * in front of the word. If not, the search will fail. Properties Tab It is recommended that the option Allow other users to edit all queries be disabled unless you specifically want other users to have the ability to edit a document. This would have to be done each time a document is created. No other changes are needed in the Properties tab. Last Saved: 3/31/10 9:40 AM Page 16 of 78

18 2.9 Query Filters Query Filters are used to limit the amount of data in a report. For example, data can be limited to a particular reporting term or curriculum code. Query Filters are made up of the three parts - Objects, - Operators, - Operands Objects Objects are selected from the Data Manager pane and dragged into the Query Filter pane. Example: Reporting Term. Operators See the list below for available operators. Operator Equal to Not Equal to Greater than Greater than or Equal to Less than Less than or Equal to Between Not Between In list Not in List Is null Is not null Explanation Equal to one value. Select all other values not equal to one particular value. Greater than a particular number, date, or character. Greater than or equal particular number, date, or character. Less than a particular number, date, or character. Less than or equal to a particular number, date, or character. Records between and including two values for example, Total Number of Student between 20 and 30. All values outside a particular range. Returns only the records matching the value or multiple values specified. If multiple values are specified, separate each with a semicolon (;). Returns records that do not match any of the values specified. If multiple values are specified, separate each with a semicolon (;). Records are returned in which no value has been entered, i.e., is empty. Null is not the same as zero. Returns records that contain a value. Last Saved: 3/31/10 9:40 AM Page 18 of 78

19 Operator Matches pattern Explanation Returns records that begin with or end with a particular string. This operator is used with a wildcard character such as % or _ (underscore). % - matches more than one space. _ (underscore) matches one particular space. A% will return all curriculum codes beginning with A. _1% will return all curriculum codes with 1 as the second position. Different from pattern Both Except Does not match the pattern specified. Returns records containing both of the two values that you specify. You must specify two values as the criteria for this operator. Returns records containing values other than the value you specify for this operator. Operands Operands allow you to specify the values used to limit the data in your report. Constant Values(s) from List Prompt Add a Filter Allows a value to be typed. If multiple values are entered, connect them with a semicolon with no spaces. Returns the list of values for the field that are in the database, if a list of values is available for the particular object. NOTE: Click the Refresh Value(s) button to update the list. Allows a user to selects the value(s) each time the query is executed. Example: Create a reporting term prompt to analyze data from different reporting terms. Click on an object and drag it from the Data Manager pane to the Query Filters pane. The object does not have to be a result object and it can be a measure object. A predefined condition object can be used as well. Example: Remove a Filter Click and drag the object from Query Filters pane into the Data Manager pane. Last Saved: 3/31/10 9:40 AM Page 19 of 78
