How to make Chart Title dynamic based on group selection

hi,

I have created a group within a dimension in chart properties, I have 5 different selections that the user can

choose to change the dimensions.

I would like the chart title to change according to the user selected dimension(1 of the 5 choices) from within the group.

How do i do this ?

TIA

I am putting what you suggested:

=GetCurrentField([group name])

in the expression after I click "show title in chart".

I could not find the group I created from within the Edit expression/Fields/Field

Please advise

Actually I want the TITLE to be in the General Tab/ Window Title.

But either way in the expression I am not able to find the Group I created so I can select that in

the expression you suggested

How do I put a static string field before the expression you gave me.

example: FY09 Chart for: GROUP NAME EXPRESSION THAT YOU GAVE ME.

(btw, the expression works.)

Hi,

type your group name into the brackets like

=GetCurrentField([TimeDrill])

as example.

Add text do the following: ='Your text: ' &GetCurrentField([TimeDrill]

Re: How to make Chart Title dynamic based on group selection

Hey Rainer

your answer has been helpful, however I'm still having a small issue, where I've edited the Label of the fields in the Group settings. ie original field name "Charge_cust", and i edited the label to "customer"..

when executing the code as per example, it displays the original field name instead of the edited label name.

else where int he chart is displaying the edited label name.

any pointers would be great.

Thanks.

Bon.
